"Happy Birthday" Donald Chisholm

April 14, 1976
  Donald Chisholm
From Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Donald is the son of legendary entrepreneur and philanthropist John Chisholm. John built Riverside International Speedway in 1969 and repurchased the track in 2005, renovating it into its current state. John Chisholm was inducted into the Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2015.

A highlight for Donald was winning the Wilson Equipment 300 at  his home track in 2014. He captured the victory less than two months after his father and track founder, John, passed away.  Chisholm picked up his first career pole with a speed of 82.443 mph. He would go on to lead 103 laps in the event to pick up his first career win, beating out series regular Andrew Ranger who faded late after leading 106 laps to finish 4th.

Chisholm currently drives the #89 Keltic Ford/Nova Construction Ford Fusion for NOVA Racing in the Parts For Trucks Pro Stock Tour.

In 2015 Chisholm came into the season with hopes of capturing his first Pro Stock Tour championship. Despite picking up just one win in the Lucas Oil 150 at Riverside International Speedway, Chisholm put together one of the most consistent performances of his career. He would record eight top five finishes, along with eleven top tens in twelve starts to capture the title by just nine points over 2nd place Dylan Blenkhorn.
