Racing careerEdit

ARCA Racing SeriesEdit

In 2014, Dauzat made his ARCA Racing Series debut at Talladega, finishing 26th.[3] He attempted to qualify for the season-opening race at Daytona the following year but did not make the race.[4] In 2016, Dauzat ran the restrictor plate tracks and qualified but did not start at Kansas.[5]

For 2017, Dauzat teamed up with Bob Rahilly, owner of former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team RahMoc Enterprises. He also acquired a car from JR Motorsports.[6] He also invited prospect Calvin Carroll to test with the team at Daytona.[7] Dauzat ran a career-high five races in 2017, running Daytona, Talladega, Pocono, Chicagoland and Kansas.[8] He returned to Daytona in 2018 but was caught up in a wreck that also included Bo LeMastus and Quin Houff.[9]

Gander Outdoors Truck SeriesEdit

Dauzat made his Camping World Truck Series debut at Bristol in 2014 with FDNY Racing, where he started and finished in the final position of the field, 36th, falling out due to suspension problems.[10] He returned in 2017 to try to qualify for the season-opener at Daytona, but failed to qualify. In 2018, he returned once again to Daytona, where he finished 18th after being knocked out of the top ten in a late wreck in what was originally intended to be FDNY Racing's final race.[11] However, on August 27, 2018, the team announced on its Facebook that they would run the Truck race at Talladega, and with Dauzat driving, the team achieved its first ever top-10 finish in 8th place.

During the season-opening 2019 NextEra Energy 250 at Daytona, Dauzat accidentally hit his jackman Billy Rock on pit road when his truck experienced braking problems. Rock was rushed to Halifax Health for his injuries and was diagnosed with a broken shoulder. He was released from the hospital shortly after.[12]

Personal lifeEdit

Dauzat serves as president of O. B. Builders, a sponsor of his racing career.[13]
