CEO of the UCR Group, Stephen Reeder is an experienced developer of residential multi-family units. Stephen Reeder has attended the Skip Barber School of Racing, a well-recognized racing school responsible for training multiple professional racers. One Skip Barber student, Alexander Rossi, recently won the 2016 Indy 500.

Held in May, the 2016 Indy 500 was the historic 100th anniversary of the race. Four of the first five finishing spots were held by Skip Barber Racing School alumni. Alexander Rossi is the school’s fourth consecutive winner in the Indy 500. Rossi first entered the racing school to compete in and win the school’s 2006 Karts to Cars Scholarship Shootout, a program designed to help racers transition from racing karts, to cars. Former Karts to Cars winners and Skip Barber alumni include famous racers such as Marco Andretti, A.J. Allmendinger and Ryan Hunter-Reay.

Founded in 1975, The Skip Barber racing school educates students on more than racing, with students also gaining media exposure, financial awards and potentially racing scholarships. For more information, visit www.skipbarber.com.
