Fox reporter Bob Pockrass on Monday asked Chase Elliott how will go about getting the trophy from Denny Hamlin.

“I hadn’t really even thought about it,” Elliott said. “Honestly, if he wants to keep it, he can keep it as far as I’m concerned. He crossed the finish line first. I haven’t really thought about that. That’s a great question.

“I didn’t really feel like I earned it on track yesterday. If he wants to keep it, then I’m good with that.” he added

Chase Elliott is first in the regular season standings and leads the playoff race.

Joe Gibbs admitted that they were shocked to learn the news about the infraction in the two cars and they will be reviewing every part of the process that led to the aftermath saying,
