Darel Dieringer (born June 1, 1926 - died October 28, 1989) was a NASCAR Grand National and Winston Cup driver from Indianapolis, IN. He made his debut in 1957 driving for John Zink and John Whitford but would see little success until 1963, when driving for Bill Stroppe, he won a race, logged 15 top tens, and finished 7th in points. A solid 1964 was followed up by an even better 1965 season when Dieringer collected 15 more top tens in addition to another win and finished 3rd in series points behind Ned Jarrett and Dick Hutcherson while driving for Bud Moore and a variety of other owners. However, he struggled with reliability in 1966 and despite capturing 3 wins only finished 12th in points. Dieringer ran a part time schedule in 1967 and 1968 with limited success and a single race in 1969. He was out of NASCAR until 1975 when he returned for the Charlotte and Superspeedway races and then retired.
