Steele said they have been struggling a bit, but this win may be a turning point for the team. He hopes to be back on track, especially when it comes to the FASTRAK Racing Series.

During practice, Steele was not happy with his 2004 GRT and made some changes before qualifying 6th. Still not satisfied with the way his car was handling, the team made some more changes. "It's been a tough season," said Steele before the track called for a final practice session. "If my car performed as well as my K&N Filter, we would win."

Steele started the main race from the third row on the outside and quickly moved into 5th position and then up to 4th. There was a pile-up on one of the restarts and Steele moved to 3rd position. He began to press for second, but could not make the move and had to settle on third. “I feel like we won the race,” said Steele. “Now that we’re back where we need to be it’s time to win some races again.”

Steele said his car is equipped with K&N Engineering Oil and Air Filters. “The K&N Filter works great and gave us an edge over our competitors,” said Steele. “The only filters I will use are K&N Filters.”
