STECKLY KEEPING BUSY DURING THE OFF-SEASON

Milverton, ON - Thursday Jan. 15, 2009: Usually the winter months drag on for racers as they wait for the sun to come out and the temperatures to warm up so they can get back to the track, but not for the 22 Racing Team of Scott Steckly. As the 2008 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Champion, his winter has been almost as busy as the race season.

"It started with a lot of interviews for newspapers and magazines in the U.S. & Canada after the last race," said Steckly. "I have been doing shows and appearances for Tow Truck in a Box and even a few photo shoots for magazines, things I am not used to doing but all very exciting."

All Star Car2 Steckly as the Canadian NASCAR Champion received an automatic invitation to the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale (CA) which takes place in a little over a week. "We have been really busy getting ready for that event," said Steckly. "We are excited to be affiliated with NDS Motorsports for this race. My crew chief Greg Gibson and I have spent some time with Steve Hibbard, a NASCAR winning crew chief and NDS Motorsports Team Manager, getting the car ready to go. He is such a knowledgeable guy and we hope to learn a lot from him over the weekend in California. "

Last weekend, Steckly learned about curling strategy as opposed to racing strategy at the Casino Rama, Skins Curling Competition. Steckly was on hand for the weekend signing autographs with Mike Manno and his Tow Truck in a Box group as they were title sponsors of the event. "This is my first experience really having anything to do with curling and I see that there is a lot of strategy involved in it to. It was another great new experience for me -- maybe someday I will even take up the game."

Steckly's No. 22 Tow Truck in a Box/Erb Group Dodge Avenger will also be on display this weekend Jan. 16th to 18th at the Canadian Motorsports Expo. As the 2008 Champion, Steckly and his No. 22 car will be featured at the event which is taking place at the Toronto International Centre. Scott will be on hand to sign autographs on Saturday Jan. 17th at 4 p.m. This is the third year for the CME and it offers racers and fans alike displays, seminars, autograph sessions, interactive displays and much more.
