DALLAS -- The late Steve Engel, the popular Pro Mod racer who lost his life Sunday in Indianapolis, will be remembered and honored by his fellow racers on the JEGS ProMod Challenge beginning this weekend with memorial stickers on all of the racecars participating in the series.

Fellow racer Tim Tindle had the stickers designed and distributed in time for this weekend's 23rd annual O'Reilly Super Start Batteries NHRA Nationals at the Texas Motorplex. It is the eighth of 10 races on the JEGS ProMod Challenge and the first since Engel's death.

Engel was severely injured during qualifying for the 54th annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals over Labor Day weekend. He was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis and diagnosed with six broken vertebrae, which were all repaired. He was in the throws of recovery when he passed away at the age of 49. Engel is survived by his wife Tonya and sons Stevie and Michael.

At 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Racers For Christ Chaplain Larry Smiley will be holding a special memorial service for Engel at the Racers For Christ tent on the west side of the staging lanes at the Texas Motorplex. The service is open to the public.
