Stan Holt has been a long time drag racing participant and enthusiast. His passion for the sport has led to competing in their "Chick With a Stick" car at multiple regional and national races.
As the enjoyment for the sport flourished, the Holts joined forces with now professional pro stock driver, Erica Enders. Erica is a Houston native and frequent guest at The Original Lupe Tortilla Mexican Restaurants.
Shirley's Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity created to help children in need. Because our namesake, four-time world champion Shirley Muldowney, has lived her life in drag racing, our organization first seeks out deserving children within the drag racing community. Recipients may be struggling with medical issues or financial hardships brought on by a personal or family tragedy. Because of corporate support, we proudly declare that 100 percent of all proceeds raised go directly to the designated children.
In March, 2016, they kicked off Shirley's Kids charity by helping a Florida boy.

"Stan has always been a part of racing and my personal life for as long as I can remember," Enders-Stevens said. "He has always been there for me, and I consider him and Sheila part of my family. Stan even performed the wedding ceremony when Richie and I got married." [ARTICLE LINK]
