NASCAR’s busiest driver, Ross Chastain, is a 12th-generation farmer and eighth-generation watermelon farmer from Alva, Fla. When not working in the field, Chastain competes in all three of NASCAR’s top-tier series. His most recent victory was at Daytona International Speedway (July 2019) when he took the green-and-white checkered flag to win Stage One and led 49 of the 100 laps before driving into Victory Lane.
Chastain made his NASCAR debut in 2011 at the age of 18, competing in just five events before transforming the opportunity into a full-time ride in 2012. In his rookie campaign, Chastain earned a best finish of third place at Bristol Motor Speedway after starting in the 15th position. It was then that Chastain caught the eye of fellow driver and team owner Brad Keselowski, who offered the young gun a ride piloting the No. 19 in the NASCAR Truck Series.
Taking advantage of the opportunity, Chastain collected two pole awards and led 229 laps en route to four top-five finishes – including two runner-up finishes – and seven top 10s.
In 2014, Chastain made his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway and competed in a total of seven races that season, earning a top-10 finish at Kentucky Speedway.
Success continued for the up-and-coming driver in the 2015-2017 seasons, as he ended each year in the top 20 in the NXS standings. The 2017 season also brought Chastain the opportunity to make his NASCAR Cup Series debut at Dover International Speedway, where he earned an impressive top-20 finish, advancing 16 positions from 36th.
In 2019, the Florida native continued his efforts earning his second-career Xfinity Series win and highest season points standing of second place in the Truck Series.
In 2020, Chastain finished 7th in the NASCAR XFINITY Series points standings scoring 15 top-5s and 27 top-10s, driving the No. 10 Nutrien Ag Solutions Chevrolet for Kaulig Racing.
Chastain was hired to the drive the No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2021.
Off the race track and farming field, Chastain enjoys spending time with family and friends and being outdoors.
