Chase Elliott comments on engine failure at Dover

CHASE ELLIOTT, NO. 9 HOOTERS GIVE A HOOT CAMARO ZL1 suffered an engine failure on lap 7 at Dover.  He finished the race in 38th.

WHAT DID YOU FEEL BEHIND THE WHEEL OF THE CAR?

“Yeah I just had an engine failure of some sort. Unfortunately, we don’t really know what it was just yet. It just quit running. It didn’t really seem like anything was off. We were just kind of making laps and then obviously had a failure. It’s an unfortunate way to start this round for sure.”

WE’VE TALKED BEFORE THAT YOU HAVE WINS AT ALL THREE TRACKS OF THIS ROUND. YOU’VE WON TALLADEGA IN THE SPRING. CAN YOU LOOK AT THAT AS MORE OF AN OPPORTUNITY THAN A WILD CARD NOW FROM THIS SITUATION?

“I don’t know where we’ll stack up. I assume we’ll have to win one of these next few weeks. If you ever make it to Homestead, you’re going to have to win down there. I guess it’s a good opportunity to practice here these next few weeks.”
