Chase Elliott on playoff chances and goals for the rest of the season

There is no doubt that Chase Elliott will have a difficult task until the end of the season to ensure his playoff spot. As a result of his snowboarding accident and subsequent surgery, he has been unable to participate in the first six races.

As a result of Elliott returning to Martinsville, he finished the race in 10th position. Elliott expressed his great desire to be able to reach the play-off, but he is aware that it will not be an easy task. “I think we’re a deserving team to be a part of the playoffs and I think we’re a strong enough team to make a run and race for a championship,” Elliott said, as quoted by motorsport.com “We all want to win as a group, it’s not because of my absence that we want to win any more than we already did.

But we certainly recognize points are probably aren’t going to work from the driver’s side – certainly we could points-in from the owner’s side – but from a driver’s side, it’s going to be tough to do without out a win”.

This will be a great opportunity for him and he is confident that he will be able to achieve a positive outcome at Talladega. He is ready for any challenge and looks forward to being able to contribute to the achievement of his team's goals.

“I think it’s more just recognizing the job at hand and what we’re going to have to do to be a part of the show. Having that goal set in front of you I think is kind of fun,” Elliott said. “It’s very simple and pretty straightforward what we have to go do.

We’re really embracing it as a group and I’ve embraced it on my end. I’m excited about the challenge, really. It’s kind of unique and fun – you either win and you’re in or you don’t and you fail. I kind of like it”.
