You think Chase Elliott had that Darlington crash on his mind when he took the checkered flag in front of Kyle Busch in Tuesday’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Charlotte?
After crossing the finish line, Elliott got out of his No. 24 truck, grabbed the checkered flag and performed Busch’s own victory celebration — the bow.

The 24-year old Elliott, who has been voted Most Popular driver in each of the past two seasons, has made a career of being calm, cool and collected. However, he has shown some real fire on television since NASCAR returned from the coronavirus shutdown. After being crashed by Busch at Darlington, Elliott displayed a middle finger as Busch drove back by his destroyed No. 9 car.
Then on Tuesday, he took one last jab at Busch after winning the Truck race.
