Chase Pistone (born August 20, 1983) is an American professional stock car racing driver. Pistone is also a car builder of Legends Cars and Super Late Models.

Chase is the grandson of 2-time Sprint Cup Series race winner Tom Pistone.

Racing career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Pistone began racing at age six. He won the Summer Shootout Championship Legends four times as a driver (2 Semi-Pro, 2 Pro) between 1999 and 2005. He has over 80 feature event wins in Legends, Late Model, and USAR competition.[1]

Priot to 2014, Pistone had only run 2 races in any of NASCAR's top three touring divisions. He made one Truck start in the #07 for SS-Green Light Racing at Martinsville Speedway, finishing 35th. In 2006, Pistone returned to Martinsville for the Goody's 250 Busch race in the #32 for Braun Racing, finishing 37th after mechanical failure. He also has a top ten in his only ARCA start at Iowa Speedway in 2006.

2014[edit]

In March 2014, the now 30-year-old Pistone signed to drive the No. 9 Chevrolet Silverado of NTS Motorsports for 14 races.[2] He finished 13th in his debut in the second race of the season, also at Martinsville, where Pistone had tested earlier in the month.[3] Pistone finished a strong 9th in his next start at Gateway after qualifying 5th.[4] In his return to Iowa Speedway, he moved up from the 17th starting spot to finish 12th.[5]

Pistone also drove the No. 31 Chevrolet Camaro for Turner Scott Motorsports (the successor to Braun Racing) in the Nationwide Series in standalone oval races, while regular driver Dylan Kwasniewski takes over Kyle Larson's usual No. 42 Target car.[6] Pistone's first two Nationwide starts in 2014 have both been at Iowa Speedway where he finished 14th and 18th.[7] Pistone also drove the #31 at Kentucky Speedway in the fall.

Chase Pistone Inc[edit]

In addition to his driving career, Pistone also owns CP Inc, building Legends and Late Model stock cars, and offering leasing programs that include cars, crews, and transportation. The company also provides setup tuning, repair services, and camber cut tires. As an owner/builder, Chase has won several championships with various drivers, including grandfather Tom Pistone and former NTS Motorsports teammate Gray Gaulding.[8]
