Chase Elliott, driving the Number 9 Hendricks Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro, tamed the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval today!! They are now calling him a Road Course Ace as this was his 4th consecutive road race win and he is on his way to the Nascar Playoffs.
Due to the fact that Jimmie Johnson is retiring as a full-time driver and the end of this season, Lora & I have decided that Chase Elliott is going to be our new favorite driver. Of course, now we’ll have to buy a bunch of Chase Elliott t-shirts and maybe a jacket or two. It is necessary to support your favorite driver. Naturally, we’ll always be fans of Jimmie Johnson, but Chase will be out active-driver favorite.
In case anybody missed it; one of the consequences of Chases’ win today was that Baby-Brat Kyle Busch is now out of the playoffs. So, the defending champion no longer has the opportunity to defend his title. I don’t wish ill of anybody, but I just don’t like the attitude of this driver, regardless of how good a driver he is. Better luck next time, Kyle.
With only 4 more races left in the season, Chase just cinched his spot in the Round of Eight and is a top pick for going onto the Round of Four, from which this year’s champion will be determined for the Nascar Playoffs. We’re excited to see how Chase does in the next 3 races and then the Champion Race at Phoenix Raceway.
