Alex. Made this for my Disney's Pixar Cars fanatic friend
Kelsey writes a lot of Cars fan fiction and here is her write up about her original character...
"In 1972, he joined an illegal street racing team with a '69 Mustang named Brett (AKA "Gunner"); they quickly became best friends, bonded by the thrill of racing, and remained teammates until 1978, up until Alex crashed and had an extended hospital stay. Horrified by the fact that Brett had abandoned him at the scene of his crash, Alex ended his friendship with Brett (and his position with the racing team) when he woke up in the hospital, accusing the car of confusing his priorities.
When he was finally released from the hospital several months later, Alex's views of the racing world were jaded and he felt that his racing career was over; he felt out-dated, and he couldn't bring himself to try and start over with something else.
Despite his internal conflicts of struggling to find a purpose and trying to adjust to a life not consumed around racing, he was able to realize that he had fallen for the pretty all-white coupe nurse behind the front desk of the hospital. He took the chance of starting over with her, and by the end of 1979 they were married.
Officially retired from racing, Alex now works at the South Carolina Racing Headquarters as staff and his wife Natalie continues her job at the local hospital."
