Alex Sedgwick will return to the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series in 2019 with Braxx Racing following a competitive first campaign in the series this year.
Sedgwick, who was the Ginetta Junior Scholarship winner for 2014 and later competed in the Renault UK Clio Cup, was the youngest driver in Euro NASCAR last season.
Competing in the Elite 1 category, Sedgwick was a regular top ten finisher and ended the year twelfth in the standings, a strong result considering he didn’t compete in every round.
For 2019, the nineteen year old is aiming to use his experience and mount a challenge for the Junior title, as well as secure a higher overall points finish.
“Signing again for Braxx Racing is a real honour and I cannot wait to work with everyone again. I will be aiming to ensure we are all where we belong, on the podium,” said Sedgwick.
“It is great to have the consistency of staying with the same team for a second year, and to know that I will have their full support and a fast car!”
Jerry De Weerdt, Team Owner of Braxx Racing, commented: “We are thrilled to have Alex on board again in 2019. He was only with Braxx Racing for four weekends but in that short time he really showed his potential.
“He adapted very quickly to the team and his professional way of communicating with the team members, be it mechanics, engineers or his spotter, combined with his speed on the track makes Alex a real asset for Braxx Racing.”
