16/5/1967

Born in the appropriately named town of Speedway, Indiana, Stevie Reeves  is an American racing driver.

After several seasons racing on the short oval tracks of Indiana, Reeves traveled nationally with the United States Automobile Club and wound up winning back-to-back USAC National Midget titles in 1992 for the Wilke Racers and in 1993 for legendary midget car owner Steve Lewis.

After collecting those two titles, Reeves ventured into the NASCAR Busch Grand National Series in 1994 joining Mark Thomas Racing with Clabber Girl sponsorship on the number 96 Chevrolet.

In 1995, Reeves collected his first pole at Bristol Motor Speedway and got his first top 10 with a sixth place finish at Richmond International Raceway. His career best finish in the final points standings for the Busch Series was in 1997 when he took 20th place.

Ultimately his career in the Busch Series was for the most part underwhelming. He never could hold a steady ride in his career, which lasted from 1994-1998. Reeves was employed by five different car owners in his five seasons (Mark Thomas, Ed Whitaker, Mike Curb, Donald Laird, and David Ridling).

After his stint in Busch, Reeves returned to his roots in open wheel racing in 1998. Reeves made his first start in the Indy Racing League at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina on July 25 of that year, finishing an impressive 10th for Pagan Racing. He drove three more IRL races in 2000 for Logan Racing, suffering mechanical failures in each event.

Meanwhile, Reeves returned to the USAC Silver Crown Series in 1998, wheeling the Johnny Vance/Raybestos #28 Beast.

In 2005, he drove for Dale Earnhardt, Inc. in NASCAR, as well as racing in the USAC Silver Crown Series.
