Is Chase Elliott the next NASCAR Most Popular Driver?

first_imgWith the departure of Dale Earnhardt Jr. from the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the immediate question becomes, “Who will carry the banner of the sport going forward?” Jimmie Johnson, Elliott’s teammate at Hendrick Motorsports, is convinced that connection has already happened. “I think by this point, if people are still following along, they’re following along because of the person I am, I hope. I think that’s all you can ask for. I’ve been very clear and honest about me being me, wanting people to follow along for the right reasons, finding a true connection with someone.” “I really think Chase Elliott is our biggest tie to our grassroots NASCAR fan,” Harvick said Wednesday on Daytona 500 media day at Daytona International Speedway. “I’ve said this a number of times, but I feel like he’s one of the most important ingredients in what NASCAR racing does going forward, because of his family name. RELATED: Best quotes from Daytona 500 Media Day “He has the legacy that’s already been built in this sport by his dad (Bill Elliott) and he’s come into this sport with a great name and already proven that he’s going to be competitive. He has those Southeast NASCAR ties to those core fans that none of the rest of us will ever have, and he’s the guy.” “I don’t really think there is that hanging over me, to be honest with you,” Chase Elliott said. “I think, at this point, I’ve been maybe not in the NASCAR world too terribly long, but I’ve been racing long enough that people know who I am. Not ‘know who I am’ from that standpoint, but know the personality I have. They’ve kind of gotten to know me a little better.center_img Nor does Elliott, now in his third full year in NASCAR’s foremost series, feel the weight of his father’s legacy, founded in a career that saw him earn the nickname “Awesome Bill from Dawsonville.” Elliott, on the other hand would rather have fans relate to him for his own personality and performance. To 2014 series champion Kevin Harvick, the answer is a no-brainer. “I think he’s already won the 2018 Most Popular Driver Award,” Johnson quipped. “I think I just need to be me,” Elliott said. “It’s not really relevant to what I need to be focused on, right? I’ve encouraged people to pull for whoever they find value in pulling for, whatever they find a connection with. Whether that’s me or someone else, that’s their decision, right?”last_img read more

This Entire Mountain Now Has Guaranteed Protection After It Was Put Up for Sale By Private Owner

The stunning peak is home to an ancient pinewood forest that can be traced back to the end of the last ice age, as well as a temperate rainforest of native birchwood.RELATED: California is Finally Drought-Free After 7 Years and They’re Being Rewarded With a Butterfly BoomThe huge mound is teeming with Scottish wildlife including sea eagles, golden eagles, red squirrel, pine marten, otter and the UK’s smallest dragonfly.“The public reaction to our appeal has been absolutely fantastic,” said Woodland Trust Scotland director Carol Evans. “A huge thank you is due to everyone who contributed.“This is a rare chance for us to bring a whole mountain under our care. It already supports a magnificent area of ancient Caledonian pinewood and a Scottish rainforest of native birchwood.Steve Carter / SWNS“Perhaps even more exciting is the potential to manage these within a mosaic of their natural neighbors. Our aim is to see native woodland, montane scrub and open moorland habitats meshing naturally with each other from sea to sky.“That would encapsulate all that a restored landscape can be, not just in Torridon but across the Highlands,” she added.LOOK: Park Rangers Delighted to Find Elephant Seals Reclaimed Beach During Government ShutdownThe mountain covers about 3,800 acres, set in the Torridon landscape in the Wester Ross National Scenic Area.It has views and walking routes from the summit towards Skye and the Outer Hebrides.Steve Carter / SWNSIt also contains some of the world’s rarest lichens, bryophytes and liverworts, and is home to the UK’s smallest dragonfly – the black darter.The Woodland Trust Scotland said it is now looking to raise £3.4 million ($4.5 million) to spend on management.“With your help we can use our expertise to manage the woodland, combining careful woodland creation with natural regeneration and effective deer management,” said the organization.Plant Some Positivity By Sharing The Good News To Social Media…AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more
