Born into a family full of racers -- his mother, uncle and grandfather -- it is no wonder Gabby Chaves has shown talent in motorsports. 

He started racing go-karts at age 11 and two years later won the four most prestigious karting championships in the U.S.  Also at age 13, Chaves was accepted into the Skip Barber Racing School and he went undefeated in 11 races in the 2007-08 Southern Series. Soon after he made the move to formula car racing.

The United States Tennis Association ranked Chaves one of the top young tennis players and he still plays regularly.
