Chase Elliott will rest for a while after the tibia fracture and surgery he had. It is still unknown how long his absence will last, but many hope that Elliott will return as soon as possible. Chase Elliott received many messages of support after the whole situation.
He did not forget to thank his fans and all those who supported him. “In all seriousness, the support I’ve received over the last couple of days is far greater than I deserve. I want to thank everyone who has lended it over in any form!
Let’s give Josh Berry and the NAPA Racing team some love today!”- he tweeted.
Josh Berry and his race
Chase Elliott's replacement Josh Berry didn't have such a good day. In the beginning, it looked like he could get a positive result, but then problems started to appear.
“It was eventful, honestly. A couple of things in the first two stages go a little bit better for us, and I think we’re able to stay on the lead lap. We had some good pace a lot of the time, especially when we had some reasonably clear track.
We were pretty fast, for all things considered. There was still a lot to learn in those moments and in traffic,” Berry said. Problems with the throttle began to appear, which did not help him at all. “They were just telling me…we had an issue with the car there at the end that was kind of causing some issues with the throttle and the throttle body.
There were some times we were not getting a wide-open throttle, sometimes the throttle was hanging. It was messy there at the end, and I hate that reflects (in the finish) because I started to feel, at the end of the second stage, pretty comfortable,” Josh Berry said about the issue with his car.
