"2010 was a pinnacle season for Chase Motorsports. Their first season in the big leagues (BITD) Don Chase and his son Travis Chase accomplished all three goals they set for the team. 1- Finish every mile of every race. 2-Finish top 5 in year end points. 3-Win Rookie of The Year. They added a bonus by finishing 2nd in class and 5th overall at the last race of the year, Henderson. None of these would have been possible without our great group of La Crescenta volunteers. This crew works tirelessly throughout the year because DNF is not in their vocabulary. Don started racing back in 1983 with Bob Stockton. They raced until 1995 with great success. In 2005 Travis, who was racing motorcycles at the time, convinced pops they should dust off the old 1600 and go racing for pop's birthday. Friends and family came out and Chase Motorsports was born. After racing just a few races a year, Don recognized Travis' talent in the HP prerunners and decided to move up to class 1500 for 2010. There is no question that the old guy can't keep pace with Travis but it is a father son team first. The key ideals that make Chase Motorsports are; to work hard, play harder and keep your family and friends close. After all that is what life is all about. Travis and his wife Andrea will be adding their second son to the offroad community on January 31st. Watch for these kids ripping up the desert near you in the future."
