Chase is in a situation that is both enviable and stressful. He is the defending 250 East champion and has a plan laid out to move him to the 450 class. I have no doubt he will ride the 450 well, his technique is flawless. I am however concerned with his lack of experience, almost every contender in the 450 class has a resume similar to Chases. I think he would benefit from another year of 250 racing, but you take the opportunities presented.
