Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott have got themselves in a very nasty feud and there is no stopping anytime soon.
It started last month in the Cup Series playoffs race at Bristol and the driver are taking every opportunity to get one over the other.
From sharing heated arguments after the race or in their interviews to trying to wreck each other on the track, Harvick-Elliott rivalry has been the talk of the Cup Series in the playoffs.
The situation has gone so far as that NASCAR intervened to make the drivers aware that they will face severe punishment if they pursue their rivalry on the track any further.
Kevin Harvick on Chase Elliott: “I'm still baffled that he's worried about me. I had no chance to win a championship. Looks like he should figure out how to take the same car and run as fast as the 5.”

Elliott made fun of the situation that he advanced to the playoffs and Harvick didn’t after the Stewart-Haas Racing’s driver elimination from the playoffs.
After the race at Texas, Harvick was again asked about the incident of the past week to which he replied:
“I’m still baffled that he’s worried about me. I had no chance to win a championship. Looks like he should figure out how to take the same car and run as fast as the 5.”
By comparing him to Kyle Larson, Harvick probably meant to show Elliott that he was not even the best in his own team.
