Get to Know Alex and Will
In their inaugural episode, Alex and Will tell you how they got started in the hobby. Will recalled racing since he was three, starting with go-karts and graduating to 1/18-scale r/c cars when he was 11 years old.
“I was the kid with the fast reflexes and didn’t have a very good car. And now I’m the older guy with a really good car and I’m getting beat by the kids with the fast reflexes,” Will jokingly said.
Alex began racing as a kid in the 80s. Eventually, he started working at the HobbyPlex in 2004, continuously working towards building great off-road tracks. That same year he also placed second in the Stock Nats.
“I got hired at the Plex and part of my deal was, I was going to get an off-road track going! So we built the off-road track in 2005 and it blossomed from there. We moved it in ‘07 to its current location, put the roof on it in 2011. It’s been a monster ever since,” Alex described, adding that it is still exciting to come up with layout ideas for the races.

While moving on to talk about the latest hobby news, Alex and Will reflect on their fond memories of Chazz Sinclair, founder of X-Factory, who passed away recently.
