building a very strong reputation for high quality work
Danny's also did work for many top So. Cal. Motocross racers,
including Ricky Johnson.
Racing was founded in 1977 in Santee, California by
Danny R. Duncan. The company was originally founded
under the name of Danny's Machine Works. For the initial
8 years Danny's Machine Works became very well known
in the southwest United States as one of the premier
hi-performance motorcycle and ATV speed shops. The
company specialized in 4-strokes doing many hi-performance
articles for the likes of 3-Wheeling Magazine.
Paul had made a colossal R&D break through in the mountain
bike industry designing the first pair of Rock Shox (suspended
bicycle front suspension). The idea quickly took off and
Paul left the ATV industry to pursue his mountain bike interests.
Duncan Racing absorbed all business operations for Paul
Turner Racing Engines and the Paul Turner line of pipes,
silencers and porting. Since 1989 Duncan Racing has owned
all PTR products and has designed and manufactured all ATV
mid 1986 the company changed it's name. Loren Duncan,
Danny's oldest son, took over the reins and changed
the name to Duncan Racing International.
In late 1986 Loren hooked up with former Team Honda
Factory rider Marty Hart doing all of his mechanical
work for the balance of his ATV racing career. Through
Marty, Loren met and became business partners with
Paul Turner the founder of Paul Turner Racing Engines
and engine builder for Team Honda.
The decade of the 90's let Duncan Racing establish itself
as the premier hi-performance ATV Company in the industry.
Winning more Pro ATV races worldwide than any other company
by a 5 to 1 margin. While other companies talked fast, Duncan
Racing kept their head down and concentrated on building
the best and most reliable products on the market, while
still maintaining a very service oriented customer relationship.
With an active customer base of almost 15,000 people, over
half of Duncan Racing's customers are recreational enthusiasts
that enjoy riding their ATVs. Duncan caters to all racers
from the National Champion Travis Spader to the local track
beginner. The thing they all have in common is the desire
to receive the highest quality, most reliable products from
the most knowledgeable sales staff.
Many of the top ATV riders in the world have ridden Duncan
Racing bikes or used Duncan products to win their countless
races and championships. Without the excellent testing and
R&D from these riders it would be difficult to achieve
the high level of performance Duncan Racing has set for
itself. We would like to thank the following riders for
their contributions; Marty Hart, Doug Eichner, Bob Sloan,
Travis Spader, Randy Howard, Matt Smiley, Chad Duvall, Ben
Jackson, Don Turk, Rodney Gentry, Barry McCarty, Doug &
Mike Roll, Charlie Sheppard, Brian Fuller, Tavis Cain, Chad
Lohr, Mark Ehrhardt, Garry Denton, Steve Stroud, Paul Winrow,

The new millenium started with a bang for Duncan Racing
with factory team rider Travis Spader winning the AMA 250
Pro ATV National Championship and Doug Eichner/Paul Winrow

race. Duncan also brought out their new 32-page catalog.
