SO excited!!! [Saturday, August 28th, 2004 @ 6:44pm]

I am VERY excited about this, because I will be at the race!! I watched him
race mods before, and he totally rocks!!! :D


An old friend of the Modified Series is expected to return to action in the
division at the Sylvania 100 Sept. 17 at New Hampshire International
Speedway.

Officials from Whelen Engineering are expected to announce next week that
former Ellington resident Steve Park will try to qualify for the event in a
car owned by Joe Brady.

Brady confirmed Thursday that Park, who is 11th in the Craftsman Truck
Series, will drive his car at NHIS.

"It's ready to go," Brady said. "It's going to be fun. We were together in
the early '90s and won a couple championships at New Smyrna [Fla.] Speedway.
When we were in Florida in February, we talked about doing this and it just
came together with the trucks racing at New Hampshire that weekend."

Park last competed in the Modified Series in 1996, when he finished second
in the standings. Park is seventh all time in the Modified Series with 16
career victories.

By Colleen Marie Lynch

It was just another one of those days for Steve Park. Steve qualified the Orleans truck in the 20th position, but with Carl Edwards' engine change, Steve moved up to 20th.

The caution came out very early. After being hit by Andy Petree on lap one, Bill Lester spun around on the track. Steve went low and just barely avoided hitting Lester's truck. On the restart, Steve was in 19th.

Caution 2 came out on lap 25. Ken Weaver spun with what appeared to be a cut tire. Steve was in 18th on the restart.

On lap 34, Joe Aramendia spins and Bill Lester gets into him causing the 3rd caution of the day.

Steve moves into the 17th position on lap 47.

Jack Sprague, who had been leading the race was passed by Rick Crawford on lap 56. Hamilton also passed Sprague. On lap 67, Hamilton also passed Crawford for the lead.

On lap 73, Carl Edwards passes Steve moving him into the 18th position.

Andy Petree rams into David Starr on lap 80. Chad Chaffin also gets into the wall and stops, but instead of waiting for the track to clear, he backs into traffic getting into Steve at least twice. Musgrave and Huffman were also involved in the accident.

Steve is in 20th on the lap 95 restart. Caution came out only 10 laps later on lap 105. Bill Lester had heavy front end damage. Park, and Brad Keselowski were also involved.

The green flag had just begun to fly on lap 109 when caution number 6 came out because Ken Weaver couldn't get going. He said his water bottle got stuck under the throttle. Steve was in position 21.

Joe Aramendia spins on lap 126, but no caution is called. 12 laps later, Ken Schrader goes behind the wall.

Steve was in the 20th position on lap 142, 16.207 seconds behind the leader. 3 laps later, Steve moved into the 19th position. Caution number 7 also came out on lap 145, because Tina Gordon was smoking.

Steve continued to move up. On lap 158, he moved into the 18th position. Caution number 8 came out on lap 160 after Joe Aramendia spins after Andy Housten got into him. Mike Skinner is currently leading the race.

Kevin Love has a problem with his truck calling out the 9th caution on lap 192. On the lap 199 restart, Steve is in the 13th position.

Ken Weaver spins with 41 laps to go bringing out the 10th caution of the day. With 28 to go, Steve is in the 12th position. He moves up into the top ten with 20 laps to go. Dana White then cut down in front of Steve's truck causing him damage and moving him back to 24th.

With 6 laps to go, Steve moves into the 23rd position. Steve's tire goes down with 4 to go after making contact earlier with Carl Edwards. Steve brushes the wall and has to pit for new right side tires.

Andy Petree crashes into Bill Lester after crossing the finish line.

Steve ends the race 1 lap down in the 26th position.

MARTINSVILLE POST-QUALIFYING QUOTES [Friday, April 16th, 2004 @ 6:46pm]

cinemaprincess
MARTINSVILLE, Va., April 16, 2004 – Steve Park, driver of the No. 62 Orleans Dodge in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, qualified 22nd April 26 for the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway.



Park’s fastest lap was 20.865 seconds, 90.755 mph. Jack Sprague earned the Bud Pole with a lap of 20.499, 92.375.



