Chase Briscoe who sports the No.14 Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing contending as a full-time racer in the Cup Series and drives the No.08 Ford Mustang for SS Green Light Racing as a part-time contender in the Xfinity Series finds the 1.5Mile long Charlotte Motor Speedway track really different compared to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Kansas Speedway.

He has had a pretty decent season so far with a victory at the Ruoff Mortgage 500 at Phoenix Raceway and two top 10s with six top 20s and his own fair share of DNFs too. Briscoe has yet to acquire a victory at the Coca-Cola 600 starting only for the second time at the track.

However, his Xfinity Series stats at the track involve just a P6 finish in 2021 in four starts, although he managed to acquire one victory at the same track but in the Bank of America Roval 400. He will be paying tribute to U.S. Army Sergeant Larry Robert Bowman as a part of the NASCAR Memorial Day Weekend of Salutes.

Chase Briscoe was questioned about his previous outings at other 1.5mile tracks helping him out with this week at Charlotte and he answered that he feels extremely good about the Las Vegas race but unfortunately got left out due to a loose wheel and added that all the Ford teams struggled at Kansas so he can’t make anything out of it.

“At Vegas, we qualified fourth and ran up front, and then we had a tire go down, but I felt really, really good about our mile-and-a-half stuff. Then we go to Kansas and that was a real struggle for us. It wasn’t just a struggle for us, it was obviously a struggle for all the Ford teams, so I’m not sure what to expect,” said Chase Briscoe.

He was further questioned about his testings at the track to which he responded that he ran a different configuration of the Next-Gen car during each testing and due to the eccentricity of the track he is not sure what to expect from this week’s run during the Coca-Cola 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“Every time we were testing at Charlotte, we were running different packages. I’ve never run the current package at Charlotte. This track is unique and sensitive. But yeah, I don’t know, I don’t know what to expect for the 600,” concluded Chase Briscoe.

With Chase Briscoe currently standing 14th with 300 points in the standings, his Phoenix Raceway victory will guarantee a spot in the playoffs.
