The 28-year-old native of Mitchell, Indiana, will continue to drive the club’s No. 14 Fords for several seasons, according to the team’s announcement on Thursday. The organization did not provide a specific timeframe for the contract.

After winning a season-high 9 races in the 2020 Xfinity Series, SHR moved Briscoe to the Cup Series in 2021. Briscoe kept up his performance in Cup, easily taking home the rookie of the year award.

In his 40th career start at Phoenix Raceway, Briscoe had a breakthrough sophomore season in 2022, earning his first Cup Series race and earning playoff qualification.

 The NASCAR Hall of Famer Tony Stewart, who co-owns SHR with company founder Gene Haas, said, “Chase has made the most of every opportunity and the proof is in the results. Keeping him at SHR was a priority and we’re proud to have him in our racecars for many more years to come

Briscoe described the extension as having “great stability.”

“It just gives you more confidence,” he said. “Stewart-Haas Racing is where I want to be for a long time. It’s the place I’ve known longer than anywhere else in my NASCAR career.

“I remember getting signed by Ford in 2017 and I told people, ‘You know, if I could pick one place to be, it would be Stewart-Haas Racing. And if I could drive one car, it would be the No. 14 car. That would be the ultimate dream.’

“And now, here I am.”

Third-generation racer Briscoe started his racing career on dirt tracks in and near Indiana, where he comes from. At the age of 13, he started sprint motorsport. He relocated to North Carolina in 2014 in order to pursue a career in stock car racing.

Before being given the opportunity to drive for Briggs Cunningham III in two ARCA Racing Series events in 2015, Briscoe worked in race shops. Briscoe took advantage of the chance and secured a full-time race for 2016, winning six races and the title, before joining Brad Keselowski Racing in the NASCAR Truck Series for 2017.

Following his victory in the Truck Series rookie-of-the-year contest, SHR and Roush-Fenway Racing ran a limited Xfinity Series schedule in 2018. In September 2018 at the Charlotte Roval, Briscoe and SHR achieved his first Xfinity Series victory of his professional career. After that, he participated continuously in the Xfinity Series with SHR in 2019 and 2020, earning a spot in the NASCAR playoffs each year.

“Growing up in Indiana and racing sprint cars, the guy I always looked up to was Tony Stewart. To be able to drive for him is a dream come true,” Briscoe said. “To know I’ll have my name above the door of that No. 14 Ford Mustang for a really long time means a lot, and I’m ready to write my own history in it.”
