Alex Rodriguez is a successful business owner, metal fabricator, welder and racer.
Graduate Alex Rodriguez came to The Fab School to learn more about fabrication in the racing industry. After a friend recommended The Fab School Alex came to check it out and knew that it was the right fit because, “Out of all welding schools I looked at The Fab School was the only one to specialize in the fabrication side of things, which is what I really enjoy and where I want to build my career.”
After completing our Fundamentals of Fabrication program at The Fab School Alex has opened up his own business, Alex Rodriguez Motorsports. We are a full time fabrication and dyno shop with parts sales, also importing Japanese vehicles and parts. “I am living my dream! To have my own shop, a business that I can call my own and set my tempo is where I want to be. I am doing what I love. I don’t consider it a job since it’s fun and it’s my hobby; sure it pays the bulls but if I didn’t choose this path I would have been on the boring path after the military.
Alex filled us in on what he has going on after graduation:
“When I’m not fabricating on other peoples hot rods, I am behind the wheel of my own race car. I am an 11 year Marine Corps Combat Veteran who spent the last 6 years road racing and time attack around Southern California. Before that I was drifting in Japan for three years and have been drag racing since I was 15 years old. Growing up I had a track 400 yards from my house, so I spent countless hours out there. I have always been passionate about cars, growing up in a family of old school muscle cars and vintage toyotas I was destined to carry on my family’s legacy. I enjoy carrying on my family’s passion for the industry to my wife and daughter.
Today I have a successful race program, a full fabrication shop with TIG and MIG welding as well as fabrication and custom imports. I also have my personalDynojet 224x dyno meter. In my shop I have a small showroom where parts are sold and customers can lounge. My other business is importing cars and parts from Japan. I fly out frequently to buy cars and load parts for customers abroad the US. Currently I have a fleet of fun cars. 1993 Mazda Rx7 Time Attack, 1989 Nissan Skyline GTR, 1995 Mazda RX7 Drift car, 1993 Mazda Miata road race spec car, 1986 Toyota Ae86 drift car, 1998 Toyota Chaser 2017 Top-drift build, and a badass 2005 F250 6.0 on 35s and 6″ lift that likes to break a lot but I love it.”
“My future goal is to build a empire for me and my family to move to Texas and retire early while having the a full out shop in my backyard and go racing when I want. I made it this far I can make that happen too.”
