Two of Andrew's favorite racing memories to date are riding the wall at Americas Motorsports Park in his uncle Jim's car and winning his first race. He chose his number because both uncle Jim and cousin Dylan each have a 2 in their car number.

Steve Collins drives the J&J Chassis, Don Ott powered #67 360 Sprint Car, Steve Collins.
Steve hails from BelFAST, New York. Not sure how the local chamber of commerce spells it out but the racer in Steve won’t allow him to write it in small letters.
Dr. Collins, as he’s known outside the racecar has been a practicing physician for 13 years. Prior to that he was an auto mechanic for General Motors. Steve obviously has a passion for fixing things.
Steve’s career in racing started almost 30 years ago when his mechanical ability got him a position as a crew chief. Since then he's served over 25 years as a crew chief on sprint cars, late models and modifieds.
In 2011 he got his first opportunity to strap into the drivers seat as a 43-year-old rookie in the 360-sprint car division. His 4th race out he won the dash in a Patriot Sprint Tour event and was the series Rookie of the Year for 2011. Not a bad way to start out your career.
Steve chose the #67 for his wing panels based on the year he was born.
Finding time and people to work on the car during the week to prep the car is the hardest thing for Steve and his team. His crew, while few, work hard with the time they have and it’s definitely appreciated.
Steve’s favorite part of racing is running “Wide Open” and he really likes tracks with traction, high banks and speed. Is it any wonder he makes the near 200 mile 4 hour tow to Selinsgrove Speedway where they have “just what the doctor ordered!!” He’s also a big fan of Raceway 7 in Conneaut, OH.
When not twisting the wheel or tending to patients Steve likes to hunt, especially during archery season, and ride snowmobile.
