Steven Otto Krauss fell in love with cars and speed at an early age. He started racing Big Wheels at age 4 before moving on to unicycles. He dominated in Atari's Night Driver and moved on from there. As time passed, he earned several wins in NASCAR for Xbox 360. Otto still holds all the course records in all available vehicles on Sega's Rally. In August of 2011, he drove his Saleen at Waterford Hills Raceway and was hooked. He successfully completed the driver's school and earned his Novice License in May of 2012.
In October of 2011, he purchased his first race car. With help from friends and family, the pieces fell into place. Shortly thereafter, Otto Motorsports was formed. This year marks Otto Motorsports first attempt to run a whole race season.
Otto does not like to talk about his modeling career but sacrifices were made to fund the race team. Look for him locally in clickondetroit.com's "Stranger Danger" ads. He is most proud of his national print ad that can be seen in airports everywhere, "How to identify a terrorist."
Otto has no problem giving til it hurts. He freely gives hugs to most Hooters greeters and bikini clad hot dog sellers. He can be found on most weekend nights giving cash to single mothers and female law students (so what if it is only a dollar bill at a time).
