American racer Mike Skeen is the "Ginger Stig"

Professional racecar driver and red-haired human being Mike Skeen has launched a new personal website,, on the heels of a podium performance at Pirelli World Challenge’s round in St. Petersburg in, fittingly, a bright-orange Audi R8 LMS GT3. Skeen, an exciting-to-watch racer, is well known for his ability to come up to speed quickly in any car he races, his terrier-like tenacity, and the ginger hair atop his melon.
Through his new site, the “Ginger Stig” attributed his race success to orange soda and especially generic cheese puffs:

“It’s like I have a cheese reactor in my stomach. It’s just something I was born knowing how to do.”

Skeen, who has bright orange hair, added that he’s in talks to sponsor future races like the Redheads Aren’t That Scary 250 and the Cheese Crackers Three Hours of Orange County Powered by Freckles.
[Author’s note: is, of course, an April Fool’s joke executed by some of Skeen’s racing friends. Go to for the non-April Fool’s version.]
