Background.

Chris Greene at Bonneville 2017

We met him at the Tacoma Dome Motorsports show when he was 14 years old.  Talking to the team he found out we were only a 1/4 mile from his house.  He started riding his BMX bike to the hangar and didn’t miss a single weekend for five years!  He likes to race motocross and road racing motorcycles.  In 2018 he bought a Midget and started tearing up the tracks on the West Coast.

On the team he did an internship with the late Ed Drumheller II and is now in charge of parachutes.  During the week he works on custom hot rods that have won at SEMA and featured on Barrett Jackson’s Auctions.  At the races you can find Chris assembling the car when we first arrive, then packing the parachutes for Jessi Combs.  When Rich Pengelley moved to Oregon, Chris took over the start cart duties.  So this young man has a key role in the start up of the car and stopping it.
