Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway will be the next challenge for NASCAR drivers. Chase Briscoe, one of the best this season, is ready to give everything in Kansas. “I think we were trying things that we thought were going to be better based on sim and what was being shown on paper, and now we know that isn’t the case.
We were able to go back to some of what had been working for us and I think that really showed in some of the more recent races we’ve run, like Charlotte,” Chase Briscoe said. Briscoe will try to make as few mistakes as possible.
“For the most part, Kansas isn’t much different than what it has been compared to some of these tracks that race so differently with the new car. We’ll be running the fence all day and just hoping not to make a mistake that takes us out of it,” Chase Briscoe continued.
It's as if they could have assumed a slightly worse performance in Darlington, but there are high expectations for the next two races. “Thankfully, the points situation is much better than I expected, but we’ve still got to have two solid races.
I felt like Darlington was where we’d struggle the most out of these first three tracks. The plan for Kansas and Bristol is to get some stage points and be there at the end,” says Chase Briscoe. Ambitions are not at the highest level, but they know that points are necessary.
“We don’t necessarily need a win, even though that would make it a lot easier, we just need to have a really good points day. Wouldn’t be a bad thing for a couple of guys to have problems again, but we just need to do our job and we’ll be OK,” he concluded.
