I’ve had the privilege to meet and hang out with Seth Quintero and his family a few times on my travels to the west coast. I’m sure most of you are familiar with Seth, but what about some of the crew behind-the-scenes of Team Quintero?
You know, I’m talking about the group who works the 8-5 jobs but still pulls out all the stops in the garage to make sure Seth is successful.
For the Red Bull Off-Road Junior Team member, success begins and ends in the garage with the Quintero Racing Team. It’s a grassroots, mom-and-pop, diverse group of family and friends who share the common goal of racing their way to the top of the podium every time. From his parents’ involvement, to his best friends’ involvement on the team, the Quintero’s see no different in their crew despite age, race or background.
We profiled Seth and his crew to learn more about a few key players that have helped him get to this point in his career. In a sport that is so welcoming and ever-growing, it’s refreshing to hear and see the bond that molds Team Quintero has stayed true to its roots despite the success they’ve found.
