MEET THE OWNER

Steven Chunn is a third-generation racer who can trace his Middle Tennessee roots all the way back to the American Revolution. Born and raised on the same ground granted to his ancestors by a fledgling United States Government seven generations prior, Steven was bitten by the racing bug at age 4 in a yard kart with (thankfully) a remote-controlled kill switch held by his dad. He was not one to shy away from mixing it up with his older brother OR a closed garage door. 

He began iRacing in 2018 and quickly progressed to an Oval “A” license. He spent part of 2019 participating in iRacing’s “Road To Pro” series in pursuit of the top iRacing license but ultimately chose actual asphalt short-track racing over simulation. Revamping and updating cars previously driven as Super Late Models by his dad in the 2000s, Steven made his Pro Late Model debut in a Lefthander car built in 2004 (the same year he was born!) at 5 Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida, in June 2020. He ran the entire Allen Turner PLM series, finishing 5th in points. This was enough to give him a provisional starting spot in the 2020 Snowflake 100 in just the sixth race of his career. He added Montgomery Motor Speedway’s Show Me The Money series to his schedule in 2021 and ran a couple of PLM features at Nashville Fairgrounds in 2022. 

After the COVID-19 shutdown cut his sophomore year of high school short and looked to transition him to less-than-ideal virtual learning for his junior year, the decision was made to begin homeschooling. He was able to graduate from high school 3 months early and begin technical school immediately, as other high school students were unable to capitalize on program openings until the summer. 

He is now a full time CNC/Machining student during the day and works full time in a machine/fabrication/assembly shop in the evenings. Machining has become very enjoyable for him, and he has progressed through his program at a record pace. This experience has given him the desire to combine his machining skills and knowledge of racing to create various parts and products for the industry, made by a racer for racers.
