Longhorn Chassis was founded in 2010 by NASCAR Champion Bobby Labonte, along with his brother and two time NASCAR Champion, Terry Labonte. With both Labontes being so heavily involved with racing their entire lives, they know what it takes and both strive for the same thing; a strong, fast, winning race car.
After numerous successful seasons as a Dirt Late Model team owner, to drivers Earl Pearson Jr and Brad Neat, (Bobby) Labonte decided to take it one step further with his racing operations and the team started building their own race cars, in shop. The first two late model chassis built out of Longhorn Chassis went to Justin Labonte and the house car, driven by Earl Pearson Jr. Pearson would debut his Longhorn Chassis at the North/South 100 in Florence (KY) where he finished a solid second, he'd later record Longhorn Chassis' first Victory at the 2010 Dirt Track World Championships at West Virginia Motor Speedway.
In 2012 Kevin Rumley joined the Longhorn Chassis team, Rumley, partner owner of K&L Rumley Enterprises, will serve as the lead engineer. The addition of Rumley is aimed to bring an engineering emphasis to the Longhorn Chassis and thus the race performances of all its customers, his expertise will immediately bring the Longhorn Chassis to the next level.
