He has raced in many forms of motorsports including Motocross, the Baja 1000, SCCA, Vintage events, and others. He’s a big fan of early Porsches and still owns and drives his father’s 1958 Speedster in the hills around Los Angeles. It was the first new car his father purchased. Most recently Chad was a producer on a feature documentary titled Steve McQueen, The Man & Le Mans. It’s the story of a life changing passion for racing and his father’s involvement in the making of the iconic 1970 movie Le Mans. This film interweaves stunning new footage and private recordings with original interviews telling a behind-the-scenes story about risking everything to pursue a dream.
