Chase Briscoe: This Next Gen car, it is so weird how it is

Chase Briscoe, although he had a turbulent season, managed to achieve a good result in the last three races, and could soon be in the top 5. The season is long and everything is possible for him. Motorsport journalists Asked him if he thought his performance was “back on track”.


“Well, you still have to get to Phoenix. If you don’t get to Phoenix (the championship race), it doesn’t matter how good you are. “If you had asked me that four or five weeks ago, I would have said no way.

But we got back to what we were doing at the beginning of the year and I feel like we have our speed back. Hopefully, we can continue this”. - Briscoe said for motorsport.

Next-Gen cars

With the arrival of the Next-Gen cars, many things have changed.

Now the competition is much bigger and there are more drivers in the game for the title. It is also difficult to predict who could end up on the podium by the end of the season, which Briscoe is aware of. This is what gives him the motivation and strength that everything is possible at this moment.


“I don’t think there is a championship favorite. There are a lot of guys who are capable,” he said. “This Next Gen car, it is so weird how it is. One week you can be really good and the next week you can be way, way off.

“We just have to continue to get better and put ourselves in a position to keep trying to run up front. If we do that and get to Phoenix, I am confident we can go there and battle. It is just a matter of getting there.

“If you aren’t one of the final four guys, it doesn’t matter how good you are there”. Briscoe didn't have such a big problem switching from old cars to Next Gen cars, unlike some veterans who find it much harder.

“Truthfully, with the IMSA stuff I’ve done, it’s kind of similar to that feel, so I wouldn’t say that I’ve had as much muscle memory to relearn or forget about switching from the old car,” he said.

“I haven’t had any issues – knock on wood – but it is different, I think, for the guys who have done it for a long time and are trying to retrain themselves with a lot of those things." The season is long, and Chase will try to achieve what he set out to do.
