Throughout his OSCAAR Hot Rod career, Steve Book has been one of the most consistent competitors as evident by scoring 34 consecutive top-10’s, dating back to Sunset Speedway in May 2018.
The strong runs paid off in a big way for Book in 2021 as he was crowned the series champion.
“I was most impressed with my 2021 season with being able to pull off two victories in a series that had 9 different feature winners,” he commented. “This division is incredibly competitive and wins are hard to get.”
Now going into 2022, he hopes to repeat the success by running in the top-five at each track on the calendar, and scoring a feature victory. He notes it will be critical “to prepare the car better to give us the best chance for strong runs.”
Looking at the schedule, the driver of the Studebaker Hawk has circled the couple trips to Delaware Speedway on his calendar as “the improvements being made will only add to a great facility.”
For Book, he has been involved in racing since a young age, going to various local tracks to watch his father and other drivers compete. With having spent the past couple years with the Hot Rods, he says the best part is the staff.
“I think the best part is the fact that all of the staff have been very approachable and deal with any situation without any ego,” he shared. “They treat everyone with respect and try to come to an understanding that makes sense to all involved.”
With having been behind the wheel for almost 35 years now, he hopes to remain involved for more to come.
“OSCAAR came up with a really cool retro class to showcase old classics cars – who wouldn’t love this class?”
