Steve Chassey (born February 27, 1945, Brockton, Massachusetts), is a former driver in the CART Championship Car series. He raced in 9 seasons (1981, 1983–1989, and 1992), with 44 career starts, including the Indianapolis 500 in 1983, 1987, and 1988. He finished in the top ten 4 times, with his best finish in 5th position in 1981 at Watkins Glen International. He raced his last Indy 500 in 1988 for Gary Trout Motorsports finishing 24th.
Chassey also worked for ESPN, commentating on Thursday night "Thunder" USAC events. During a 1989 "Thunder" broadcast, Chassey and fellow announcer Larry Nuber got involved in a heated dispute over Rich Vogler which eventually caused both men to be let go by ESPN, although Chassey stayed on ESPN until he was replaced by Larry Rice in 1991.
