Man, you have to feel for Chase Elliott. The driver of the No. 9 car has led 70 laps on the day and he swept winning the first two Stages of Sunday’s Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
However, with just over 45 laps left, Elliott suffered a flat tire, caused by a broken valve stem. Elliott went for a spin and made contact with the wall.
While Elliott isn’t done for the day, this will severely hamper his shot at his first race win of 2020.
