Blake Feese (born February 8, 1982), is a second generation American racecar driver. Previously he had won races in ARCA and USAC, before running the NASCAR Busch Series on a part-time schedule with Hendrick Motorsports in 2005 as part of their driver development program, before he was released.

Early career[edit]

Feese began racing at the age of ten in quarter midgets, where he won his first two starts, moving up to Mini-sprints two years later. He won the 600cc track championship at Jacksonville Raceway in the mini-sprint division in 1998, before moving up to main Sprint Cars, where he won once, and was named Rookie of the Year.

In 2000, he drove in the International Racing Association, winning three races. In 2001, he competed in his first World of Outlaws race at Bristol Motor Speedway, finishing ninth. Later, he won a WoO sanctioned event at Knoxville Raceway, then won again at the All-Star sprint at Eldora Speedway the following season.

NASCAR[edit]

Late in the season, he met NASCAR winner Jimmy Spencer, who would help Feese get a NASCAR driving contract.

After going through 2003 without a major ride, Feese met Rick Hendrick and signed to drive two races for him that season in the ARCA series. In his second start at Nashville Superspeedway, Feese qualified 3rd and won the race. After posting two more top-tens that season, he won his second career ARCA race at Talladega Superspeedway. He made his Busch Series debut at Kentucky Speedway in the No. 87 ditech Chevrolet Monte Carlo for NEMCO Motorsports, starting sixteenth but finishing 41st after an early crash. After running two more races for NEMCO, he finished the year running the No. 00 Chevy for Haas CNC Racing, posting his best finish of the year, a 25th at the Aaron's 312.

In 2005, Feese moved up to the Busch Series to share the No. 5 Lowe's Chevy with fellow Hendrick development driver Boston Reid. Feese struggled during the season however, his best finish being a 23rd at Atlanta out of six starts. He also made his Craftsman Truck Series debut at Kentucky for Billy Ballew Motorsports, starting 30th and finishing 15th.

At the end of 2005, Feese was released from his contract at Hendrick. He currently races sprint cars in Indiana and returned to stock cars in 2007, running a limited ARCA and Busch Series schedule with Sadler Brothers Racing.

Feese made his competitive return to NASCAR racing on August 1, 2009 in the No. 15 Truck for Billy Ballew Motorsports. He started 18th and finished 12th in the Phoenix Construction Toyota.
