Matt Chaney


Matt Chaney drives the Super Pro Class Truck at Coles County Dragway.  He lives in Mattoon, IL.

Team members helping Matt are:  Juli Taber, Logan Chaney, Hunter Taber, Brooklyn Chaney. 

Matt started racing in 1991 in the Street Class at Coles County Dragway because he was born into the sport.  He lost his first race....big time!  He was driving a 1986 Iroc-z with a 350sbc motor. 

Career highlights include at CCD a few Gambler race wins and several Top 3 & 4 finishes. 

The thrill of racing for Matt is going fast and playing chess.  His most exciting racing moment was watching his Grandfather make his first 4 second 1/8 mile run at age 70!

Matt's racing heroes are "Big Daddy" and Bob Chaney.

Of racing, Matt says, "Get out on the track and get off the street!".
