“To all my fans, friends, and family, this past week Jett Motorsports and I have decided to part ways. I would like to say that I am very thankful for Pat and Kris Jett for taking a chance on me three years ago and giving me a new racing home. In the time, I was able to grow and develop myself, not only as a driver but also personally on and off the track. I will forever be grateful for their guidance and mentorship. I appreciate all the time spent, and all the things we accomplished together … we had one heck of a ride, that’s for sure.”
Nasse announced he will operate his own Late Model team, with hopes to eventually expand. Chris Cater will join him maintaining his current role as Nasse’s crew chief, with plans to compete at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway in May.
“I can’t thank all the guys who have worked with me through the years for their relentless work at the track to bring me a winning capable race car. It has been a hard decision for me, but I think it’s time to operate on my own ‘Stephen Nasse Racing’ so that I can be more hands on the product we bring to the race track. Our goal is to eventually expand and I am very grateful to bring my crew chief, Chris Cater with me. Can’t wait to be back at the track in our Late Models in Nashville!”
In recent years, Nasse has been one of the top drivers in Super Late Model and Pro Late Model competition. Highlights include a dominant win in the 2019 Winchester 400, as well as victories in the 2019 Short Track U.S. Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway and the Pro Late Model feature at the 2020 All American 400. Just this year, Nasse scored wins in the Orange Blossom 100 at New Smyrna Speedway, the Pro Late Model Rattler 125 at South Alabama Speedway and in a CARS Tour-Southern Super Series co-sanctioned race at Greenville-Pickens Speedway.
