A Win on Sunday at “The Glen” and Third
Overall Boosts the Spirits of Steve Fox
PA (9/10/2013)- Following a disappointing weekend in the ARCA
Racing Series, presented by Menards a month ago, Steve Fox of
Hazelton, PA was determined to hit the track once more. He also
had high wishes of a strong finish heading into last weekend’s
Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) events at Watkins
Glen and his wishes came true when he scored great finishes all
weekend, including a divisional win.
Running a car that was formerly driven by Matt Kenseth, Fox took
the Jim Peruto owned machine to a third place divisional finish
and ninth place overall finish on Saturday. He backed up that
feat with an impressive divisional win and third overall, which
was obviously an ego boost after such a disappointing season
thus far. The greatest aspect of the weekend was that prior to
the, Fox had never turned one single lap around “The Glen”.
“What a great car”, said Fox after the events.
“Thanks to Jim Peruto and the folks at Watkins Glen for such a
great time. It’s such a beautiful facility.”
“The place (Watkins Glen) is amazingly fast and to run it in
this 800 HP Nationwide car after disaster at Pocono was
absolutely awesome. It felt good to win and be on the podium and
I can’t wait to do it all over again.”
The next SVRA event for Fox will take place at Salem on
September 14. He is also slated to run the Kansas ARCA Racing
Series event for Wayne Hixson on October 4.
AIRSHOW: LAND VS. AIR
Lehigh Valley, PA-The Sands Lehigh Valley Airshow,
presented by Service Electric, will offer a unique opportunity
to watch not one, but two different land vs. air races!
Racing against Matt Chapman from the 4CE will be
the Steve Fox in the
2013 Impala SS NASCAR Sprint
Cup-style stock car and the 2013 Camaro SS Pocono Raceway Pace
Impala SS has a top speed of 170 MPH”, said Chief
Instructor/General Manager of the Pocono Stockcar Racing
Experience, Steve Fox. “I hope it can keep up”.
Steve has a vast
and varied racing background. He currently competes in the SCCA,
SVRA and ARCA series. Before his current schedule of ovals and
road courses on four wheels he started out on motorcycles and
snowmobiles, this will be his first race against an airplane!
Racing against the all-electric Brammo
Empulse R motorcycle will be
Billy Segalla from the Iron Eagles. The motorcycle is from
Eurosports in Coopersburg and will be driven by Shelina Moreda.
Moreda is the first
female to have raced a motorcycle at Indy Raceway and the only
female to be racing in the AMA Pro Harley class. Shelina races
professionally in both the United States and Europe and is one
of only four females racing motorcycles at the National level in
the United States.
Both aircraft will approach the starting line from the air. The
car and the motorcycle will get the word to start, and in both
separate cases, its full throttle to see who finishes faster!
“These two particular races are two in which you won’t often
have the opportunity to see. It is exciting to be able to
couple the thrill of flying with the thrill of racing. What
better way to do that than with the electric Brammo bike and the
Pocono Raceway stock car at the Lehigh Valley Airshow”, said
Charles Everett, Executive Director of the Lehigh-Northampton
Pocono Stockcar Racing Experience has donated two prizes for the
airshow! Included in prize #1 will be a 3 Lap Ride from StockCar

at the Lehigh Valley Airshow, or your chance at winning a grand
prize from Pocono Raceway!
Unfair to Steve Fox in 2013
Berwick, PA (August 5, 2013)- Heading into the Modspace 125 for the ARCA Racing Series, presented by Menards at Pocono International raceway, Steve Fox entered last weekend confident and determined to have a great run. After all, he and his race team purposely missed the first Pocono event to add final touches on his #3 A&N’s Motorsports Heaven Dodge Charger. Despite all of the set up modifications and a freshly rebuilt power plant under the hood, Fox’s big race ended before it even started, when his engine expired during practice, prior to the start of the race. “It’s a huge disappointment”, note Fox when asked about last Friday’s race. “The team and I were so excited about this race. We put so much time into the car, with a new set up, fresh motor and a new sponsor (A&N’s Motorsports Heaven). It stinks, but unfortunately, that’s how this year has gone, so we’ll pick up the pieces and take it from there. Hopefully the engine isn’t hurt really bad, but we’ll have to tear it down and see.” Fox’s future plans revolve around the status of his engine, which is the only competitive motor in the Universe racing stable. Dejected yet optimistic, Fox is grateful for the great support that he has. “Despite our non-showing at Pocono this season, there are so many people that I want to thank. The main guy is Tony Aquilino. Without him Universe racing wouldn’t exist and I know that he’s disappointed, but he also understands that it’s all part of the game.” Fox Content with NJMP Finish; Ready for Modspace 125 at Pocono
Berwick, PA (July 28, 2013)- Following a decent 19th place qualifying effort Saturday for the Barbera’s Autoland 150 presented by Driven racing Oil at New Jersey Motorsports Park, Steve Fox of Hazelton, PA suffered brake issue and still salvaged a 24th place effort in the Wayne Peterson owned #0. It was Fox’s first start of the season in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and he’ll be back in the #3 A & N's Motorsports Heaven Dodge Charger for next weekend’s Modspace 125 event at Pocono. “I really have to thank Wayne Peterson and his bunch for giving me this opportunity”, said Fox. “Despite being a super speedway car with minor changes for the road course, it was a lot of fun and the car was good. It’s too bad that the brakes went out, but the seat time will help a lot and I’m ready to get back behind the wheel next weekend. We’ve made a lot of improvements and changes to that car and I’m hoping for big things in the Modspace 125 at Pocono.” Fox will be signing autographs at the A & N's Motorsports Heaven booth at Pocono Raceway on August 2nd from 11:00 to 11:30 AM and a lucky fan in attendance will have a shot at winning a ride with Fox in a real Stockcar at the StockCar Racing Experience at Pocono Raceway. Also, the no. 3 ARCA racecar will be on display at their booth at Pocono on August 3rd and 4th. Qualifying for the Modspace 125 at Pocono is slated for 1:15 PM on Friday, August 2 and the Modspace 125 will kick off on the same day at 5:15 PM. The event will air LIVE on Speed at 5 PM.
