As a fifth-generation race car driver, he has carried on the family's legacy by pursuing his passion for racing from an early age. At the age of 12, he began racing go-karts in Miami and later progressed to racing cars with his father, Alberto De las Casas, in the SCCA in ITA with RX-7s when he turned 19.
In 2007, when FARA was founded by Tico Almeida, Jose played an instrumental role in its development. He joined Tico and contributed to the website, ultimately becoming the "WEBon" master. Jose has remained an integral part of FARA ever since and has recently taken over to carry forward Tico Almeida's vision of creating a local racing series in South Florida that caters to families and race enthusiasts from all walks of life.
