Hello, I’m Alex, 18 years old from Quebec, Canada and I’m here to describe my #NutUpMoment. My passion for Racing is huge, especially for #SprintCars. I’m currently racing in the #iRacing World of Outlaws World Championship, but in August last year I had the opportunity to go real life sprint car racing because of my achievements on the simulation. Once at the track, the atmosphere is completely different and you can feel the energy that it provides. As of a rookie in real racing, going in a 305 sprint car at Castrol Raceway was quite something.After all the heats, I had to go through the B-main. I was able to make the feature after my left front shock was unclipped from the shock tower. The car was very though to drive and I wasn’t going to give up.Come feature time, I started 18th out of 20 cars and made my way through the field one car at a time to finish 6th against more powerful cars. I was awarded the hard charger for passing the most car that night.I can remember going to the green flag and everyone is lined up ready to go and you know you gotta get up on the wheel and get on the throttle. That was one of my favourite moments. As of in the race, every lap is a new challenge and when you sit in that race car, the adrenaline is turned on full speed. With all that being said, my nut up moment is when you go full on out there chasing a dream no one can see but you two feet from the wall.

I didn’t gave up and I never will. That’s what #NUAOBE is about

 

On the 29th of April 2017, I found myself in a position that I could never imagine before. A typical session turned into a catastrophic accident and a week in the hospital. Turns out, falling from 9ft above coping to your face will result in a dislocated & broken jaw, missing teeth, dislocated shoulder, bruised ribs and a concussion. Throughout my #recovery process, being in this position multiple times before, it was hard to not think about the possibilities of hanging up the #bmx bike for good. I also had plenty of time to think about all those who I look up to. That alone, with the passion we share was enough for me to continue riding and pushing myself. So now here I am just over a year later riding and enjoying each moment. Acquired a new full helmet sponsor to back my story and my habits as well. Broken bones will heal, quitting never will. Cheers

Tubing down the river with some friends we come to a great spot for a small jump or two (maybe a couple flips) of course I had to nut up and out ball em, and take it to the next level. I would say it was well over 60 foot jump into about 12 feet of of water. Needless to say no one out balled me that day, no one would jump it with me. This is the stuff I live for, adrenaline is my favorite feeling in the world. The moments where you have absolutely no time to think about anything but what you are doing at that exact moment. There is something about that exhilarating feeling that is relaxing to me.
