Vintage car and Steve has been a fan since he was 5 years old. His

Speedway. Career highlights include 5 Feature wins in Vintage
Coupe Racing, 1 Clean Sweep, Heat, Trophy and Feature, in Rising City,

The thrill of racing for Steve is
driving the car close racing. His most exciting racing moment was
racing at Knoxville, IA in a coupe car and when Alan Kulwicki stopped
his car on Daytona Track because he saw Steve, as a fan, photographing
Alan's car through the fence. He's most proud of trying not to
drive over his head and cause needless wrecks.
Steve's racing hero is Richard Petty and
all of the local drivers from the '60's and '70's.
Of racing, Steve says, "Driving the car
is only part of it. Car preparation and upkeep isn't easy!".
