Five Problems With Chase Elliott’s First Win That NASCAR Fans Can’t Ignore

 

It may have taken two and half seasons and a handful of moments where he came up short, but Chase Elliott finally nabbed his first ever Cup Series victory Sunday at Watkins Glen. The win was made more impressive due to the fact that he is one of the first drivers to capture their first Cup Series win at a road course and that he held off defending series champion, Martin Truex Jr to accomplish this.

With that being said, not all that glitters is gold and there a quite a few faults in Chase Elliott’s first career Cup Series win. While those problems aren’t as big as they would have been if he had won after a rain delay or a fuel gamble, the problems that his win does present are not going to be particularity easy to ignore either.
