“Steve was a wonderful Sports Journalist who wrote numerous stories on our events, and featured many of our racers,” stated Stephanie Peterson, Marketing Director of US 131 Motorsports Park.  Peterson continued, “Steve became a friend over the almost two decades that we worked together.  He was a kind man and will be missed both personally and professionally.  Our hearts are with Kristen, Noelle and Eli.”
