Hansen will chase different type of Wild West Tour title

Hansen will chase different type of Wild West Tour title

MYTON, Utah – Chase Hansen has held a variety of titles over the first nine years of the 1st Class Chassis Wild West Tour … everything from statistician and graphic designer to competitor and feature winner.

The title he’d like to add to his resume this season is champion.

The only driver to have raced at all 107 events in the history of IMCA Modified portion of the tour, Hansen won twice and was a career-best second in the final 2014 point standings. He was sixth when the tour resumed after a four-year hiatus in 2019.

“I’ve finished in the top 10 in points every year so winning the tour championship would be cool. Winning the top 20 race (in Las Vegas in November) would be cool, too,” said the Myton, Utah, hotshoe, oldest son of tour director Ken Hansen. “We’ve always tried to keep up on maintenance and be consistent. I think that’s the key to winning championships.”

Hansen logged 92 starts before taking his first checkers, at Diamond Mountain Speedway, a win that ultimately put him in the starting field for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. He was back in victory lane less than a month later at Nevada’s Great Basin Raceway.

The tour has taken drivers to 15 different venues around the Shaw Race Cars Western Region since 2007. Frequent stops Diamond Mountain and Sweetwater Speedway in Wyoming are among Hansen’s favorite racing locales.

“Getting my first tour win at Vernal was a pretty big highlight. Diamond Mountain is my home track and that made it even more special,” he said. “I’m actually partial to quite a few tracks, like Rock Springs. I’ve always enjoyed racing at Sweetwater and we ran second there last year.”

Cocopah Speedway hosts the April 17-18 weekend for traveling IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods as the tour makes its first-ever trip to Arizona.

“I think Cocopah will be fun. It’s a track that I’ve always wanted to go to,” commented Hansen, also looking forward to the tour’s return to Aztec Speedway in New Mexico. “I was as happy as anyone when the tour started again last year. We got to go back to tracks we hadn’t been to for a while.”
