Donnie Floyd
Gulf War Veteran, Former Police Officer, Chaplain thru Motor Racing Outreach †

I am a pretty normal guy I suppose. Besides almost killing myself in a motorcycle crash and being diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome at age 14, I've had a great life, more than I could every ask for. I've done and seen things that most people never will. I spent eight years in the Air Force as a Security Forces Peacekeeper. I got to tour the world, lived in South Korea for two years, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War, and several places in the states. I take great pride in serving my country for eight years.

My joy from serving led me to a career in Law Enforcement for five years. I worked in patrol, street drugs, and later a Vice/Narcotics investigator. I saw things while in these two careers that would change how I viewed life. Seeing poverty, death, hate, different cultures, different languages, and even the power of government made me look at life from a different perspective.

God had other plans for me and I took a job with Hendrick Motorsports on the #5 NASCAR race team in 1999. I've toured the race circuit from race to race in pit support all over America, I've been a part of 208 wins and have been fortunate enough to receive 9 Championship rings. I've been able to work on the cars of great drivers such as Terry Labonte, Brian Vickers, Casey Mears, Kyle Busch, Mark Martin, Dale Earnhardt Jr.,Kasey Kahne, Jeff Gordon and Chase Elliott. After 17 seasons, I moved to a new role as the full-time Chaplain at Hendrick Motorsports through Motor Racing Outreach. I now serve the emotional and spiritual well-being of over 550 teammates.

​I have been married for 28 years and we have two children, 19 and 22. I enjoy mountain and Road bike riding. My current passion is playing the acoustic guitar and watching our teams race every weekend!

God's free grace awoke me. Living, but not for myself anymore!
