PEAK Auto: Between recently winning the PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge and attending medical school at the University of Miami, time must be tight. What is the driving force that keeps you motivated and coming back to the track?
Patrick Staropoli: Winning. It’s what makes me stay up until 4 am the night before a race to get the car setup just right. It’s what wakes me up the morning after a wreck and makes me start working towards the next race. And, it’s what possessed me to enter the PEAK Stock Car Dream Challenge in the first place.
