Chase Elliott won his third race in the NASCAR Cup Series, and his second since beginning the playoffs. The first 90 some races he was winless, in the last 11 he’s had three. Elliott took the lead from Kevin Harvick and held on to itfor the final laps the race.
When asked about holding off Kyle Busch in the final laps he said, “I just enjoyed racing with (Busch).” And then speaking about the No. 9 “Had a great car today!”
“Been a great couple of months, gotta keep it rolling.” Elliott said with a smile.
Apparently when Elliott wins a race a siren goes off in his hometown of Dawsonville, Georgia, which is pretty cool.
“What kind of message are you sending getting two wins this round?” “Yeah we had a good round!" Elliott mentioned several times during his interviews that he wished he could have races Harvick, "Straight up," instead of Harvick getting a speeding penalty on pit road and having to go back.
Next weekend Elliott is going after another win to get a Martinsville Clock! Be sure to tune in, the season is going to start wrapping up soon.
