Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick have been harboring bitter feelings towards each other due to their on-track clashes.
It started with the playoffs race at Bristol Motor Speedway a couple of weeks ago, when Harvick blamed Elliott for costing him the win. The two of them came together in a heated argument after the race and there was no sign of any of the two drivers calming down during the playoffs race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval as the two drivers clashed again.
However, Elliott came out as the winner of the ongoing rivalry as he advanced into the next round of the playoffs and Harvick didn’t.
Elliott was not done with the feud and aimed a cheeky response to Harvick’s exit after the race.
“As far as Kevin goes, I just want to wish them a merry off-season and a happy Christmas.
“Opinion’s certainly not changing, but it’s all good, but I’m just glad we’re moving on.”
Harvick was asked about the incident with the No.9 too, to which he replied:
“That incident with the #9, was that retaliation for Bristol? Are you guys even?”
The elimination marks a disappointing year for Harvick, who failed to win a race throughout the 2021 season.
As for Elliott, he will look to add to his championship from last year. His teammate Kyle Larson also qualified for the next round but unfortunately, both Alex Bowman and William Byron from Hendrick Motorsports failed to make it to the next round.
