NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas – After testing in the open wheel formula car ranks late in 2014, New Braunfels, Texas driver Parker Chase is set to start his move up the motorsports ladder.
Inking a deal this week with Jay Howard and his Motorsports Driver Development program and Chastain Motorsports, Chase will see action in the F1600 Formula F Championship Series as well as national level karting throughout North America in 2015.
” This is exciting times for Parker, making the transition to cars is a dream come true for anyone in racing,” said Jay Howard, as the duo prepares for the upcoming Florida Winter Tour.
“Parker is a driver with loads of talent and support behind his efforts, and he and his father are approaching the move to cars with an unparalleled effort. Showing the commitment to join forces with my coaching and management company as well as with a qualified team in F1600 while still competing in the highest level of karting in North America, Chase will be a threat in 2015 and beyond.”
Set to take on the F1600 Formula F Championship Series, Chase will also compete in the 2015 Florida Winter Tour (FWT) ROK and Rotax weekends, Cold Stone Rotax Grand Nationals, Cold Stone Rotax Pan American Challenge and the SuperKarts! USA (SKUSA) Pro Tour.
“I am ready to get the season started,” said Chase. “Working with a coach such as Jay Howard and Chastain Motorsports is exciting.”
His season will start in early January at the Florida Winter Tour ROK Cup USA program where he will compete in the ROK Junior class over the Jan. 16-18 weekend at the Homestead Karting facility at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
