Chase Elliott ended Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Truck Series



Chase Elliott ended Kyle Busch's NASCAR Truck Series

CONCORD, N.C. – Chase Elliott got revenge on Kyle Busch on Tuesday night – and then told him about it.

Elliott snapped seven NASCAR Truck Series racing series that won seven Busch and collected a $ 100,000 prize at Charlotte Motor Speedway before copying Busch’s victory celebration after the race by bowing to the camera.

“Hopefully no one will be hurt by it,” Elliott chuckled.

Busch looked very upset after the race, but had nothing to do with the bow.

He cursed in an interview with Fox after the race.

The interview was not broadcast live, but Busch said “it sucks when you start racing with a fraction after you have been sitting for six months. There will be some (expletive) talking when I get home.”

Busch was upset because of the divisor problem which caused problems for Toyota No. 51 all night.

Then, at Zoom’s call, he was told about Elliott’s bow.

“Imitation is the strongest form of flattery or whatever. But, hmmm, that’s funny, “Busch said sarcastically.

“That was a sudden thing,” Elliott said. “I think we have fun with this with Kevin (Harvick) putting up money and Kyle is a good sport. That’s not digging on anyone. It’s just fun. It’s about defeating him and we do it and have fun with him. “

Harvick promised before the race to donate $ 50,000 for Covid-19 assistance to each full-time Cup driver who finished in front of Busch. Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Gander RV & Outdoors, which sponsors the Truck Series, agreed to match Harvick’s pledge, bringing the total to $ 100,000 for pandemic assistance. Elliott, John Hunter Nemechek and Brennan Poole are three full-time trophy racers who are eligible to collect prizes.

The victory came six days after Busch destroyed Elliott in the Cup Series race in Darlington and two days after Elliott’s expensive decision to complain in the Coca-Cola 600, opened the door for Brad Kelowski to steal an almost certain victory from him. stay green.

“It was not suitable for Sunday but it was still a very good night,” Elliott said.

It was the first Elliott Truck Series race since 2017 when he won at Martinsville.

He said he wanted to race in Charlotte just to beat Busch.

“It’s about defeating Kyle and we do that so I guess I can stop now,” Elliott said.

Zane Smith finished third and Brett Moffitt finished fourth in the first truck race since February 21.

Busch has won 57 Truck Series races entering that night, which is the most racer in history, and seems to be a favorite. But he was never able to chase Elliott with a long green flag to close the race, no more than 0.3 seconds from the leader.

Busch started 16th and quickly moved to sixth before the splitter problem forced him to complain and dropped him back to 33rd. But the winners of 210 races in the top three NASCAR series quickly moved back to the fight with a strong second stage and took the lead in the 69th round.

But when Busch was pitted with 34 laps to go it dropped him all the way back to 23 and he could never get back the lead. Busch said the problem involved several front travel barriers which prevented the splitter from falling to the ground.

He said, “They just broke. First lap. “

Busch mentions the problems he caused himself.

“Throw it away,” Busch said. “Got six months to prepare and screw it up.”

This is Busch’s third race in three nights. He followed up his fourth place finish at the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday by winning the Xfinity Series race on Monday in overtime after passing Austin Cindric on the last lap.

For Elliott, victory ended a series of bad luck and should help his confidence lead to the second Cup race in four days at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Wednesday night.

“That’s really useful,” Elliott said. “But that does not improve the last two races on the Cup side. It is very important for daily life and this does not improve it.”
