Dale Earnhardt Jr. is on board with Elliott’s anti-stalking agenda as the heated battle enters the final stretch

Chase Elliott and Ryan Blaney are known to be really good friends both on and off the track. However, recently, the Penske Driver team put out a video against Chase Elliott on his social media. The video was so funny that it caught the attention of former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

The son shared his story with comments stating, “This is beautiful sports marketing. Even @CHASEELLIOTT9 agrees.”

The 30-second video that Blaney posted talks about how Elliott ate chicken wings with a fork and knife. Then he also mentions how Elliot lied that he likes chicken wings when the truth is he doesn’t like them at all. Obviously, it was all in humour. They are also really good friends in real life.

Why did Blaney publish this video?

The campaign has most likely been published, due to ongoing voting to decide who will be crowned the most popular driver this season.

FORT WORTH, TX – NOVEMBER 2: Ryan Blaney, driver of the No. 12 Wabash National Ford, stands on the grid during Veterans Tribute Qualifying Day fueled by the Texas Lottery for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup AAA Series Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on November 02, 2019, in Fort Worth, Texas.

The award is awarded after multiple rounds of fan voting have finished. Right now Elliott is in the top 10 of the highest votes and it looks like Blaney wants to make sure Elliott misses out on the award. Imagine if Elliot’s sponsor, Hooters got wind of this and found out that Elliot actually hates eating wings. Not all of them will be happy about that. Obviously, they wouldn’t bring him down for such a trivial issue. But given that the most prestigious drivers’ awards are presented by Hooters, they can pull a huge joke in the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Championship.

The video was so funny that even if a Hendrick Motorsports star watched the campaign, he wouldn’t be able to hold his laughter. What would be more fun, if Elliot decided to take revenge with his own pun-focused Blaney diss clip?
