Blake started drag racing as an eleven year old in the Junior Dragster class. Influenced by his grandfather and his dad who both raced sportsman classes from the early 60s, Blake naturally fell in love with drag racing. While in college he obtained enough sponsor support to gain his license in the alcohol dragster class with Larry Miersch based out of Huntington Beach, CA. After getting a taste of speed, going 270+ mph, he wanted more.
On his 21st birthday, Blake completed his license in NHRA Top Fuel Funny Car under the direction of Paul Smith. Blake graduated from college the next year and was a finalist for NHRA's Rookie of the Year award. For 5 years he competed with Paul Smith as his crew chief and amassed multiple semi final finishes and a runner-up finish in Charlotte 2013. Evolving with new sponsorship, Blake completed his Top Fuel Dragster license in June 2017 with Worsham-Fink Racing. Blake is now sponsored by Pronto Auto Service Centers as his primary sponsor and races in the Top Fuel Funny Car class as Team Owner of Blake Alexander Racing. Blake has won two events thus far in his career and looks to win more with Head Racing in 2021! Blake finished 11th in NHRA points in 2020.
