SAD FOR those who knew steven i dont think you could find nothing but a friend .I MET HIM IN 1980 hanging out with my youngest brother i thought man short with red hair bottle of turkey sitting on his center console this kid must be trouble ... turned out not even close .we were hanging out behind old suntide when he left to find some girls that got lost . my brother decided to follow a couple of minutes later then i .. well he found the girls after crossing the old lift bridge and turned around with out looking to catch up to them .. not thinking it wasnt a good move and wham pulled right out in front of my brother the side of that trans am he steven was driving didnt look the same and the newly replaced hard to get right front fender of my brothers 68 camero didnt look so good either .. they laughed it off no one was hurt ....had to wait for dad to come out and cut that fender off in the middle of the night .. four years or so later steven was at cc speedway sitting with his dad watching us race . he mentioned i want to do that its easy as most grand stand racers think.. i heard his dad say .you can not afford that and drinking you have to give one up ..how many racers back then stopped drinking to go racing ..a lot . i didnt give him much of a thought he raced the upper class but his dad joined our class and was not doing so well we spent more time trying to not run over frank on the track . so i helped them get the car running fast just to keep us safe ..lol.. .. from then on we were good friends ... you didnt see steve mad a lot and mostly he kept it to himself if he was .. we spent many years teamed up and hos dad pops was a hugh reason why the mini stocks ran through the 90s we built a lot of cars and in many cases steve and frank paid for those cars to help others out ... steve never set the world on fire racing and was not all that bad at it in that number 55 red bull mustang . but you knew who he was and for the most part knew you were going to get a race out of him on the track and a friend ....he was the smartest bearing and seal man i ever knew id call him tell him what i had and he always made it happen . and he found some crazy set ups for some of my repairs saved me tons of money .. ........................... in ending because i can go on and on about him .... I CAN THINK OF VERY FEW WHO I COULD CALL A TRUER FRIEND RESPECTED BY MOST THAN STEVEN ..........................RIP RED
