Ross Chastain said that he talked with Kurt Busch, Joey Logano and his teammates about his aggressive style of driving and it was an eye-opening conversation for him.
According to Forbes, Chastain “ranks as one of the most prolific long-run passers in the Cup Series and the most efficient passer specifically compared to other drivers in his typical running whereabouts.”
His aggressive style of driving brought about other drivers to speak to him about his aggression. Chatain took those remarks in a good way.
“I tried to table that (aggression) and put it aside to start this year, but I still, in those instinctive moments of to block or not, or to push a guy or not, or to let him go, I was still making those same moves and I didn’t realize it,” Chastain said.
“A few guys sat me down. Kurt (Busch), my teammate, and Joey Logano, we had a good conversation after a race, and it was kind of eye-opening.”
Back in May, Chastain believed that he had an option with Chip Ganassi Racing for the 2022 season but with CGR having sold to Trackhouse Racing, Chastain is set to hit the free agency and will have to find a new ride for the 2022 season.
