What separates Chase far from all other drivers in the world is his story. Chase's story begins on March 16, 2013 which was his families teams opening night of the 2013 season. In the first practice session of the night, the steering wheel in his sprint car malfunctioned causing him to lose control of the vehicle. He crashed, uncontrollably out the exit gate of the race track and his car struck and killed his 14 year old cousin Marcus Johnson and another gentleman, Dale Wondergem Jr. who was a 68 year old car owner. After the accident he was absent in all of motorsports. After many
long months he made one tough and courages decision to return to racing. He chose to race in honor of those lost in the accident, Marcus and Dale. He now strives to be successful as a racer but also be a strong inspiration to anyone that might have a tough time overcoming a difficulty in their life.
Outside of his racing Chase is a proud part of the Big Al Kids and Motorsports Foundation which brings drivers like himself to visit sick and ill children at children hospitals across the country. He also competes in Kick-It for Kids Cancer kick ball games at large racing events across the country. In the off season months he is a promoter and founder of the Winter Outlaw Challenge Series which is a traveling Outlaw Kart series in the state of California. The sport of racing has formed Chase for who he is today and these are ways of how he feels to choose to give back to the sport that has helped him in so many ways.
Chase Dominic Johnson fell in love with the sport of racing at the age of the 5 in the Outlaw Kart ranks where he quickly progressed and made the step into a sprint car at age 14.
