Chase “Seth” Storch will make his first career ARCA Series presented by Menards start in the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200 at Salem Speedway in the Max Force DK-LOK #23.
“I’ve got a simple job to do at Salem and that’s get the car in the race and keep all the fenders on it,” said Storch. “It’s a big opportunity for me and I appreciate Thomas and Tommy having the confidence in me to get it done.”
Hailing from Tampa, Florida Storch’s racing resume begins like most young drivers in a Kart on dirt. Tracks in South Florida like Eastbay Raceway, Dirt Devils Speedway and Auburndale Speedway soon gave way to asphalt at Martin County Kartway before Storch was racing an Open Wheel Modified and a Mini Sprint Car.
“This is our second 2 car effort, our first was getting Brad Smith back in a race car and our second is one of our UNOH crew members. Both are really very cool for us as a race team,” said Thomas “Moose” Praytor. “It wasn’t all that long ago I was working on cars for Andy Belmont and Grant Enfinger looking for an opportunity. It’s awesome to be able to do that for someone else”
Storch will pilot Max Force Racings chassis nicknamed “Bubba” at Salem Speedway. Speaking of nicknames, Storch earned his nickname “Seth” when he joined Max Force Racing because of his uncanny resemblance to Family Guy originator Seth McFarlane.
