Maybe Axel was destined for Reno racing all along. He soloed at 16, earned the ol' Private at 17, Instrument at 18 and Commercial at 19. Then he earned an Aerospace Engineering degree from the University of Tennessee, and also graduated from the Navy's Test Pilot School (as a civilian). When not racing, he enjoys flocking with the West Coast Ravens formation team.
