Team Chase Motorsports
Third cousin to legendary NASCAR owner Richard Childress, Mike Childress has made quite a name for himself in the world of off-road racing. Originally from Wrightwood, California, Childress grew up skiing and snowboarding before climbing atop a motorcycle to ride in the mountains. His enthusiasm for motorcycles eventually led him to the desert where he began competing, even winning the coveted Mint 400 in 2006 in the motorcycle division. Childress eventually made the move to trucks where his accomplishments include the title of Pikes Peak World Record Holder in ProTruck (2005); Baja 1000 win in 2005; 2006 BITD champion in the Open Pro division; and a return to the SNORE Mint 400 podium with a win in Class 1 in 2011.
