Steve started racing in 2000 in the Street Stock Class at Charleston Speedway after being a race fan for years, going to Macon Speedway when he was young, he always wanted to race a Modified.  Well he finally made it.  His first win was in 2001 in the Super Street Stock Class at Charleston Speedway.  Career highlights include, while only racing 12 times in '06, he made the WOO Show at Farmer City Raceway, the Wolf Pack Show at Highland in a new car, won his Heat race at Clay County Speedway the first night he raced in 2006, 3 Heat wins in nine attempts at Macon Speedway in 2005, finished runner-up in the Sportsman Division in '03 at Clay County Speedway with 3 Heat wins, 3 Feature wins and finished 2nd by 12 points.

The thrill of racing for Steve is being a weekend warrior and racing competitively with the guys he grew up idolizing (the Jim and Jeff Leka's, Denny Schwartz).  His most exciting racing moment was his first win in a Modified.  That had always been his main goal.  Now his new goal is some Feature wins.  He's most proud of being a very low budget racer.  He's built 5 different cars in 6 years.  Starting with a Street Stock and ending with his '03 Lightning Modified.  Just knowing that with what money he has to work with and the results he's able to get.  That is encourage enough for him to keep going!  One of these days he will impress someone or land that big sponsor, if he keeps working hard and set his goals at an achievable level.  You have to crawl before you walk and you have to walk before you run!

Steve's racing hero is Jeff Gordon.

Of racing, Steve says, "Support your local Dirt Track.  This is where it all started .....on Dirt!  I'm a NASCAR fan, but, you will not find the Door to Door, in your face type of racing you can get at your local Dirt Track in any NASCAR racing event.  We need the support from all the local Race Track fans to help keep tracks like Macon going.  Without you, we can't do what we all love....racin.  White knuckle, heart pumping action that draws you to the track each and every weekend.  Please come out and support us, our sponsors and your local Dirt Track!  Never stop dreaming!  Then chase those dreams!  Life is strange.  One minute you're on the outside looking in.  Next thing you know, you're right in the middle of things mixing it up with everyone else.  You may one day have the opportunity to do exactly what you've always dreamed you could do!
