"I've always had back luck in this race in the past," said Steele. "I hope I can change that tomorrow. We learned a lesson last vyear when we backed up late in the race due to tire problems. We've got a good basic setup for the race, so we should have a good chance.: Steele, who also qualified third for the USAC MCI WorldCom Midget Car race, will be joined on the front row of the 30-car Silver Bullet field by Tracy Hines of New Castle, Ind., who qualified at 137.756 mph.
