When Steve David joined Miss Madison Racing 12 years ago, he made a promise to his new team and its fans that he would do everything in his power to turn the lovable - but losing - program into a winner.

"I have a deep-held belief the good folks of Madison, Indiana, know that beneath the deck of their boat is a winner just waiting to be released," David said in April of 2001. "I'm committed to driving the best I've ever driven and giving 100 percent of everything possible to my team."
