Chase Elliott already knows what it takes to win at Bristol Motor Speedway. He won this year’s edition of the NASCAR All-Star Race there. He will be going to the elimination round of the Round of 16 with high expectations.
Elliott is 25 points ahead of the final transfer spot. So, it is safe to say that he won’t even need a good performance to qualify for the next round. However, as a winner of the past race at Bristol, he would go to the race with the expectation of winning it once again.
In a Q&A session with Elliott, the driver said:
“We’ve tried to make what we had at the All-Star Race there, better. I’m encouraged by our run there a month or so ago. We’ve worked really hard at it to try and improve and take what we had, and be better.
“I certainly hope our last couple of runs at Bristol carry over. Unfortunately, that’s not the way this deal works. We’ve had good runs at tracks in the past. It doesn’t always mean you’re going to be good when you go back. I hope that’s the case.
Elliott said that he would tweak some things about his win at Bristol for the upcoming race.
“There are a lot of times when you go to tracks and have a good run. Going back with the exact same thing doesn’t always equal the same results.
“So we took what we had then and tried to tweak a few things. I hope that we hit it all right and we can be good for 500 laps.”
