Chris Steele


Chris Steele drives the #2 Crate Late Model Class car.  His home track is Lancaster Motor Speedway but he can also be found racing at Carolina Speedway, Riverside Speedway, I-77 Speedway and Cherokee Super Speedway.  He lives in York, SC.  People who help Chris are:  Wayne Thrift, Rick Boatwright, Kenny Blackwell, Donald Deese, David Sexton, Billy Robinson, Mandie (wife) and Jeremy (3 1/2 yr old son).

He started racing in 1988 in the Street Stock Class at Lancaster Motor Speedway for the thrill of it......speed!  His first win was in 1989 in the Street Stock Class at the age of 14 at Chester Speedway.  Career highlights include Track Champion at Metrolina Speedway in 1991, '92, and '93 in Street Stock, Track Champion at Lancaster Motor Speedway in '92 and '93 in Street Stock and 165 wins total. 

The thrill of racing for Chris is VICTORY!  His most exciting racing moment was winning the Burns Ford Super Stock Nationals at Lancaster Motor Speedway in 2001.  He started dead last, got drivers side door and fenders torn off in wreck on first lap.  White flag lap was running second, coming to Checker Flag the leader (Jeff Knight) blew his engine.  Chris won by 1/2 car length.  He's most proud of being a clean driver and having a reputation for it.  Any driver knows when he's behind them or beside them he won't run over them on purpose.

Of racing, Chris says, "Do it as long as you enjoy it.  When racing is no longer fun.....quit!".
