Al Alvarado and the Alvarado Mechanical crew began racing in 2010, the year the shop opened for business. We started racing enduros at Riverhead Raceway with a 1999 Toyota Tercel and now have 6 cars participating in the 4&6 and 8 cylinder races on weekends throughout the summer season. Team Alvarado has also participated in the "24 Hours of LeMons” at New Jersey Motorsports Park and Monticello, New York. If you see the shop lights on late at night you can bet we are busy getting the cars ready for the next big race!
We are also proud sponsors of the Busy Bee Racing Team, with our friend and fellow racer James White Jr. of Busy Bee Pest Control behind the wheel. James races several cars in 4 different divisions at Riverhead Raceway. He’s taken home 3 wins for the Grand Enduro, 3 Wins for the Blunderbust, and 3 wins for the demolition derby in the 2014 season so far. Alvarado Mechanical also repairs and maintains all of the cars for Busy Bee Racing team.
If you're interested in checking us out at the races, just contact the shop or visit the Riverhead Raceway Website for directions and scheduled races.
