LESMURDIE drag racer Jake Chaisty is still waiting to hear whether he is the youngest Super Stock champion in Australia.
Chaisty’s father Geoff said his eldest son turned 23 just five days before the Australian Nationals.
It’s not confirmed but [we’re] pretty certain he was the youngest ever Australia Super Stock Champion,’’ he said.
Chaisty Jr finished a close second in the Super Stock grand final, which gave him enough points to be named Super Stock champion at the Australian Nationals held at Sydney Dragway.
Chaisty Sr was 37 in 1998 when he won the same title – he also won it again the following year.
His youngest son Jamie, 21, and Jake share the car.
“The plan is to do a 12-month season or so each and swap, Jamie crewed for Jake and now Jake will crew for Jamie.’’
On Saturday, November 15 Jamie competed at the Perth Motorplex in a regular event and won the Supercomp bracket in what was his first attempt in the class.
Chaisty Sr does most of the work on the 2001 VX Commodore SS himself with some help from his sons.
