2020 Cup Series champion Chase Elliott liked every change that NASCAR had in the 2020 season.
NASCAR was one of the first sports to get back to racing during the pandemic. However, it was not easy as said. They had to eliminate the practice and qualifying sessions and hold double-headers so as to complete the schedule on time.
When asked about the changes that Elliott liked the most, the No. 9 Chevrolet driver replied:
“There is nothing they have done this year that I have not liked. They have all been really big winners for our industry.
“I see positives in shorter weekends, I see positives in no practice, I see positives in the choose cone. I see positives in double-headers. Especially at race tracks that we visit within a month’s time and that you’re not selling out anyway.
“There’s a lot of really good things that they’ve been doing. I just feel like they’re getting back to a lot of basics that we outgrew as an industry. That we really got to get back to make everything work.”
Liking those changes is good news for the reigning champion as he will have to defend his title under similar circumstances. Most of the regular-season races will continue to be a one-day show, without practice and qualifying sessions.
