Milverton, ON – Tuesday, November 22, 2022 – Kyle Steckly is preparing to travel south to race his No. 22 APC Auto Parts Pro Late Model in the Snowflake 100 at the 55th Annual Snowball Derby on Saturday, December 3rd.
It was an intense season for Kyle Steckly racing in both the Delaware Weekly Series and the APC United Late Model Series. With 26 starts, 21 top tens, 16 top threes, and 6 wins under his belt in the 2022 season alone, Steckly is ready to make his American racing debut at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida.
“I’m really looking forward to running at the Snowball Derby in the Snowflake 100. It’s an event I have wanted to race in for a long time, it’s the biggest late model race in North America and the best of the best are going to be there so I’m excited to see how we stack up,” Steckly said.
With 56 cars registered and only 32 starting the race, this half-mile high-banked paved oval is sure to host some very tight and exciting racing!
“I’m really excited to carry the APC colours and represent them in Florida. We had great success in our first season together in Ontario, and I’m looking forward to keeping that momentum going in our biggest race yet. Without their continued support this trip would not be possible and I’m excited to keep growing our relationship,” Steckly said.
“Theetge Group is helping us get there with a couple of sets of tires. I’m really thankful for the friendship I have with Donald Theetge, he has been a big supporter of mine and I look forward to racing with him in the future,” Steckly continued.
“AW Millwrights and Caldecott Millwrights are supporting the trip as well. I’m really happy to have AW Millwrights on the car being one of the original sponsors of 22 Racing, and welcoming Caldecott Millwrights to the 22 Racing team for our trip is awesome. Cory does great things for our sport and I hope we can work together more in the future,” Kyle said.
“MBS Motorsports and Sierra Construction have also come on to support us for this race. I have created a great friendship with Dominic, Jeff, and Donny. I’m thankful for all of the support they have given me over the past year and I’m really happy to have them on the car,” Kyle said.
“A big thanks to Erb Transport for their continued support and helping us get the car all the way down to the track in Florida,” Steckly said.
Without the support and commitment from Steckly’s numerous sponsors, new and old, and the continued support from his local sponsors, this new racing venture would not be possible.
Practice will begin on Thursday, December 1st at 10am CST (11am EST) and continue on Friday, December 2nd at 10:45am CST (11:45am EST) and 2pm CST (3pm EST). Qualifying will be at 3pm CST (4pm EST) on Saturday, December 3rd. The Snowflake 100 will take place on Saturday, December 3rd at 7pm CST (8pm EST).
