Busch Clash Ends With A Tangle Between Friends

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney may be good friends off the track, but that didn’t keep them from tangling on the final lap of Tuesday night’s Busch Clash at Daytona Int’l Speedway. Elliott crossed the line as the runner-up, while the last-corner spin relegated Blaney to 13th. Blaney didn’t necessarily cast blame on Elliott, but it didn’t mean he enjoyed the final outcome, either. In spite of his friendship with Elliott, Blaney said those thoughts didn’t cross his mind down the stretch. If you don’t go in there trying to win the race, what are you there for? Elliott did have a conversation with Blaney after the race in an attempt to smooth over the situation. That’s the sure sign of not doing it on purpose … is when you don’t win the race after wrecking somebody.
