Ross Chastain on Racing at Phoenix: “We had a solid points day at Martinsville, which has hopefully put us in a good position heading into this week’s race,” said Chastain. “We saw in Martinsville that no one is safe; so, we are going to do everything we can to have a solid race, stay out of trouble, and put this CarShield Chevrolet in contention for the win.”
The Playoffs: Chastain enters Friday’s race third in the driver point standings, 20 points ahead of fifth place. Following the race at ISM Raceway, the playoff field will be trimmed to four drivers that will compete for the championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
