Since August 18th 2001, NASCAR Steve has served as the self-proclaimed Ambassador to NASCAR for Northern Michigan, taking a fan's perspective as he brings the world of NASCAR to the people of Northern Michigan and beyond.

It started simply enough with a twice weekly feature keeping fans up to date on the latest news of the sport and tons of information about the weekends events. NASCAR Steve's passion struck a cord with Northern Michigan race fans giving them a local source for the information they craved with a local host they could get to know!

Over the years NASCAR Steve has taken the role of ambassador seriously, traveling far and wide to bring fans a better perspective of the sport. Steve has reported live from 39 races at MIS, Bristol's August weekend, Champions weekend @ Homestead-Miami Speedway, Martinsville in October, the Milwaukee Mile, and the Cup Series Points Banquet in New York. Media credentials in hand Steve has also tracked down some of the biggest stars of the sport including Cup Series Champs Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, and Rusty Wallace just to name a few! In 2003 he got behind the wheel attending Richard Petty Driving Experience and Track Time Driving School at MIS and in 2005, made the second cut for Reality Racing: the Rookie Experience reality TV show on Spike TV.

Steve's NASCAR notoriety hasn't changed the fact that he is a LOCAL personality; he has hosted over 400 live events, attended numerous nights at local tracks including Cherry, Merritt, Kalamazoo and Northern Michigan Speedway, and helped promote the 2008 Chick-Fil-A Kyle Petty Charity Ride kickoff in Traverse City.

NASCAR Steve continues to be a Northern Michigan favorite as wheelman for the FAST LANE on Classic Rock The BEAR...
