Youth + Race Experience = Your Best New Stunt Driver

March 21, 2023

If you're looking for a professional precision stunt driver with a CDL, more than a decade of time behind the wheel, local and international driving experience, the precision of a racer, and the youthful look of a 30-year-old, you've come to the right place.

My name is Alex Kirby, and driving is my passion. I ducked behind the wheel for my first race when I was 18 years old after a few years of vital mentorship from my dad - former racer and stunt driver Jim Kirby. His insider tips and tricks gave me my first level of confidence which has developed into a solid driving foundation. I recall the second my first gokart wheels hit the track I fell in love with the thrill of speed, accuracy, and mechanical knowledge that's essential for racing. During one early race, without knowing what the move was, I instinctively performed an 'over/under' maneuver which resulted in a race win. Nothing is planned on the race course, so I've learned to adapt to the unexpected and that's become a transferred skill with my stunt and precision driving projects.

Thanks to my decorated racing career - including recently winning the 2022 Formula Pro USA Winter Series Championship - the competitive side has taught me to be aware of my surroundings at any given moment's notice, keeping the safety of the crew and equipment as my number one priority.

Today, as a SAG precision stunt driver I have learned to leverage my driving for over two dozen commercial shoots for clients like Audi, Ford, Lexus, BMW, Toyota, Kia, Cadillac, Volvo, AutoZone, and Honda (driving the lead Formula car in their 2014 Super Bowl Evolution of Racing), as well as Netflix. I've spun cars on dry lake beds, carved up and down a two-lane mountain highway, and smashed strategically through a residential garage door in rear gear for a presently running Del Taco commercial.

My driving has included strategic maneuvers behind a moving camera car through a cornfield with zero visibility, and backing up in sync with 15 other drivers for the Honda Super Bowl spot. If you asked me to drift a truck through jungle mud, or over a glacier pack, I wouldn't hesitate. If you can get a car there, my bags are packed and I'm all in!

Having had many experiences with film crews from branded social media video content to international product launch commercials, I'm as comfortable on camera as I am behind the wheel. Whatever your shot is, smashing through a garage door backwards or leaning casually against your new luxury model for your latest commercial, I'm ready to pull double duty. I'm a licensed Class A commercial driver (Semi-truck driver? No problem!), a certified SAG driver, and one of the best precision stunt drivers you'll find anywhere!
