Career before NASCAR[edit]

Montgomery began racing go-karts at the age of 13. He began rising through the ranks very quickly and by 2000, he was a regular weekly driver at Nashville Speedway USA. In 2002, he joined the ARCA RE/MAX Series, posting four top-fives and finishing 4th in points, runner-up in the Rookie of the Year points. That year, rock singer Alice Cooper came on board as a co-owner and marketing partner of his race team. The next season, he won the season opening-race at Daytona International Speedway. In 2004, he became the youngest driver to win the pole for an ARCA race.

NASCAR career[edit]

Chase began his NASCAR career in 2003 with 15 starts in the Busch Series with Brewco Motorsports, posting a top-ten in his series debut at the Koolerz 300. After that season came to a close, he signed to drive the #8 Dodge for Bobby Hamilton Racing. He finished 21st in points that year, and 23rd in 2005 in the #18. In 2006, he was to drive part-time for Curry Racing, however, after finishing the season opener at Daytona 19th, the deal fell through and Montgomery left the team.
