Chase Austin:The One-Time 15-Year-Old Phenom Is Back at 19

al asifyouknowSenior Analyst IJanuary 21, 2009

Chase Austin, the young man who at 15 was hired by Hendrick Motorsports, will be back to race in the Camping World series.

He will race for Trail Motorsports, a new team run by Armando Fitz.

Austin, who is now 19, has been driving his family's late model race car.

If Chase Austin and Mark Davis race together this year, it will probably be the first time two black drivers have driven in the same race at an upper series NASCAR race.

Oh, how things are changing. Good luck to you, son.
