Now 33 years old, Chad Homan has established himself as a veteran in the racing world. Over the past twenty-one years, he has steadily moved up through the local racing levels. 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.
The 2007 and 2008 seasons saw Chad and the 1 Up Motorsports team continue to build their team toward the top levels of DIRT Modified racing, earning several top-5 and top-10 finishes, along with a number of heat race wins. 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. For 2013, Chad and the team have partnered with Engine Research & Development in hopes of having their most successful season yet!
