Chase Elliott showed that his sprained ankle is a thing of the past. He cruised to his fourth career Busch Pole Award. He will be lining up next to another Hendrick car on the first row with Alex Bowman.
Chase has yet to secure his first career victory, but is getting closer and closer as each week passes by. As we all know, pole means nothing at Daytona. Three out of Elliott’s four career pole awards have come at this track, so winning here will not come easy.
While driving a long race with a sprained ankle is no easy task, Elliott believes he is ready to go after being x-rayed at the infield care center.
“I didnt really want to do that, so I’ve been trying to draw as least amount of attention as possible to that,” Elliott said. “But it’s all good, had a little ankle sprain, but we are good and ready to go.”
“So we’ll just have to see. This race is a whole different ballgame, but to have speed in our Chevrolet is nice, and to have Hooters for their first race of the season on the pole is cool, too. Looking forward to Saturday night.”
Will Chase secure his first victory at Daytona? Or will Larson sweep the weekend? All I can say for sure is, we are in store for one crazy finish. If tonight’s MECS race compares at all to what we saw in last night’s xfinity race, we are in for a treat.
