VIDEO: Daddy Dave’s “Goliath” Returns Good As New After NPK Crash

The last time “Daddy Dave” Comstock was in the news was for a reason nobody ever wishes to be nor wishes upon anyone else: a wrecked racecar.

Back in July, the Street Outlaws star had an off-course excursion with the guardrail at the “No Prep Kings” event at South Georgia Motorsports Park that did considerable damage to his pristine, freshly-upgraded “Goliath” Chevy II. Over the winter, Dave had commissioned Tynan Race Cars in Missouri to give the car a facelift inside and out, upgrading the chassis to double framerail, putting in a new 4-link, and lowering the ride height for better control and weight transfer. He also switched back to the ProCharger combination, purchasing a complete Pro Line Racing Hemi with a ProCharger F-3X-140 out front. Goliath had never looked better, until that fateful race in Georgia against Bobby Ducote.

After the accident, Comstock returned to Oklahoma and quickly set out to survey the damage; after confirming it was indeed repairable, he and Tynan got to work rebuilding the car back to good as new, and despite a more than two-month layoff (which, if you’ve tried to get any kind of parts anywhere lately, is an impressive feat in itself), the car was finally buttoned up and hauled to Thunder Valley Raceway Park for testing in late September before returning to the “No Prep Kings” circuit in Denver this past weekend.
