It was particularly gratifying as a racing organization to create a five-year expanded relationship with their organization.”

“We have enjoyed our affiliation with the Series since 2010,” said Steve Ruiz, director of engineering, StopTech. “At StopTech we are proud of our commitment to being the best in high performance brake systems.
