Chase, a native of Brampton, Ontario, has been racing since he was 10 years old. He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes just one month after his first competitive race. Since then, diabetes has done anything but slow Chase down. Following a disappointing final season in karts, shortened by an accident at Mosport International Speedway leaving him watching the rest of the season from the sidelines with a badly broken arm, Chase's determination is stronger than ever. The goal for 2013 is to make his mark in Open Wheel cars, competing in the Formula Tour 1600 Championship.  
Chase’s passion for racing is only matched by his passion for making a positive difference in the diabetes community. With his racing program as a backdrop, Chase visits hospitals and diabetes camps across Ontario spreading inspiration and encouragement to children facing the challenges of diabetes, with his “Get Your Diabetes On Track” workshop. He has been a guest speaker at 3 international diabetes conferences and was presented with the Inspiration Award in 2011 by the Canadian Diabetes Association. Chase is also the driving force behind the Academy Of Martial Arts (his dojo), Karate Chops Diabetes program. Having successfully achieved his Black Belt in Goju Karate in June 2012, Chase lead the way helping to raise $75,000 for JDRF in their first event. For 2013, the goal is to exceed $100,000 on their way toward a $250,000 commitment to JDRF.  
True to his positive messages about diabetes, Chase aspires to compete at the highest levels of open wheel racing. Says Chase: “Diabetes taught me I could accomplish anything if I put my mind to it. Martial Arts has given me focus and determination. Achieving my dreams won't be easy, but it is only a matter of time before it is a reality".
