What Chase Elliott says about his controversial NASCAR win in Canada


   Here are some of Chase Elliott's comments following his win Sunday in the NASCAR Truck Series race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Canada:

    "Obviously happy to get to Victory Lane. Like I told everybody else, I hate to do it like that, but not very often do you have trucks as fast as what we had today and have the day go as good as it did for us today, have our strategy play out. We had a couple curve balls thrown with the cautions and trying to judge guys stopping on the race track and we were able to overcome and have that caution right there and we were able to put ourselves in position. Had a terrible restart there at the end and got myself in a hole and I messed up again on the last lap trying to pass a guy getting into a corner. That never works," he said.

    "Had two ideas that didn't work out for me, and had an opportunity there getting into (Turn) 10. I felt like the 3 was sputtering. I felt like he was really, really close or he was out of gas or something and got to his right rear quarterpanel and tried to move him out of the way and unfortunately ended up putting him in the fence. That's not how I race. I think anybody who's ever raced with me before can testify that's not how I like to do things, but just glad we got to Victory Lane."
