Biography - About Chase Briscoe
Chase Briscoe is one of the hottest names to come out of the Xfinity Series ranks in some time and is the overwhelming pick for the NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year. He will step into the Stewart-Haas Racing No. 14 Mustang, the same number his boss Tony Stewart raced from 2009, when he established SHT, until his retirement. In 2016.
Chase Briscoe - Racing Career
Briscoe’s racing career started in 2001 in quarter midgets and won in his first outing. Briscoe is an accomplished sprint cup driver, and his grandfather, Richard, is a legendary sprint car owner. Briscoe was the youngest 410 cubic-inch sprint car winner in history at age 13, a mark previously held by Jeff Gordon.
By 2013, Briscoe was racing in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, making three starts with a top-ten finish. At 20, he had moved up to ARCA Menards, starting twice with top-tens in each, including a fifth at Salem Speedway. His breakout season came in 2016 when he scored six wins, 14 top-five and 18 top-ten finishes in 20 races.
Briscoe became a household name in 2020 after bursting on the scene with a monster effort, and despite failing to win the series title, his numbers were nothing short of stunning. But it was his first trip with the winner’s circle that garnered headlines.
With Kyle Busch breathing down his neck, Briscoe held him off to take the checkered flag by a mere 0.086 seconds. As he got out of his car, he fell to one knee because he learned his wife had a miscarriage with their first child just a few days before.
That victory seemed to bring out the best in Briscoe because he repeated it eight more times before the season was over. He had back to back wins at Bristol and Las Vegas as the calendar began to wind down, adding one more in the playoff finale of the Round of 8 at Kansas.
Already in the Stewart-Haas pipeline, Chase Briscoe had an exclusive contract with Ford Performance, so if he were to graduate to the Premier Series, the Blue Oval would have to be on the front of his stock car. As it turned out, Clint Bowyer was heading into retirement because NASCAR on FOX had a job for him, and the No. 14 seat was there for the taking. Stewart and Gene Haas wasted no time filling it with Briscoe.
