Mike Dayton is the owner and CEO of Swish motorsports. He’s also one of the drivers behind the wheel.

Day to day, Mike is an unassuming, humble, CPA outside of Washington, D.C. He discovered racing nearly by accident. But one taste of the high-speed, adrenaline-pumping action and he was hooked. For the past two decades, Mike has worked as a driver, crew member, and pit boss for a variety of BMW teams. When he saw the opportunity to buy a car of his own, he knew he couldn’t pass it up. And so in 2023, Swish Motorsports was born.

Mike’s love of racing is matched only by his passion for basketball—hence the name Swish. In his younger days, Mike played NCAA college ball, and still coaches the local high school team every season. The thrill of competing and that first drew Mike to hoops was rekindled anew when he discovered the pure exhilaration that comes from pedal-to-the-metal action.
