Whitcomb, Alex



            Alex is in the unique position of racing against, and with, his father David in nearly identical Ford Mustangs.  David has been doing this a long time and his knowledge and experience has transferred to Alex for sure.  Last year he sometimes pushed too hard, trying to collect that first win.  I think he has gained a little patience and maturity heading into his Sophomore  season in the Street StocksLook for him to collect some good finishes and improve week after week.

EVENT 1 - MERCHANTS BANK 150
MAY 1, 2011

Alex turning laps in the final practice before the season kicks off

Alex leads his father around turn three

Running well at the front of the pack, Alex's Feature came to a sudden stop when spun by another car
and collected by everyone behind him.

Although he was able to collect himself enough to drive back to the pits, Alex damn sure took a hard hit!
He was credited with a 29th Place finish.
