Wisconsin native Alex Martinez is passionate about cars. Martinez was raised in Eau Claire and had no experience within the automotive scene. Starting by attending local meets with his older brother, he began to see a major issues in the scene; respect. Alex blames his automotive obsession on his friends who always pushed him to try new things. As the idea blossomed into Wisconsin Car Enthusiast Club, Alex immediately began bringing together a team. As of December 2016, Wisconsin Car Enthusiast Club, or WCEC for short, has over 14 Administrators, 40 volunteers, and 40,000 members.
