As the UK moved towards a second lockdown last week, Alex packed his bags and flew to the United States to compete as part of NASCAR's Championship Weekend at Phoenix Raceway.
A dream he has held for a long time, Alex started this journey when he was invited by NASCAR to attend as their guest at the Daytona 500 in February.
With the world suddenly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, his plans to go to the U.S. to race looked like they would have to be put on hold. Then NASCAR had to postpone its planned races from March until it could restart in May as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S.
Having raced for two years in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, the next step up the NASCAR racing ladder was to race in the U.S. in the ARCA Menards Series West.
After a number of opportunities had to be cancelled due to the ever-increasing challenges brought about by COVID-19, Alex got the news he had waited for. He would be able to contest the final round of the 2020 season in Phoenix on the 7th of November.
So far, Alex has ten years of experience in Motorsport. This includes, becoming the 2011 British LGM WTP Cadet Champion, and winning the 2014 Ginetta Junior Scholarship. He is currently competing in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series for Braxx Racing
