Coons Jr. to Compete on Dirt, Dave Steele on Pavement for Hoffman Racing

Hoffman Auto Racing (HAR), the winningest team in the history of USAC National Sprint Car Racing, with eight USAC National Sprint Car championships, announced recently that USAC veteran and defending USAC National Midget champion Jerry Coons Jr. will return to drive the famous No. 69 car on dirt, with USAC pavement superstar Dave Steele driving the pavement Mopar-powered sprinter.

Coons Jr., won two USAC National races for HAR in 2006, as well as the $30,000 Ultimate Challenge at Oskaloosa, Iowa. The Team Mopar driver claimed the 2006 USAC National Midget Car championship driving for Wilke-PAK, and he finished sixth in the USAC National Sprint car championship, despite competing only in dirt races. Steele, a native of Florida who has claimed two USAC Silver Crown championships, rejoins the Team Mopar fold. He claimed four USAC National Midget Car wins with Mopar power in 2003, and won the sprint car portion of the 2005 Mopar Sprint & Midget Classic with Mopar power, among his many accomplishments, while carrying the Mopar banner.
