“I’m sick and bored with it,” Gragson stated of Chastain’s driving model. “The man runs into everybody. When you’ve guys like Chase Elliott and different guys telling you to beat his a–, everyone seems to be simply sick of him.”

Chastain admitted he received tight in Turn 4.

“I received tight off 4 for positive,” Chastain stated. “Noah and I’ve a really related angle on the racetrack. We practice collectively, we put together collectively, we all know each little bit about one another. I positively crowded him out of 4.”

“A really large man as soon as informed me we’ve a ‘no push coverage’ right here at Trackhouse,” he added.
