Thirty five years ago, Steve Springsteel won the 1983 Modern Stock championship in his #78 Cavalier.


His first victory came about on May 24, 1975 and, six victories followed along with the crown eight years later and, his last year was in 1984 and went to focus on his fabricating business. He had done bodies for: Glenn Osborn (won the crown in 1984), Chuck Kjosza, Jr., Ray Evernham, Jr., among others. 


His brother Mike, had four career victories in the Modern Stock in the late 70's in the 03. Ran a Sportsman one year and, decided to stay in the Moderns until Jim Benton became his replacement in the 03. 


Steve, raced not only at Wall Stadium he raced at the then paved New Egypt Speedway by winning a couple of events there like the Marshall Corner 50.
