– Chase Elliott will utilize chassis No. 211 this weekend at Daytona International Speedway. The No. 23 team has raced this chassis two previous times in 2018 (Daytona and Talladega), collecting a sixth-place finish at Daytona, as well as a win with Spencer Gallagher at Talladega Super Speedway.
ELLIOTT ON HOW SIMILAR ARE THE XFINITY CARS TO THE CUP?
“Not at all there. The Xfinity cars are good but a bit slower, have a lot more grip and you can be really aggressive in those cars and make moves that you won’t see Saturday night. I ran the Saturday race in February as well and you could be super aggressive in those cars and kind of do whatever you wanted and never have to worry about getting out of shape or at least really bad out of shape. You have to really tone that down for the Cup race. The way I see it is if I wasn’t racing Friday night I would be sitting around, so I would rather go race and I appreciate GMS allowing me to do so.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
