Ross Chastain Quote

“We’re headed into the first playoff race of the NASCAR Xfinity Series season in 2020. It’s been a crazy year with this pandemic, and we’ve been juggling no practice, and no fans, which stinks. We will be starting our playoffs this Saturday in the No. 10 Chevy Accessories car with the red banners, which means we are in the playoffs, as you all know. I can’t wait to get out there. The last time I actually got to race there in the Xfinity Series (playoffs), we went to victory lane, but that was a long time ago. Last year when Elliott Sadler made his final start in the Xfinity Series, I was in the PRN booth calling the race. That’s very humbling, and I love those guys, but I want to be in the racecar, and I get to do that this Saturday. We’re looking to kick our playoff run with a win.”
