Chase Elliott endured a rough stretch over the last month and a half, but he may have turned his fortunes around at the same track where he won his first NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series race.
Elliott, who hadn’t finished three of his last six races, ran 1-2 with Martin Truex Jr. for the last 50 laps Sunday in the GoBowling at The Glen race at Watkins Glen, New York. Elliott led the final 28 laps to pick up his second victory of the season. He topped Truex in this race last year as well.
“It’s nice to get out of the slide I was in,” Elliott said.
