Career[edit]

Steckly's car in 2009

Since the formation of the Canadian Tire Series he has won seven times, four times in 2008 (Cayuga, Barrie, St. Eustache and Barrie 2) and once in the final race of 2007 (Kawartha) on his way to becoming the 2008 Series Champion.[2] His championship made him eligible to compete in the 2008 Toyota All-Star Showdown,[3] but he was taken out in a wreck early and finished 38th of 40 cars in the event.[4] Steckly also made his Nationwide Series debut during 2008 in the NAPA Auto Parts 200 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, start-and-parking for MSRP Motorsports.[5]

Steckly started off the 2009 season solid getting a win in the 3rd race at St. Eustache Tide 250 leading 39 of the final 40 laps as well as the first ever race at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway. The veteran's car overturned at Montreal after being hit by another car at turn three. It flipped once fully, then rolled to its roof, coming to a stop upside-down, back end high in the air. He was unhurt.

In 2010, he picked up the win at MOTOPLEX Speedway after a late race pass on DJ Kennington and finished 3rd in points. He started off the 2011 year with a dominating performance with his Erb Racing team winning the first event at Mosport International Raceway

In 2011, he won the season opening event Mostport and the events at MOTOPLEX and Riverside on his way to win his second series championship;[6] after finishing fourth in 2012, he returned to win four races on his way to winning the 2013 season championship by two points over D. J. Kennington.[7]
