A local young man is making a splash on the BMX racing world and as of the last years Grand race in Oklahoma was ranked as 12th in the nation for his age. Chase Robinson is a sophomore at Findlay high school and is a member of the distinguished honor roll.
A quiet, polite young man he can become very aggressive on the track and his home is filled with trophies he has won since he was ten years old. He rarely places lower than fifth place and as high as 2nd in this past years national competitions.
It is not without risk and he is sporting some bruises and scrapes from his last race where he crashed hard. He has also broken his collar bone racing.
He would like to turn pro by the time he turns 19 and it is a life goal to stay close to the track as a manager or trainer of racers.
He has an amazing support group as his little sister Payton (who also races) and his mom and dad (Kelli and Tony) who go to every race with I’m. This past year they have been to Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Ohio competing. He is a member of a race team and they have numerous sponsors including Blot Out Graphics, Right Direction (who bought his bike for him) and Fly Racing. His grandfather, Mike Chiarelli, also pays for all hotel expenses.
