No, and honestly that’s why I like him. To be honest, I wish we had more of that. Yeah, listen, I’ve always had a lot of respect for Martin. We’ve always gotten along well. Probably never spoke more than 20 words to each other in my nine years and we don’t have to. There’s always been a mutual respect there

Chase Elliott said at Iowa.

The No:9 Chevy driver asserted that he always likes to have such relationship in a professional atmosphere. He went onto highlight how he respects people showup and focus on the task at hand in NASCAR keeping their head down.

That’s the kind of relationship I’m all about as it pertains to a professional atmosphere. Somebody who shows up, keeps his head down and does his job and seems to focus on the things that matter. I think we can all respect and admire that.

Could make good pace there at the end of a run with our NAPA Chevy, just needed to be a little closer I think to keep the pressure on and keep things rolling. Anyway, I was proud of the effort and felt like we had a really good car and were right there in the fight.

Chase Elliott said.

While Chase Elliott is in fine form and in the fight for the championship with a win, he would also be hoping to see the veteran Martin Truex Jr. getting a win and securing a playoff spot like many fans in the NASCAR community.
