Chase Elliott admitted he was surprised to hear he got pole from the team radio as he didn’t have a great lap time, just a good one. He went on to say it was nice for him to secure pole after a long time and thanked his team boss Alan Gustafson for his efforts. Chase Elliott went on to say that having the first pit stop for the final race on Saturday will be a huge advantage for him.

“When they told me the time, I thought someone might come there. To be honest, I was surprised that it happened so quickly. I thought I had a good lap but not a great lap. It’s nice to grab a pole – it’s been a while. Super proud of Alan (Gustafson, Crew Chief) and our team for continuing to push and coming back strong this weekend. Hopefully we can get the car right for tomorrow night,” said Chase Elliott

“The bigger thing than the grid position itself is the pit selection and the first pit stop. It’s a big deal and lends itself to getting you a lot of pit lane spots,” added Chase Elliott.
