Chase McDermand has joined Dave Mac-Dalby Motorsports to chase the 2024 Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota championship.
McDermand broke the news Thursday afternoon of his plans to join Oklahoma-based team for the 2024 season, filling the vacant seat left by Cannon McIntosh in September. The 2024 season will mark the Illinois-native’s third-straight season chasing dirt Midget racing’s newest national championship.
“I cannot wait to get this new chapter going and look forward to what’s to come,” McDermand wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter). “Thank you to [Dave Mac-Dalby Motorsports] and [Dave McIntosh] for this incredible opportunity!”
McDermand recently revealed he and Mounce-Stout Motorsports had parted ways following two seasons on the national Midget scene, where they were victorious seven times with the Xtreme Outlaw Series. In 2023, McDermand and Mounce/Stout finished fifth in the championship points standings and won six Toyota Racing Features – most of any driver – two of which came during the inaugural Appalachian Midget Week in Pennsylvania.
“I cannot express how thankful I am for Jay Mounce, Gavin Stout and all of our partners for the last two seasons,” McDermand wrote in a social media statement. “Jay and Gavin took a chance on me and I will forever be grateful for that. We accomplished things not many thought were possible in my first two seasons in national Midgets.”
Before officially debuting with the Dave Mac team, McDermand will get behind the wheel of the Trifecta Motorsports flagship #7U Midget for the 38th annual Chili Bowl Nationals at the SageNet Center in Tulsa, OK – Jan. 7-13.
