Big Steve and Maggie
Big Steve is a truck driver by trade and tends to drop in at sprint car races all over the country at any time. I once saw him at a Eldora $50,000 race when he walked in about feature time. I knew there was no parking in the area, so asked where he parked his truck? He put it in the road out front with his flashers on stopped right on the highway?
He sets up his loads to go to specific races as his racing schedule is preset ahead of time. Since he owns his own rig, he can do that. Being from Pennsylvania, his history is there and Williams Groove, Port Royal and many other PA tracks see him often. Big Steve lives in Arizona with his wife, Canadian born Maggie, and they like to go places to see new stuff, so often tourist stuff is included in racing trips.
We have seen the pair at many races over time, but often when we go to Arizona for the races, he is off pulling a load somewhere. His racing knowledge and the racing people he knows is ovewhelming. Often our time together is spent discussing what we had seen and recalliing it. I remember seeing him at Knoxville in the early 80's walking around during the Knoxville Nationals before I got to know him. He walked up and asked what I was doing there, already knowing I preferred the traditional cars. He has been a major Wagtimes supporter over the years. There are many stories he can tell at the drop of a hat, so being with him is always revealing in a good way. He would love to just drive locally so he could be home more, and he's working on that.
