Humston to Relax in 2012
March 16, 2012 - When asked to look back and reflect on the last few seasons behind the wheel of a 360 sprint car Chad Humston smiles. "It was a long windy road, with a lot of ups and a lot of downs, but man was it fun!"

This year will be a little different for the 25 year old Giltner, Ne native. The view at the racetrack especially. Chad has decided to make other things in his life top priority from now on and not be behind the wheel of a racecar for the 2012 season. "Ever since I can remember, every weekend was spent at the racetrack. I will have so much time to spend pursuing other opportunities. Things that I have always wanted to do, but not been able I can do. Its sad to end that chapter in my life, but exciting at the same time." While Chad is at the track this year, he will be cheering on his former competitors instead of trying to pass them.

When asked why the decision was made not to get behind the wheel of a racecar this year Chad had many answers, and his health was one of them. As a baby Chad was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Cystic fibrosis is a disease that causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs, digestive tract, and other areas of the body. It is one of the most common chronic lung diseases in children and young adults. Chad has been battling (and winning) his fight with CF since he was just a baby.

"Who's sick?" Chad asks as he laughs. "Oh, thats right, I'm the one with CF, I almost forgot!" While Chad's health is always on his mind he doesn't let it stop him from doing anything. "Yeah it will always be there, but who cares. Im going to live my life to the fullest and enjoy it, each and every day"

This summer Chad will concentrate not only on his health, but helping run the family business, which is based out of Aurora, Ne. While that will keep him busy enough he says he will always have time for his new wife, Erin. The two got married this past fall. "It's great to have someone like Erin that is right by my side every step of the way. She is my best friend and perfect for me. Its going to be a great summer!" You will still see Chad at the track enjoying the races with friends and family, and cheering on his favorite driver(s).

Chad has had great success and even more fun while driving for many car owners over the past few years. "We've made a lot of friends and have had a lot of fun. I can't thank everyone enough for the opportunities I have been given. Most recently I need to thank Mark and Mari Burch. It was an incredible opportunity to drive the famed 1M and even better getting to know the Burch family."

Although it seems as for now a chapter has been closed in Chads book. Meanwhile a new chapter has begun, and the Humston family can't wait to begin writing their new story.
