Alex Murray first raced a dirtbike at age three. He then went on to race Quarter Midgets from ages 5 to 12, Legends cars, Limited Late Model, USAC Midgets, and now Go-Karts at age 20. He has accumulated diverse driving experiences and has amassed many laps, primarily on asphalt, as well as many fast-times, wins, and championships. Through his racing, Alex has found a natural love of coaching youth drivers. He has also gravitated toward employment related to the automotive and motorsports industries serving as crew member for USAC .25 events, technical product specialist and car detailer at local dealerships, service technician at the family-owned service shop, track operator for K1 Speed, and parts specialist at an auto parts store.
Chris grew up working with his Dad’s amateur road racing team and raced some go-kart and SCCA races before moving to NC in pursuit of his dream to work in the NASCAR industry. Chris had a successful, 20-year career working for various NASCAR Cup teams building race-winning engines, most notably the 2001, 2003, 2004, and 2010 Daytona 500’s for Dale Earnhardt Inc. Upon retiring from NASCAR, Chris became the owner of Shamrock AutoCare, a local, full-service automotive service shop. Chris was instrumental in sparking his children’s interest in racing, first at age five in quarter midget racing for which he also built engines. Then he helped develop his son’s racing career through Legends, Late Model, USAC Midget, and now Go-Karts.
