Stock Car Scoop: Will Tempers Flare Between Chase Elliott & Kyle Larson at Vegas?

NASCAR heads to Sin City for a date at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where Kyle Larson will attempt to defend his race winner title and score a second straight victory after his triumph at Auto Club Speedway last week.

Will Sunday’s (March 6) race finally be the equalizer for the Next Gen car and the running order return to the way it’s looked in recent years? Will the disagreement between Hendrick Motorsports teammates Larson and Chase Elliott rear its head in dramatic fashion?

Adam Cheek and Bryan Nolen discuss these and more in a Sin City preview.

Not a fan of either or their owner. HOWEVER, I don’t think tempers will flare. Both are professionals and have personal interests to attend.
Wait until late in the playoffs, maybe Martinsville, for a flare-up.

No. Hendrick won’t allow it.


It’s over, move on. No way did Larson realize Chase was coming. He was to busy fighting off Logano, and his spotter didn’t even tell him Chase was coming because he wasn’t paying attention to Chase either. After watching films Chase is smart enough to realize what happened. It’s to neither ones benefit to continue this. How can anyone not enjoy how good these two racers are.
