Michigan’s 14-year old Chase Burda throws his hat into inaugural CRA Junior Late Model Series
Lapeer, MI- (January 29, 2019) When CRA announced their nine race 2019 Junior Late Model program Chase Burda knew this was a series that could help the teenage dirt specialist’s career get experience on an asphalt surface.
MEET CHASE BURDA
My name is Chase Burda and my father took me all the way from Michigan to South Carolina to the Darlington Raceway when I was two years old. That day I became a fan and a Kyle Busch fan…the entire race all I would say was Go M&M’s.
When I was five a local quarter midget track had a test session and we decided to see if I would like it. Since 2019 will be my 9th year as a race car driver I guess you could say we liked it…the next spring we bought a Fiser Quarter Midget and raced at Waterford Speedway every week and now my life is now filled with racing. We experienced a great deal of success in quarter midgets and in 2016 it was time to take the next step in my racing career.
