Here at Stidham Racing, we’ve said time and time again that we wouldn’t have had nearly the level of success we’ve had for so long without the incredible work put in by our tremendous team of staff.
And so, we’ve decided it’s time that you, our loyal supporters, got to know the folks toiling tirelessly behind the scenes.
To do this, we thought it would be cool to put the team through a Q&A as a “getting to know you” exercise. And our first victim is the one of the stable backbones, Alfredo Alvarado!
