March 7, 2018:   Retired racer Steve Chassey will be the Classic Racing Times’ special guest during the Vintage Desert Classic at ISM Raceway in Phoenix, and will be recognized for more than just his on-track accomplishments.

Chassey was a successful driver in Sprint cars, Midgets, and Modifieds whose talents carried him to the Indy cars, where he amassed 44 starts including three Indianapolis 500s and races on traditional ovals and both temporary and natural-terrain road courses. Out of the car Chassey became a color analyst on ESPN’s popular “Thunder” series of televised open-wheel races.

But at Phoenix we will also be making note of Chassey’s service in the Vietnam War, service which earned him a number of medals including the Solder's Medal for heroism.

Massachusetts-born, Chassey is today an Arizona resident and during the Vintage Desert Classic he is scheduled to take the wheel of a 1979 Watson Dirt Champ car as well as meeting and greeting race fans.
