Born in Speedway, Indiana, Stevie Reeves completed eight wins with Nine Racing, beginning with his 1992 win at Louisville Motor Speedway. Two more wins followed in 1992, and in 1993, he claimed victory at Bloomington Speedway, Louisville Motor Speedway, Lawrenceburg Speedway, Indianapolis Raceway Park, and Winchester Speedway. What’s more, in 1993, he was USAC National Midget Champion, giving Nine Racing its first national championship.
Stevie raced at Indiana short tracks even before entering USAC midget racing. He moved to the NASCAR Busch Series in 1994. In 1995, he collected his first pole at Bristol Motor Speedway and got his first top 10 with a sixth place finish at Richmond International Raceway.
From 1994 to 1998, he ran in the Busch Series and also made several Craftsman Truck Series starts. From there, he went back to open wheel racing. He made his first start in the Indy Racing League at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 1998 and finished 10th and drove in more IRL races in 2000. Stevie also competed in the USAC Silver Crown series in 1998.
While the two-time National Midget Champion (1992–1993) has continued racing in Silver Crown events, he has also been the “eyes in the sky” for drivers Ernie Irvan, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Robby Gordon, and Paul Menard. He is currently the spotter for Jimmie Johnson.
