Chase Christensen hails from Salt Lake City, and grew up around high-performance GM vehicles. He took possession of his very first F-body— an ’86 Trans Am— at the age of 13 and has been wrenching ever since. After a brief stint rebuilding totaled Corvettes, Chase attended Utah State University where he earned a degree in journalism. After graduation, he worked as a public relations specialist while moonlighting as an automotive journalist at a local newspaper. He also is a wildly successful bench racer who believes life is better with regular oil changes.
