About Bailey Chassis Company
It all started in a basement, and grew to be one of the most well respected Mini Sprint and Micro Sprint companies in the United States. When Floyd Bailey, who worked at Gambler, started building his new company, Bailey Chassis, who would have guessed that it would grow to where it did.
Floyd was a perfectionist and brilliant when it came to pushing the design envelope in the racing industry. His advancements in suspension and construction laid the ground work for Micro and Mini Sprint racing as we know it today. In fact, many of his parts and pieces are still industry standards.
Unexpectedly, Floyd passed away in December, 2016, leaving the future of Bailey Chassis Company in doubt. In February, 2017, the next chapter in Bailey Chassis Company began, when Adam Schmidt along with his parents, Lanny and Kathy Schmidt, purchased the company.
Adam is an experienced Micro Sprint and Sprint Car racer, who drove Bailey Chassis cars in the heyday of the company’s success. Adam continued to race from the 1990’s through the early 2000’s. Now his son Adyn is racing Micro and Mini Sprints.
The Schmidt’s don’t take business lightly. They are the successful owners and operators of West Side Automation, which Lanny built from the ground up. Innovation is what West Side has built it’s name on, and that’s the same attitude the new ownership brings to Bailey Chassis. Bailey Chassis offers parts that fit many brands, so if you own a Bailey or another chassis - odds are we have something for you!
Bailey Chassis Company was founded on innovation, safety, and reliability. As the company grows, we are committed to keeping true to those roots while continuously evolving with most up to date products and practices of the industry.
