My sincere condolences to the Stapp family. Bopper welcomed me into the racing world back when Mini-Sprint racing 1st started. The whole family helped me during the growing years. I wear BIBS daily and the BOPPER was my inspiration. If it is OK for the Bopper then it's OK for me. Rest in Peace my friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

R.I.P. Bopper, the Friday night get together held on the second floor of the NSCHoF&M during Induction weekend for the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame will never be the same !!! Pairing you with Lynn Paxton to co- monitor the " open microphone " session with past inductees was a winning move. The stories came fast & furiously and were always very enjoyable. You always held steady supporting USAC racing while Lynn touted outlaw racing especially the PA racers-- GREAT FUN for all who attended. I always looked forward to the arrival in Knoxville of your passenger vehicle because the fun began when you and Rosemary arrived at the NSCHoF&M with some new stories or retelling of previous great yarns. Steve, you were one of a kind great guy and you'll long be known and respected for being the only NSCHoF inductee that has his " britches " on display in the museum. Respectfully, Larry Janicsek Pewaukee, WI
