FIRST TRIP TO THE LONG BEACH GRAND PRIX FOR PARKER CHASE
April 11, 2018
Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach debut for young 17-year-old
After a successful weekend in his hometown race scoring a podium finish in Pirelli World Challenge SprintX competition, Parker Chase is ready to hit the track again for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Taking place this coming weekend, April 13-15, Chase will visit the famed temporary Long Beach circuit for the first time and he is aiming for his first victory of the season after a podium finish at the Circuit of the Americas only two weeks ago.
“I am ready to get back on track and am happy to have Ryan Dalziel as my driver coach again. It’s nice to run the SprintX races with him and still be able to continue on with him during my individual races,” expressed Chase. “I haven’t competed at the Grand Prix of Long Beach so I am ready to start the weekend and feel well prepared thanks to TruSpeed Autosport and the help and advice from Ryan.”
While this will be his first on track competition in the historic event, it will not be his first trip to the area. Parker was able to participate in multiple media events during the 2018 season thus far including the Long Beach Media Day on April 3 to kick off the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Working with members of the Long Beach Grand Prix and the Pirelli World Challenge, Chase and his TruSpeed AutoSport squad helped kick off the Long Beach festivities with the help of their Audi R8 LMS GT3.
Chase continued, “I would like to thank the Pirelli World Challenge and Long Beach Grand Prix staff for inviting me to participate in their media day. It was great to help drum up some excitement for the upcoming event. This weekend I am excited to welcome my partners Music Movement, Vertical Bridge, Protein Water and also members of the website Cars.TV in Long Beach. We had a great event in Austin where a lot of my marketing partners were able to come to the track and view the racing for the very first time. The environment we have at TruSpeed Autosport is one that makes everyone feel at home and I am happy to be a part of that.”
Parker Chase would like to thank his marketing partners for their continued support. A big thank you to Vertical Bridge, ProBalance Protein Water, New Braunfels Convention and Visitors Bureau, Sparco, Audi Sport, TruSpeed AutoSport, Music Movement, Ironclad Gloves, Mothers Polish and RTD Media & Management.
