Ross Chastain Quote

“Daytona is this weekend. I’m pumped to get back home to Florida and run a new track. We’ll be on the road course with the new chicane off turn four that nobody has ever raced on. NASCAR has never raced on this layout at all. It will be a learning curve for the whole field. We start fourth, so that’s going to be tough for me, because I’m around a bunch of guys that are really fast on road courses and have a lot of experience. Although we kept up at road America, it’s an even bigger challenge now trying to keep up and win this weekend at Daytona. I feel up for the challenge.

We have a new sponsor on board – the Moose Fraternity, the Loyal Order of the Moose. I got to meet some of the great folks up at Mooseheart and learn more about what the Moose is all about. I got to see some kids and see what they do there on their farm. Now as we travel to Florida, maybe we will see some more Moose Lodge locations. Go to if you want to find out more about what they are, because a lot of people don’t know. That’s why they are sponsoring in NASCAR – they want you to know. I’ve joined, and my dad has joined. You should join too.”
