"We had some good finishes at Atomic Motor Speedway for the WoO weekend, and we are still off to a great start this season," states Steve. "Our car was not the best but it was not that bad this weekend considering Atomic is a track that I have struggled at over the past few years, so I am very pleased with our finishes," concluded Steve.
