NASCAR Playoffs are well underway and the 12 remaining drivers are battling it out for survival. Recently, Chase Elliott spoke with Fox Sports about the NASCAR playoffs and feels that he would probably crash at the Talladega Speedway next weekend.
Elliott confessed that he’s not thinking about racing in Talladega just yet. According to the 24-y-o, the chance of that happening was highly likely in his mind.
He said, “The way I look at it is, I’m probably gonna crash. Anything more than crashing is just icing on top. So I’m gonna go into this weekend and really focus on Vegas. I’m not gonna dwell on next weekend yet. We have a whole race here in Vegas to try and perform and get a win and move on the right way.”

According to Elliott, the battle for the playoffs has gotten more and more competitive over the years. The Hendrick Motorsports driver has seen this trend ever since his early days in NASCAR.
Chase Elliott will be starting the race in 3rd. He will be right on the tail of Kevin Harvick No. 4 ride and Kyle Busch No. 18 for this weekend race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
