The new NASCAR season is one of the most exciting. Teams are stronger than ever, good drivers and quality staff are just some of the reasons why we have an interesting season ahead of us. Sunday’s race at Phoenix Raceway brought us a lot of curiosity.
Ross Chastain finished second in his first season at Trackhouse Racing; “That was so much fun to get to race like that at this level,” Chastain said, as quoted by motorsport “Trackhouse Racing believes in me.
These people, they believed in me early in the season whenever stuff wasn’t going great. If we can keep putting these together, that’s so cool to race with Tyler and Chase. “That’s everything I’ve ever wanted.
… We came up one spot short. But I’m so happy”.
Tyler Reddick on his race
Tyler Reddick is also pleased after finishing third. He especially praised his pit crew. “It was a lot of fun. Great to claw back from the hiccup we had earlier in the race,” Reddick said.
“Everyone on this team did a really good job all day. One little miscue that took us from second to 12th (a long pit stop due to an issue on the left-side of car). “My pit crew did an amazing job, had a good restart at the end to put ourselves in position.
Nice way to recover from a mistake that late in the race – battling for the win. Great day”. He also described what it all looked like: “I thought we got a good launch considering all things going right there into (Turn) 1.
I know about how deep I could drive it in Turn 1 all day,” he said. “I thought I got pretty good heat in the tires. I still overstepped it. I couldn’t have drove it any deeper than I did. “I still thought I was going to get him in the fence. Chase was able to drive it off in there, clear high (and) take the lead”.
