Was it a fluke?
While it may not have seemed like one, especially since it came in the second round of the playoffs and was at one of the toughest tracks on the playoff circuit, there is no denying that there was a chain of events that lead to Chase Elliott’s win at Dover. In fact, his victory doesn’t feel the same when you look at the factors surrounding the win.
Of course a win is a win and it does guarantee him a spot in the final eight in a few weeks, but don’t take this as sign of Elliott’s chances to win the title or even make it to the final four. Maybe some will disagree with that assessment and take comfort in the fact that it was the second win of his career ,but this is why the win means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things.
