Like many of us as youngsters, Alba Colon had dreams of being an astronaut and going into space. Having become a mechanical engineer, she was a lot closer to achieving that dream than most of us. However, space travel didn’t end up becoming Alba’s reality. If you can’t go to space, you might as well do the next best thing – work within auto racing.
Alba spent more than 20 years working General Motors before recently coming to work for Hendrick Motorsports as its Director of Competition Systems.
