Ross Chastain on Racing at Las Vegas: “It feels like it’s been forever since we’ve raced these trucks,” said Chastain. “We had a solid performance in our CarShield Chevrolet in Canada.
“Las Vegas is a special track to me, so I’m definitely looking forward to getting back on track this week. We had a good truck here earlier this year, but I feel that we’ve come a long way with this Niece Motorsports program since then.”
The Playoffs: Chastain enters Friday’s race second in the driver point standings; 28 points above the cut line. Eight drivers are currently in playoff contention. After Friday night’s race, two drivers will be cut from the playoff field.
Chastain at Las Vegas: Chastain has four NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In those four starts he has earned two top-10 finishes and three top-15 finishes.
Las Vegas Motor Speedway was the site of Chastain’s first NASCAR XFINITY Series win. Chastain started fifth and dominated; leading 180 of 200 laps on his way to the win.
Chastain also has three Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
On the Truck: CarShield continues to support Chastain and the No. 45 Chevrolet.
