Daniel "Danny" Efland (born October 4, 1988 in Irmo, South Carolina)[1] is a NASCAR driver who races for JD Motorsports in the Nationwide Series. He has also competed in USAR Pro Cup and the Camping World Truck Series. He graduated with honors from Dutch Fork High School and graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in engineering.

Early career

From 1999–2002, Efland won 7 state championships as well as 5 National World Karting Association championships. Moving on to the Pro 4 Mod class at Florence Motor Speedway in 2002, he won the track championship as well as rookie of the year honors.[2] He won his first late model race in 2005, and went on to win 8 more races in 2006.

Nationwide Series

In 2007, Efland made his Busch Series debut at New Hampshire International Speedway. Driving the #01 Chevrolet for JD Motorsports, he started 36th and finished 40th after retiring due to handling problems. He ran two more races that season and failed to finish either of them. In 2008, he returned to JD and competed in 18 races. Success was hard to find and he only managed a best finish of 23rd at Lowe's Motor Speedway. After not racing in the series in 2009, Efland returned to run a limited schedule in 2010 and 2011, scoring a best career finish of 16th at Darlington Raceway.

Efland plans to run a partial 2012 schedule in the No. 4 Chevrolet for JD Motorsports.[3]

To date in 2012, Danny has finished both Nationwide Daytona races in 13th position. He also picked up a strong finish at Talladega in 16th position.

It was announced on January 21, 2013 that Efland will return to the No. 4 JD Motorsports Chevrolet in 27 of the 33 races for the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series season,[4] but was released from the team in late March.

Camping World Truck Series

Efland made two start and park efforts for Corrie Stott Racing in 2009, finishing 33rd and 31st. In 2013 he returned to the series at Kansas Speedway, driving the No. 6 for Eddie Sharp Racing.[5]
