BUTLER, Pa. (May 15, 2024) – Despite flirting with the idea of retirement, New Richland, Minnesota’s own Shawn Loken, known to most as the man behind DKW Transport, is back and busier than ever, partnering with an array of entities in 2024 including Fully Injected Motorsports, Donny Schatz and Family, Huset’s Speedway, Justin Henderson, Brandon Ikenberry with driver Kerry Madsen, Landon Simon with driver Logan Seavey, and High Limit Racing’s visit to Lernerville Speedway. 

An impressive run, nonetheless, Loken’s involvement in grassroots motorsports spans almost two decades, offering respective drivers, teams, and entities not only an added avenue of financial support, but simultaneously granting all of his affiliates a more probable path toward success, an idea Loken has always embraced. 

“Shawn and I met over ten years ago at Knoxville Raceway and we’ve been friends ever since, and for him to come on board at Fully Injected Motorsports these last two seasons is something I’ll always appreciate,” Tyler Altmeyer of Fully Injected Motorsports stated. “He’s one of a kind, that’s for sure. I’ve never met someone so dedicated to helping as many people as possible. He does more for racers than most will ever understand.”

“I’ve enjoyed racing for as long as I can remember, and having the opportunity to help drivers and teams in this manner is really special to me, no matter the level,” Shawn Loken expressed. “It’s been a great ride. I’ve had the privilege of meeting a lot of great people and the memories are countless. Watching teams you support perform at the highest level is always something to be proud of, but it’s the interaction that provides the most satisfaction. I’m just a small piece of the pie in some respect, but that piece still makes the pie whole.”

Although a busy slate in 2024, some of which unexpected and spontaneous, Loken’s involvement at the partnership level may finally come to an end, and despite ending ties with those who he has supported, the love and the dire need to be a fan will always remain.

“I know I’ve said it countless times, but I think it’s finally time to retire and spend some of that money on me,” Loken jokingly added. “I’ll always be a fan and I have a hard time not seeing myself at the track here and there. That, for sure, will never change.

“A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has embraced me as one of their own,” Loken continued. “And here’s to what’s ahead.”
