Mark Coldren doesn't have the free time to race a Sprint Car every week. It's too much effort with all of his commitments. His professional and personal life have changed. Water Treatment by Design — Coldren's business — is booming. On the home front, he has two new additions to the family in the form of twins.
But that doesn't mean Coldren's passion for the sport has waned. In fact, it's as strong as ever, which is why he wants to continue as an owner and dabble behind the wheel of a second entry when he so desires. Coldren started his search for a driver last season. He found what he was looking for in Steve Buckwalter.
