Well, it didn’t take long for Chase Elliott’s post-race quotes after Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Bank of America Roval 400 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval to surface on official merchandise.
On Monday, the Chase Elliott Store began selling a new Christmas sweater-inspired t-shirt. On the shirt it says, “Wishing you a Merry Offseason and a Happy Christmas!”
The shirt also features a cartoon version of Elliott wearing a Santa hat as well as faux knitted snowflakes.
You can pre-order the new shirt, here. The shirt sells for $24.95. According to the Chase Elliott Store Twitter account, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the shirt will benefit Toys for Tots.
In Sunday’s race, Kevin Harvick got his revenge on Chase Elliott for their dust up in the Bristol Motor Speedway Night Race a few weeks ago. On lap 55, at the Roval, Harvick decided to drive through the rear bumper of Elliott’s car, which sent the No. 9 car spinning into the outside wall.
The crash caused significant damage to Elliott’s car, and it appeared the defending NASCAR Cup Series champion would be bounced from the 2021 Playoffs in the Round of 12.
At the end of the race, Elliott had secured his place inside the Round of 8 of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, while Harvick will now participate in the final four races of the season for pride.
When asked how he felt about Harvick missing out on the Playoffs, after their incident earlier in the race, Elliott said, “As far as Kevin [Harvick] goes, I just want to wish them a merry offseason and a happy Christmas.”
Now, there is iconic merchandise to accompany the iconic quote from Elliott.
