Earlier, Chase Elliott was part of a contingent of NASCAR drivers who made a trip to New York. Over there, he and his peers had a chance to visit the New York Stock Exchange. To make the experience even better, they were present for the ringing of the closing bell. Afterward, Elliott appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan to talk about a variety of subjects. During the course of the talk, he spoke about driving around the streets of New York.

He told the Live With Kelly and Ryan Show, “Funny you bring that up because, some of the other drivers and I were cruising around town last night. We’re like, ‘Man! I’m not sure I’m brave enough to drive in the city’.

Some of us do, I have a couple of closer friends than others for sure. We don’t all like each other. We were giving them props, like, ‘Man! These people know what they’re doing.’ Driving down these side streets, the mirrors are barely missing other cars’ mirrors. You have to be aggressive.”

What lies ahead for Chase Elliott and the rest of the drivers?

January is coming to an end, and the 2023 NASCAR Cup Season will be upon us soon. Without a doubt, Elliott and the other Cup Series drivers will be hard at work preparing for the new season. This year’s campaign will be a big one, as a few drivers will be competing in new teams. This includes the likes of Kyle Busch, Tyler Reddick, a returning Jimmie Johnson, and many more.

Joey Logano will head into this campaign with a massive target on his back. Understandably so, because he is the reigning Cup Series champion, and every other driver will be gunning for the title this year. It will also be interesting to see how the drivers perform on new tracks like the Chicago street track and the returning North Wilkesboro Speedway.
