I have a DK V2 frame with 9 races on it and about 8-10 practices. I've heard some talk about frames stretching over time. I was wondering if anyone had any imput on this topic? I plan on doing a lot of riding in 2018 and want to have something solid. I'm wondering if I should get a new frame for 2018?

They'll last longer than that if you're just using them for racing.  I would think up to about 3 years.  I don't hear of aluminum race frames "stretching".  Aluminum has a tendency to get brittle and crack more than stretch.  Just check it every week and ride with confidence.
