Description The Bank of America ROVAL 400 marks the 3rd race hosted at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL in Cup Series history. The 2.32-mile road course located in Concord, North Carolina consists of 17-turn course that combines the high-banks of the traditional oval with a infield road course. Sunday’s Bank of America ROVAL 400 will be the final round of 12 in the Cup Series Playoffs. As a result, this makes this a pressure high for teams to preform to move on to the next round. This will be the third race held at the Charlotte ROVAL with Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott being the only drivers to win at the ROVAL. Tune in Sunday, October 11th to see which driver will conquer the ROVAL and will move onto the round of 8 in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.
Elliott’s win in the Bank of America ROVAL 400 Playoff race was his fourth consecutive road course victory, a mark of excellence shared only with NASCAR Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon, who won six straight road course races. It’s his second consecutive win in this race and Sunday’s trophy is an automatic qualifier for Elliott into the three-race Playoff Round of 8, which begins next week at Kansas Speedway.
Elliott’s No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet tied teammate William Byron for most laps led – a race best 26 laps on the day including the final 18, as he held off runner-up Joey Logano by a healthy 3.895-seconds to earn his third win of the year.
