    Biography

    Scott Stenzel

    Scott was born July 28, 1980 and lived in a rural farming community in the southern part of Minnesota. Before he was old enough to drive he would drive anything he could get his hands on. Everything from four-wheelers, go-karts, dirt bikes, and even junk yard cars. In 1999-2000 he raced in the FASCAR Enduro Series at I-94 Raceway and Fergus Falls Raceway.

    From 2001-2007 Scott graduated college and started up his own multimedia company. He constantly pursued a career in racing but never had the funding to be able to run full time. In 2006 he met Charlie Patterson who took him in under his wing as a driver coach and mentor.

    In 2007 Scott tested for Bob Schacht Motorsports in the ARCA series. He was 13th quick out of 75 drivers at the test. It took Scott another three years to get the funding together and in 2010 Scott purchased his own equipment from the Wood Bros. and partnered with Roush Yates Engines and Spraker Racing Enterprises to race in the ARCA series.

    In 2010 he finished 7th at Talladega in the ARCA series with the help of Roush Yates Engines and Spraker Racing Enterprises. During the same year he also drove the #37 Spraker Racing Chevy Monte Carlo in the NASCAR K&N Series.

    In 2011 he partnered back up with Roush Yates Engines and Spraker Racing Enterprises to run the ARCA Daytona race. During the test he was 3rd quick and showed a lot of speed. During the race he was within the top ten up until the last few laps when a loose lug nut forced him to pit and lose all his track position, he ultimately finished 23rd unscathed.

    Later in 2011 he got his big break and raced the #63 truck for Mike Mittler of MB Motorsports. Over the next three years Mike and Scott raced several NASCAR races and built a long-lasting relationship. Scott’s best performance was at Talladega where the MB Motorsports made their inaugural start and he raced from last to top 5 several times, and showed a lot of speed and avoided several “big ones.” Unfortunately his day ended with 7 laps to go while he was battling in the top 10.

    Scott continuously works on his race craft racing on several simulator platforms, including rFactor and iRacing.

    "I have sincerely been blessed with the opportunities I have had in motorsports. It has allowed me to live my passion and my dream of being a professional race car driver."
