Chase Elliott was closing in on Kevin Harvick with 11 laps left in Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Bank of America Roval 400 at the Charlotte Roval, but was unable to payback Harvick for an accident earlier in the race.
But I think Elliott is okay with it, as Harvick overcooked his brakes heading into turn one and plowed hard into the outside wall.

The crash was a scary hit, but Harvick was able to walk away from the fiery heap of metal.
This will end Harvick’s hopes of advancing from the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs Round of 12.
Earlier in the race, on lap 55, Harvick seemingly got into Elliott on purpose.
