The Driver : Brandon Aleckson
Brandon began his driving career at the age of 12, racing go-karts in the IKF series winning numerous championships and races during his 8 years of competition. At the age of 18, Brandon worked his way up to the open-wheel racing scene. After racing many years in the karting ranks, Brandon jumped into the newly developed open-wheel Formula SCCA cars in 2003. Because the Formula SCCA cars were an unproven class, they were placed in Formula Atlantic for the first 2 years of existence, proving to be no competition to the much faster Atlantic cars. Despite racing against the much more advanced Formula Atlantic cars, Brandon finished the 2004 season 2nd in points in the FA class of the San Francisco Region SCCA. 2005 was a trying year that proved difficult for Brandon and the team as they struggled with gear box problems, but still managed a 3rd place finish in the season ending FA points Championship.
2006 was a fresh start for Brandon, as it was announced the FSCCA cars would finally have their own class. Brandon immediately set the bar high, as he won an impressive 16 consecutive races while setting track records everywhere he raced en route to taking home 1st place in the FSCCA San Francisco Region SCCA Championship. The 2006 season ended with the National Championship at Road Atlanta where Brandon took 1st place in a very convincing performance. Following an impressive year in 2006, Brandon was awarded the Motor Sports Press Associations 2006 Open-Wheel Road Racer of the Year Award
In 2007, the Formula SCCA cars finally received their due as SCCA granted the class its National status under the title of Formula Enterprises (FE). Brandon won every race he entered in 2007 until an untimely run of bad-luck ended his bid for a 2nd consecutive National Championship at Road Atlanta. Brandon Aleckson Racing ended the season with 13 wins, 12 pole positions, 4 new track records, and 3 points championship titles.
2008 looked to be the most promising season yet as the FE class would be making its first appearance at the season ending SCCA National Championship Runoffs in Topeka, Kansas. Entering the Runoffs event Brandon had won 5 races and 7 pole positions in 8 races. With high hopes for a 2nd National Championship Title, the team struggled to find a setup that worked on the rough track surface relegating Brandon to a hard earned, but disappointing 3rd place finish.
