Saturday - July 21, 2001 - - - New Whiteland's Steve Prine has overcome many obstacles to realize his dream of being a race car Hearing-impaired since birth he has climbed the ranks from the Speedrome's Stock Class to the Late Model where for eight seasons he has waited for his chance to taste victory.
