South Boston’s New Leaders

The short-track scene is filled with young drivers looking for a break and intent on “making it” in the sport. The Brashearses are a bit of an outlier in the short-track world because not only are they a couple, they are also both 2017 graduates of East Tennessee State University. The Brashearses spent the 2021 season learning the ins and outs of the operation before assuming their current roles for the track’s 65th anniversary this year. “When Nick Igdalsky at Pocono and Cathy Rice here started searching for someone, Cathy was really the one that kept saying that they wanted some younger people and they just wanted new ideas and revitalized ideas for short tracks,” Chase Brashears said. Yet, while both Chase and Carly Brashears are just 27, each has a long background in racing. “In this work you cannot leave it,” Carly Brashears said. “When you go home it doesn’t just stay at the race track. “Getting SRX here was a big thing,” Chase Brashears said. She also plans to be involved at South Boston for as long as she can.
