Can Chase Elliott live up to the expectations?
Chase Elliott comes to Daytona with three straight top-10 completions. He’s not completed superior to seventh in his last seven races.

Despite the fact that the group won the subsequent Charlotte race. Since Bristol, he’s had seven top-10 completions and six completions outside the best 10.
NBC reports, “I think it’s going to be a fun challenge for everyone,” he said of having no practice before Sunday’s inaugural Cup race on the road course.
“I’ve never entered a race like that where you literally just have no idea what to expect. Road racing, in my opinion, is a lot about brake-markers and a lot about visual aids and these nuances around the track that you can see with your eyes to help with your hands and your feet do the right things at the right times.
Heck, I have no idea where I need to stop on Turn 1 on Sunday; or (Turn) 2 or (Turn) 3 and all the way back around to the start/finish line.”
Chase Elliott believes Kyle Busch will the one challenging driver. “The one guy I look at that really is Kyle Busch, having come off that 24-hour event this year,” Elliott says.
He is not seen as a road course winner by the experts. Although, Chase Elliott won a year ago’s race at the Charlotte Roval, the latest street course race.
