The History of Chinn Motorsports

Ironically, Chinn Motorsports began because Wayne A. Chinn lost his driver's license in the 1950's. Wayne's early career was very successful, through 1963, with many championship triumphs. These achievements were accomplished at many local racing tracks in Ohio, with Wayne racing as often as four evenings a week. The Ohio tracks where Wayne raced regularly were Forest Park Raceway, Kil-Kare Speedway, DeGraff Speedway, Eldora Speedway, and the legendary high-bank speedway known as Dayton Speedway.

Second Generation driver Jim Chinn started racing go-karts in 1973, traveling to local road race courses in Ohio and Indiana. Once he sharpened his talents he competed in WKA and the formula 2000 Enduro Series. From the mid 70's to early 80's Jim competed in stock car racing on dirt and asphalt ovals in the Ohio area. In 1992 he began racing IMCA modified cars in Ohio and Indiana.

Third Generation - Wayne W. Chinn. Wayne's goal is to continue his career into the professional ranks of driving RACE CARS. He is committed 110% to educating himself on chassis handling and driving knowledge in the automobile racing business. Wayne is focused on proving his skills in the professional sport of racing on a regional and national level.

Wayne started in karting from 1995 through 1997.  With many wins and championships in karting the next logical step was into full size midgets. He competed in the Namars, and USAC series in both the midgets, and silver crown cars. Then with a change in direction Wayne moved to the UMP modified division, where he found much success in 2003, ending the season as the Ohio state UMP Modified Champion. 2004 was a transition season, beginning once again with many successful runs in the modifieds, then moving into the Dirt Late Model category to finish out the season, along the way Wayne earned Florence Speedways 2004 Rookie of the Year award.

The 2005 season saw Wayne competing in the Dirt Late Model division running both locally and the regional series, Battle of the Bluegrass.  With finishing eighth in the BOB's series points and second in their rookie points, this made the 2005 season a very successful start into the Dirt Late Models.  In 2006 Wayne moved around running multiple different local, regional, and national races. With four main event wins, and many top five finishes throughout the season, Wayne and Chinn Motorsports have become a contender every where the go.
