Key West 2021
While attending Emory University, Carlos started driver education events with the Porsche Club of America. Following college, he went to his first racing school at Skip Barber, which led to sports car competition in both vintage and professional racing.
In 1996, he created Alegra Motorsports and has developed the team from humble roots to a powerhouse in motor sports, competing in several race series across North America and winning the 24 Hours of Daytona in 2007. Ten years later, Carlos returned to Daytona to repeat the victory, this time alongside his son and teammate, Michael. Also an avid powerboater, Carlos made the jump from leisurely boating to racing, partnering Steve Curtis in 2021 to claim the APBA Unlimited Class World Championship.
Carlos made his Class 1 race debut at Key West the following year, with legendary throttleman John Tomlinson alongside. They won the 2022 RWO Class 1 World Championship.
