Stephens, Stout Make It Four in a Row In 2014
Area Auto Racing News
MARION (OH) – It was 14 years ago when the BioBased.US Midwest Supermodified Association (MSA) was put together and hit the pavement. And in that 14 years one team always seems to rise to the top and jump to the front. The Kasper Auto Group team owned, wrenched, and led Steve Stout. For Stout 2014 not only represents four consecutive MSA Championships, but a total of eight MSA Crowns. The first in 2001 with Pat Shullick, add three more with Dave Shullick Jr., and now, 2014, the four-peet with Trent Stephens. Running a Bodnar Chassis, re- tooled by Stout, with Kistler Racing Engines and Hoosier where the rubber meets the pavement, the Stout Team has won 53 of the 147 total MSA feature races ever ran. Do the math and it comes out to 36% of the feature events!
Said the Four-Time Championship driver, “This is awesome! I really do not know what to say about it really. Four in a row with the same team, this just goes to show how great they are. Eight total MSA Championships for this team. You just cannot be thankful enough for driving this car. They asked me to drive when I was a 20 year old punk. It just feels really good being just 26 years old and four Championships in a Supermodified. The team gets a lot of support from some great groups of people. With the support of Kasper Auto Group, Domino’s Pizza, Schaefer’s Oil, PPG, Infinite Shocks, S & S Cleaning, Destlinters Heating & Cooling, and Landrum Springs we are always really fast, winning a lot of races, hopefully it will keep going from here with this team.”
“When I first started racing I was really young, my Dad and I raced all around. I was really good at it but Dad could see my weaknesses, and we would improve on that. I just make sure I carry that all the way through with everything I love. I just cannot thank my Dad enough for teaching me that. Mom is always there taping the races so I can watch it to find out what I can do better next time. My Wife, she has been racing her whole life. Her Father is a legend in the Super’s, so it just feels good to have everyone on the same page when it comes to racing and they understand what going on,” finished Stephens.
2014 was Stephens sixth year behind the wheel of the Steve Stout led charge and if you put the team’s five checkered flag’s from this season with the others in that span of time frame, Stephens now holds 19 total MSA feature victories at the wheel of the burnt orange No. 19. Stephens and Stout, along with all the other top contenders from the MSA a group will be celebrated at their annual awards Banquet of Champions to be held on January 31, 2015. This year’s banquet will happen in Sandusky Ohio at the Caesar’s Crystal Palace.
