May 24th, 2013 - Chandler opened set out to enter a busy three day weekend with the NeSmith Late Model Series in Mississippi on Friday evening with a $2,000-to-win program at Hattiesburg Motorsports Park (Hattiesburg, Mississippi). Thirty-four entries were in action in the event at the 1/4 mile oval, and the night started on a strong note as Petty registered the fastest time in hot laps by more than a tenth of a second, and a strong qualifying effort locked into the eighth starting spot for the 40 lap feature via time trials. Early in the feature he raced into the top five and was running in the fourth position on lap 12, when contact from behind forced him into an infield tire. The contact resulted in a heavily damaged front end, which forced Petty to not only retire from the feature but scratch from the balance of the weekend's events. He was credited with a nineteenth place finish.

May 18th, 2013 - Chandler Petty recorded his first NeSmith Chevrolet Crate Late Model win of the 2013 season in dominant fashion on Saturday night at West Plains Motor Speedway (West Plains, Missouri).

In the first corner of the feature he split the field and was running third by the time that he made it to the backstretch.

The victory was his second overall of 2013!
