Chase McCormick drives the #5 Crate Late
Model Class car. His home track is Wythe Raceway but he can also
be found racing at 311 Speedway. He lives in Dobson, NC.
Team members helping Chase are:
Herb, Wilford, Brian, Bill, Clyde, Larry, Anthony. Jimmy &
Scarlett McCormick are the car owners.
Chase started racing in 2006 in the
Crate Late Model Class car because his Daddy has raced all of Chase's
life and Chase loved it. His first win was that same year.
Career highlights include first win, first Rookie of the Year, first
Point Championship in the first year he raced (2006).
The thrill of racing for Chase is the
speed and trying to control the speed. His most exciting racing
moment was his first win. He had been close for 3 weeks, winning
in his Rookie season. He's most proud of starting 23rd on his
first race and finishing 8th and not spinning out!
Chase's racing hero is his Dad, Jimmy
Of racing, Chase says, "I love it!
It is a great sport!".
