Fred Alkas, the Youngest of the 3 Racing Alkas Brothers, started racing at the Plainville Stadium in the early 70's.  Though not as big a winner as brother Dave, Fred won his share of races over the years.
Fred pretty much made Plainville Stadium his home track, but ventured to the Waterford Speedbowl after the closing of Plainville in the early 80's.
