Chastain’s Year: Who Needs a Map When You’re This Lost…and Found?

The Detours and Pit Stops of Chastain’s 2023 Journey!

Ross Chastain, Trackhouse Racing’s finest and NASCAR’s version of a maze runner. This man’s 2023 has been the ultimate ‘navigation test’. Remember those old GPS devices that’d keep saying “Recalculating” every time you took a wrong turn? That’s Chastain’s year in a nutshell. But, just like your stubborn uncle who refuses to ask for directions, he’s finding his way!

The Floridian wonder, last season, gave us a whiff of his immense talent with two wins, one on the curvy roads of the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) and the other at Talladega Superspeedway. If that wasn’t enough, 15 Top-5 finishes! Someone was on fire, and it wasn’t just the tires!

However, 2023 has been…well, let’s say different. It’s like deciding to go on a road trip without a plan, meeting some excellent truckers, getting lost a few times, discovering a new diner with perfect pie, and then realizing you left your favorite sunglasses at the last gas station. There have been highs – like that fabulous pole position at Nashville, which he gloriously turned into his only win. Then some moments left us wondering if Chastain’s car was moonlighting as a merry-go-round.

Yet, with every twist and turn (or left turn, this is NASCAR after all), he has shown resilience and the uncanny ability to recalibrate and set his sights forward. No race was just a race. Each was a chapter in the gripping novel that is Chastain’s 2023.

And while we’ve enjoyed the journey and the “will he, won’t he” drama, one thing is clear. Chastain doesn’t need a working GPS. He’s making his path, and we’re all here, munching popcorn, enjoying the show.

That’s what makes NASCAR the gem it is. It’s not just about the destination; it’s the ride, the hiccups, the laughs, and the stories you gather along the way. And in 2023, Ross Chastain has given us one heck of a story. Keep navigating, Chastain; we’re riding shotgun!
