Well it certainly looked like Chase Elliott had his Chevrolet all tuned up and couldn't be caught.

Led 80 out of 90 laps.

Only Truex in his Toyota could even get close to his back bumper.

Maybe it was the driving skills and not the engine?

And how about the shrub? Didn't he put on quite a side show yesterday? LMAO :-)

I was pretty impressed. Elliott had a virtually mistake free race.

He was definitely much better in the S's than Truex, but Truex seemed better in the hard braking areas. It certainly wasn't about more power.

The rest of the Chevys were pretty mediocre.

I enjoyed seeing shrub's car made into a pin ball!
There were a couple of other moments like that among others.

7time's new crew chief didn't have a great day - pitting when no one else did just past halfway. There was a reason no one else pitted then. I'll give him a break if there was a problem that wasn't made known requiring the stop.

I'm quite proud of the young Elliot. Back to back Glen wins and he won Talladega this year. He is coming into his own now. I hope he can equal or surpass his dad's numbers.
Pinball indeed. There's shrub a big heaping bowl of karma.
7 time didn't appreciate young Blaney. They're all trying real hard since the chase is getting near. With the tempers flairing right now would be a good time to go to Bristol.
