Chase Elliott Argues vs. contender Kevin Harvick “Crappy A** Parts” NASCAR Rant: “Most parts are pretty much the same”

Bristol celebrated the day many drivers were disqualified from competing for the championship. However, some of these drivers were unlucky. One of them was Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kevin Harvick, who spoke out against NASCAR spec parts directly to the media. Subsequently, Chase Elliott who qualified for the next round of playoffs was heard opposing Harvick’s comments on the matter.

Harvick originally stated, “I’m sure it’s just bad race car parts as we’ve seen so many times. They didn’t fix anything. It’s kind of like safety items. We just let it go and go.” Harvick saw himself out of match fray after his tire fell off the car due to a wrong lug during one of his stops at Bristol Motor Speedway. Harvick has been wildly outspoken about other safety issues in front of the media.

In response to Harvick’s comments, Elliott argued, “Most of the parts are pretty much the same. I think we’ve gotten lucky the last couple of weeks. Hopefully we won’t run out of luck.” Elliott appears to disagree with the concerns raised by Harvick, and instead offered his own justification regarding the problem other teams are facing.
