2018 still has a few weeks still to go, but Alex is already focusing on 2019 with the confirmation that he has signed to return with Braxx Racing.
As the youngest driver in the 2018 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series Elite 1 category in 2018, Alex is likely to again be the youngest driver as he will have just turned twenty when the series kicks off in Valencia, in April.
2019 will see Alex contest every round for Braxx and, pitch himself again against the best Euro NASCAR drivers in the 'pro' Elite 1 category, aiming for the Junior title and a top overall finish.
A strong 12th place overall, despite a tough year in 2018 provided an indication of Alex’s speed and talent as he achieved this without actually completing all the rounds. As a regular top ten finisher, had he completed all the rounds in 2018, based on his average finishing position, he would have secured at least a 6th place finish overall. Not a bad result for a nineteen year old who, before the start of the season had never raced a NASCAR before, unlike the majority of the other drivers in the series.
Jerry De Weerdt, Team Owner of Braxx Racing Says: "We are thrilled to have Alex on board again in 2019. He was only with Braxx Racing for the last four weekends of the 2018 season but in that short time he really showed his potential. He adapted very quickly to the team and his professional way of communicating with the team members, be it mechanics, engineers or his spotter, combined with his speed on the track makes Alex a real asset for Braxx Racing, we look forward to seeing him at work again in our #90 Camaro"
“Signing again for Braxx Racing is a real honour and I cannot wait to work with everyone again. As one of the most professional and knowledgable teams I have ever worked with it is great to first of all have the consistency of staying with the same team for a second year, but also, I know that I will have their full support and a fast car! I will be aiming to ensure we are all where we belong, on the podium,” commented Alex.
