NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Chase Briscoe says he is super excited about entering the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2021.
It was announced on Tuesday, that Briscoe will take over the No.14 Ford Mustang at Stewart Haas Racing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series from Clint Bowyer. Speaking to Paddock Eye during a Zoom conference call on Tuesday following the announcement, Briscoe said:
I am super excited about next year but truthfully I am not even thinking about next year until we get this year done. There is still a championship to win and three more races to try to win. That is the main focus. We will focus on the Cup stuff after this year is over. I think I have learned quite a bit this year but there are going to be so many things that are so different. Every little detail you have to do 100 percent right on the Cup days. You can’t get away with a mistake here or there like you can on the Xfinity deal. I feel like I have learned a lot and my confidence has been raised a ton this year but obviously that will probably get humbled quite a bit next year moving up. I am just trying to take as much as we can and really trying to focus on these playoffs and even learning from the pressure of how these playoffs work being in that Championship 4 I think will be a great teaching tool for the future for how to respond to that pressure of being in a championship race and closing out these playoffs
