At 20 years, 2 months and 17 days Chase is also the youngest Daytona 500 pole-winner in history. The previous record holder was Austin Dillon in 2014 at 23 years, 9 months, 27 days.
Chase might be young, but he definitely appreciates the significance of what his father and his family accomplished.
"They had some great days down here," Chase said of his father’s race team in the mid-1980s, which included Bill’s brothers Ernie and Dan. "It’s hard to not have a ton of respect for everything they did. Doing it out of Georgia, the manner about which they went about their business I think is really special. I think that’s something to look at and go about your business like that. I feel like they did things the right way. That’s very cool to look back on."
