Ross Chastain has successfully navigated his stock car racing career. In the No. 45 TrüNorthTM Chevrolet Silverado, NASCAR’s best driver begins his weekends with Niece Motorsports of the Truck Series.
On Saturdays, he races in the Xfinity Series for JD Motorsports. Last but not least, he finishes his Cup Series weekends with Premium Motorsports, driving the No. 15 Rim Riderz Chevrolet ZL1.
The American professional stock car racing driver is also known as “The Watermelon Man,” “Melon Man,” and “NASCAR’s Busiest Driver.”
Ross Chastain’s Family Details
Ross, 26, started racing at the age of 12 in Florida short tracks in both the late model and Fastruck Series. His first professional race took place at Punta Gorda Speedway in Port Charlotte, but the outcome was unsatisfying.
His grandfather, Jim Prevatt, who also raced professionally, thought Ross’s desire to race would fade after a bad experience of hitting the wall due to some mechanical failure.
But Ross was unstoppable, and when his grandfather and entire family heard about his desire to continue racing, they rallied behind him in every way.
Ross’ family has been cheering for him ever since, not missing a single race of their heartthrob.
Aside from his grandfather, his brother, Chad Chastain, and his father, Ralph Chastain, have all worked in the same industry at some point in their lives.
Ross worked on his family’s 350-acre watermelon farm in Florida before pursuing sports.
Ross Chastain’s Salary and Net Worth
The Alva, Florida native drove the No. 16 Camaro for Kaulig Racing to victory in the 2019 Circle K Firecracker 250 at Daytona.
Ross’ teammates, Justin Haley and A.J. Allmendinger, finished second and third, respectively. Prior to this, Ross had a long list of victories to his name.
Meanwhile, with his recent victory, Chastain has become the only driver in the Truck Series to have three victories this season.
It is a well-known fact that NASCAR stars earn well into the seven figures through their salaries and endorsements.
Ross, on the other hand, has yet to reveal his net worth and salary.
Relationship Status: Girlfriend/Wife?
Ross’s line of work necessitates constant encouragement from his loved ones.
It is clear that he has a supportive family behind him, but the rest of his life is a complete mystery.
Ross has yet to make a statement about his girlfriend or wife (if he has one). Despite this, he does not appear to have engaged in the sacred institution known as marriage.
If he had been married, it would have created quite a stir if he had intended to keep it a secret at all.
Ross, who stands at a good-looking height, has a large number of fans and followers who follow his amazing works. They’d love to get a glimpse into his love life.
