“My uncle bought me my first jr. dragster just after I was diagnosed with diabetes, when I was 10. He had a racing team called FYD—Follow Your Dreams. I am doing just that.”
The minute we arrive at the track, the racers Alex knows and the ones he doesn’t crowd around and start asking questions. Alex is happy to answer them, but he is focused on something else.
He is preparing his car to race.
Last season he won two prestigious NHRA WALLY Trophies and 1 ADRL MINUTE MAN trophy.
He was also in the World Finals, the Battle of the Belts in Ennis, TX. He was ranked 5th before the race and came in second by 100th of a second. Alex is now Ranked #2 in the World of Pro Junior Drag Racers.
