Steve Alexander Serves as Series Chaplain



Mark Moore presented Steve Alexander with a bible embossed with words of appreciation at Duck River Speedway on July 13th, 2013.  At the beginning of this season Steve agreed to officially serve as KVRA's Series Chaplain.  He leads the drivers in prayer before each race, provides the devotional, and is always available to the drivers for counsel and advice.  We're truly thankful and blessed for his contribution both on and off the track.
