Now 35 years old, Chad Homan has established himself as a veteran in the racing world. Over the past twenty three years, he has steadily moved up through the local racing levels. His recent accomplishments include securing the 2017 late model track championship at the Humberstone Speedway and finishing 3rd in points at the Fulton Speedway that same year.

When he was 8 years old, Chad competed in Microds all over New York State. During his 6 years of competition, Chad earned two track championships and three top-five points finishes in the New York State series. When he was only 15 years of age, Chad moved up to the Dirt Pro Stock division at Canandaigua Speedway. Over the eight seasons between 1998 and 2005, Chad developed himself into a prominent force in the Dirt Pro Stock ranks, earning 23 feature wins, including 1 Super DIRT Series Pro Stock win at Rolling Wheels Raceway. In addition, Chad was a perennial championship contender, with 4 straight 2nd place finishes in championship points at Canandaigua Speedway.

Late in 2005, Chad teamed with the newly formed 1 Up Motorsports organization to develop a new DIRT Modified team for the 2006 racing season. Along with making the jump to the modified division, Chad also expanded his 2006 race schedule to include all of the races at Canandaigua Speedway, and Cayuga County Fair Speedway. Together, Chad and 1 Up Motorsports had a very successful and competitive rookie season in the Big Block Modified division. On June 7th, 2009 all of the hard work paid off as Chad fulfilled a lifelong dream and won his first Modified feature at Cayuga County Fair Speedway. The team then turned around the following season and won the 2010 Steel City Stampede at Lernerville Speedway, earning Chad his first BRP Modified Tour victory. 2011 proved to be a trying year, as engine problems left Chad and the team sidelined for much of the season, but they returned to victory lane in 2012 with a win at Rolling Wheels Raceway during Super Dirt Week.

After continuing in the big block modified division in 2013 through 2015, the team was ready for a change in 2016 and made the switch to a crate late model. After working closely with Berheisel race cars, Chad was able to dial in the set up and find success in nearly their first race out of the gate. Chad had X wins at his home track of Canandaigua Speedway in 2016 which securing him that year's track title.

The 2017 season brought many new experiences, including racing weekly at both Fulton and Humberstone along with running multiple RUSH tour and Go Nuclear tour shows. While the team faced some challenges towards the end of the year, the season ended strong with a Humberstone track championship and a third place points finish at Fulton.

Racing is most definitely a team sport and Chad Homan Racing has one of the best crews around. It is because of the constant efforts and support of Wayne, Nancy, Marilou, Eric, Allison, Brian, Doug, Kathi, Ryan, Grace and many others that we have been such a successful and competitive team.
