He is also excited about his first career pole position which is very special for him.
“Outside of Indianapolis, this is definitely the circuit closest to my hometown. It’s only three or four hours. I have a lot of people here so I’m hoping to put on a show tomorrow. Yeah, I mean it’s cool to be on the pole, isn’t it? I say it all the time, to be able to say you’re a Cup Series winner and now a pole winner is really special. said Chase Briscoe.
Chase Briscoe added that there is a lot more to putting in a performance like this at an inaugural event and what matters to him is the actual race, he feels like he didn’t drive well this year and with a car that was fast enough to make it to the top, he hopes to win the race as well.
“Doing it at a launch event is even cooler. That’s what pays the points and what you came here to race, not qualify for. Qualifying is just the icing on the cake. I think we have a good car capable of winning tomorrow, which is something I haven’t done well enough as a driver this year. Hopefully we can put everything together tomorrow.” concluded Chase Briscoe.
With a pole position for the Enjoy Illinois 300 and a 13thth 1st overall, a win at this distance will do Chase Briscoe a lot of good.
