Privateer Spotlight - Brett Stralo
The Privateer lifestyle is a difficult road but Brett is getting it done. The Arizona Army Veteran is chasing the dream and helping others at the same time. Brett is no exception when it comes to maintaining his own bike and building up his privateer program. During all this he still finds time to give back to those currently serving.
Brett invites combat veterans to the pits with him at races in order to help them unwind, relax and basically blow off some steam. Military service isn't easy and as a Veteran himself, Brett is helping fill some voids through motocross for our Veterans.
