Why Chase Elliott Will Win the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Title

Chase Elliott is tipped to win the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series title because of several factors. Motorsport punters on BetMGM who’ve been following his performances can agree that this is Elliott’s best season of his career. This article looks at why he is best placed to win the NASCAR Cup Series title this year.

He Has What It Takes

First, NASCAR is probably the biggest superstar in NASCAR capable of handling the pressure that comes with the most significant moments in the sport. His recent performances showed that he has the capacity to perform in the most challenging moments.

Recently, his back was against the wall, but he maneuvered the pressure packed and extreme race to secure a shot at the title for the first time in his career. The victory was his second straight playoff cutoff victory. His performances showed that Elliott has what it takes to rise to the occasion when things are challenging and highly competitive. He confirmed himself as a serious contender by fending off three other competitors vying for the same prize.

At 24, Elliott has been putting in notable performances in the sport before reaching 18 years. Some of his remarkable achievements include emerging the youngest winner in the Camping World Truck Series history.

He also put in a dominant performance in the Xfinity Series title. In the recent past, motorsport fans can remember vividly how Elliott has been part of the most impactful NASCAR memories. For instance, the nose-first dive into the Turn 1 wall at Charlotte Roval. Many might argue that he inherited some of his clout from his father, who is a Hall of Famer. His convincing performances in recent years show that he deserves to be at the top.

2020 Is His Best Season Ever

According to statistics, 2020 is the best season in Elliott’s career. He has managed four wins, 14 top-fives and has also emerged in the top 10 21 times. He has led in 1,083 laps, making him the second behind the season’s elite driver Kevin Harvick. In fact, he would have managed up to six wins were it not for several things that didn’t work in his favor.

Elliot had not won at the Phoenix yet. He had also not won on any similarly configured tracks. However, he won his first NASCAR Cup Series title at Phoenix Raceway. The win saw him join his father as champions of stock-car racing’s top division.

The win also saw him make history as the third-youngest Cup Series champion in the history of NASCAR. Others that managed the win at a younger age were Jeff Gordon, who did it at 24 years three months and eight days in 1995, and Bill Rexford, who was champion at 23 years.

He has proven that he is much more than a road course driver. The Hendrick Motorsports driver has managed to win at different courses proving that he is a well-rounded driver. Some of the notable wins include Dover, Kansas, Charlotte, Talladega, Roval at Charlotte, as well as the road course at Daytona, and the Martinsville short track.
