FBC Downshift- Alex Schutte

I had the pleasure of speaking with Alex Schutte on his racing career which went from American road racing to NASCAR and oval racing when he reached a fork in the road.

Why did he make the decision he made? You’ll have to listen to find out but suffice it to say, Alex shares what had to change in his driving style, what the new series has taught him and what road racing skills serve him best in his new endeavor.

Alex is, like most of our friends at Simraceway, an incredibly delightful guy to speak with. There’s no doubt he knows how to hustle a car and I think you’re going to welcome Alex to our current friends, TJ Fischer, Jeff Westphal and Matt Bell as we follow his career very closely.
