A Legacy Decades In The Making

Al Bacon founded Bacon Performance in 1979, racing Porsche's in GT2 in SCCA. The team made their IMSA debut in 1981, running a Porsche 911 in GTU. In 1983, the team expanded again, purchasing a Mazda RX7 and entering into IMSA as a full-time team. Al Bacon notched his first big IMSA win in 1983, taking the top spot on the podium at the prestigious 12 Hours of Sebring.


Factory Mazda

Following the 12 Hours of Sebring Win, Bacon Performance grew quickly with Factory Mazda coming on board to support the team. By 1989, a second car was added to the team. After a string of wins, Bacon Performance etched their name in motorsports history, winning 1989's Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. The team would go on to win at Daytona again claiming top spot in 1991, 1992, and 1993. 


Like Father, Like Son

Al's son Chad entered the professional racing scene in 2001 racing SCCA GT4 in a Toyota Celica. Chad went on to campaign the car for 9 years, including three National Championship podium finishes. 

In 2011 Chad made the move into GT3 racing. Over the next decade, Chad went on to claim two more podiums at the National Championship and racked up an impressive 35 race wins in his career. 

Now the team principle & owner at CB Motorsports, Chad's primary focus is the growth of the program and development of his son Caleb's racing career.

3 Generations of Family Racing

Born into a motorsports family, Caleb was already competing behind the wheel by age 4 in the Kid Kart series. Over the next 4 years, Caleb participated in over 70 races and finishing 2nd in the 2012 WKA championship. 

From ages 8-12, Caleb would continue his karting career in the Cadet, Tag Junior, & Tag Senior categories, racking up over two dozen podium finishes and another 2nd place WKA championship podium. Caleb's total Karting career saw over 30 wins.

At the age of 13, Caleb made the jump into cars, campaigning a Spec Miata in SCCA & NASA. Just a short year later, Caleb moved into the big leagues, running a Veloster TCR in SRO. In his first year, Caleb finished 5th in points with with a top 5 finish or better in every race he entered. 

Caleb went on to run the Veloster in both TCA & IMSA in 2021, claiming the overall TCA points win with 5 wins and 2 second place finishes. 


Building on this momentum, Caleb took the 2022 season to branch out, piloting both the Veloster TCR,  a Toyota Supra GT4, and a Lamborghini Super Trofeo, in which he won 1 race and had 3 additional top 5 finishes.

Now in 2023, Caleb is behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang in the incredibly competitive Trans Am TA2 series. Despite being new to the series, Caleb currently holds the 14th spot out of 64 drivers in the championship including 3 top 10 finishes. Caleb's goal is to finish the championship in the top 10 as a rookie.
