Chad started racing in 1989 in the Street Stock Class at Louisville Speedway because he grew up watching his Dad, Charlie race ARCA cars and Chad enjoyed the thrill and excitement.  His first win was that same year.  Career highlights include 2001 Late Model Championships at Friendship Speedway in Elkin NC and over 25 Feature wins.

The thrill of racing for Chad is the speed and winning.  His most exciting racing moment was winning his first Late Model Feature in 2003.  He's most proud of being able to build and maintain his own cars which led to the current team he drives for.  Sandwood Racing Camden, SC.

Chad's racing heroes are Ken Schrader and Rick Mast.

Of racing, Chad says, "If you want to make a little money racing, start with a lot!".