“The truck was worse in qualifying. We were better in practice,” said Park, who ranked 20th in practice with a lap of 20.836, 90.881. “We made some changes after practice and thought we would run faster. We found a problem at the end of practice, and we fixed it before qualifying. The bad thing is that the change made the truck a lot looser. At least we know we can keep it consistent in Happy Hour and work toward our race setup.”



Park’s qualifying effort was similar to his two previous outings with Orleans Racing. He qualified 22nd at Daytona and 27th at Atlanta. “We don’t go to the racetrack to win qualifying,” Park said. “I’ve said it each week. We are out there to win the race, and we’ve had a really strong truck at both races. So that is proof that qualifying isn’t always a good indication of how you will be in the race.” The Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway begins at 1 p.m. (EST) April 17. It will be broadcast live on SPEED.

Dodge Ram Daytona Notes [Saturday, February 14th, 2004 @ 2:01am]

cinemaprincess
STEVE PARK (No. 62 The Orleans Hotel Dodge Ram) –
“I don’t know who drives the No. 08 truck, but we got alongside on the frontstretch and he decided, I guess, that he’d just knock me into the wall on the backstretch. I think it was Ken Weaver. I’m not really sure who he is, but maybe he was watching Dale Jr. bump-draft and he figured he could do it too. Maybe he needs a little bit more experience.

“The start of this race is really a good indication of how good this team is and how fast this truck can be, especially compared to how we were yesterday. Johnny Allen, Steve Hibbard and the guys made changes. I had confidence in the truck. It really boosted my confidence. I was taking what they were giving me early on. I wasn’t really even pushing it, yet. It was too early to push it. The Orleans Dodge is a fast race truck, and it is a shame it ended up sitting in the garage. This is a shame for the Orleans Dodge. We had a fast, fast truck tonight. We knew we had a good race truck. We knew we probably wouldn’t qualify well, but we knew we had a good race truck. We had no radio communication. We were using hand signals to communicate. I kept coming in putting my thumb up telling them to just put tires on it.”

“We went three wide and David Reutimann who I think drives Darrell Waltrip’s truck went low. Maybe Darrell needs to give him a driving lesson because he is probably not too impressed with what he did there. He took me out, and he took Bobby Hamilton out, which I feel bad about because Bobby had a good truck. I have to remember where I am. The Craftsman Truck Series has a lot of regulars and a lot of rookies, too. I learned a big lesson tonight.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Chances are Ken Weaver won't be getting a Christmas card this year from Steve Park - and Christmas is 10 months away.

Park was steaming mad at Weaver on Friday night after Park and Weaver wrecked on the backstretch of Daytona International Speedway before the halfway point of the Florida Dodge Dealers 250 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race. moreCollapse )

Steve in Shootout? [Friday, January 30th, 2004 @ 10:01am]

cinemaprincess
RadioShack to sponsor a team? #77? #1? UPDATE 4 ?? RadioShack will shortly announce a NASCAR team deal that will see it serve as primary sponsor on a car for a handful of races, today's SportsBusiness Daily reports. The story does not say which NASCAR series the sponsorship is scheduled for.(NASCAR Scene Daily Newsletter), RadioShack has been linked in the past the the Hall of Fame Racing team [Aikman and Staubach as owners](1-22-2004)
UPDATE: two sources hear it'll be the #77 Dodge, another says it will be the #1 DEI Chevy in a few selects races.(1-24-2004)
UPDATE 2: and yet another source tells me it is the #4 Morgan McClure Chevy team who RadioShack will sponsor.(1-27-2004)
UPDATE 3: now hearing that RadioShack will NOT sponsor any Cup teams in 2004?(1-29-2004)
UPDATE 4: not sure what is happening with this rumor, seems a bit 'out of control', but have been told, RadioShack [Shaq?] will NOT be the sponsor for the #4 Morgan McClure team, HOWEVER, they could sponsor the #77 Dodge in the Budweiser Shootout and put either Steve Park or Jeff Green in the car. Both won poles in 2003, but are not otherwise entered in the race.(1-30-2004)
