When Alec began racing go-karts at the young age of five, it was clear that he was a natural driver.

In 2008, he won the Rotax North American National Points Championship. He drove for Team USA in the 2009 Rotax World Finals held in Sharm El Sheik, Egypt. And in 2010 he became a Rock Island Double Champion winning the Rotax Jr. and Tag Jr. classes.

That same year, Alec began competing regionally in the NASA Spec Miata class and attended the 2010 Skip Barber Karting Shootout.

In 2011, Alec entered the professional racing scene at age 15 as the youngest licensed race driver in the history of Pirelli World Challenge Series. He competed in eight PWC races, contesting the highly-competitive GTS class where he captured the pole for Round 8 at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course.

For the 2012 season, Alec took his first GTS podium with a 3rd Place finish at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport). He finished 8th in 2012 GTS Drivers Championship.

The following year, Alec ascended to the podium again in the Pirelli World Challenge taking 3rd at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. In 2013, he had 7 top fives and finished 6th overall in the Drivers' Championship. Alec also became the NASA American Iron National Champion and competed in his first Grand-Am race.

The 2014 Pirelli World Challenge season was very competitive. Yet, even with increased car counts, Alec managed two podium finishes, and 8 top-five finishes. In addition to World Challenge, Alec tested in the RISI 458 Italia at Circuit of The Americas and competed in the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship's "Lone Star Le Mans" with Müehlner Motorsports in the Porsche 991 GT America.

Alec started the 2015 Pirelli World Challenge season off strong, with a triumphant return to Circuit of The Americas, bringing home a pair of 3rd place finishes in the season opener doubleheader in the series' debut of the GT Cup class.  By season's end, Alec had won three races, finished on the podium an incredible thirteen times, and finished fourth in the championship, despite missing a few races.

For 2016 Alec returns for his sophomore season in PWC GT Cup with support from Euroworld Motorsports and GMG.
