Ross Chastain on Racing at Talladega: “Talladega is definitely a wild card in this playoff,” said Chastain. “There’s a lot that’s out of our control, so we’re going to focus on the things we can control. I know this team will bring a fast CarShield Chevrolet Silverado. We’ll do our best to stay out of trouble and put ourselves in contention at the end of the race. I enjoy superspeedway racing and am looking forward to Saturday’s race.”

The Playoffs: Chastain enters Saturday’s race third in the driver point standings.

Chastain at Talladega: Saturday’s race will mark Chastain’s fourth NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series start (NGOTS) start at Talladega Superspeedway.  In his three previous starts, Chastain has two top-15 finishes, with his best finish of third coming in 2013.

The Alva, Florida-native has five NASCAR XFINITY Series starts to his credit at the 2.66-mile track.

In addition, Chastain has three Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts at Talladega Superspeedway.

On the Truck: CarShield continues to support Chastain and the No. 45 Chevrolet.

CarShield visited victory lane with Chastain and the No. 45 team earlier this year at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.
