Canada150and150 team member and Edmonton race car driver Stefan Rzadzinski realized a lifelong dream this year when he got to represent Canada in the 2017 Race of Champions.
This is his story:
"In January 2017 I had a chance to realize a lifelong dream and compete with my heroes at a motorsports event called the Race of Champions in Miami, Florida. To get there, I had won a whirlwind Facebook competition where over 9300 people rallied for me to win my spot in the race.
Never having competed in a race at this level, going into the competition I felt like the underdog. But with 16 years of dedication and preparation, I won 2 of my 3 events and helped turn heads to put Edmonton and Canada on the map internationally.
For me, it's been an eye-opening experience that, in today's world, anyone can work their way into being in the "top tier" of their respective industries, regardless of background or upbringing. With everyone's support, I hope it's just the beginning of an incredible journey as I work to compete on the world stage in motorsports full-time."
