As Chase Briscoe makes the leap to the Cup Series in 2021, Briscoe said a successful season would be learning as much as he can.
“Those guys are so good at what they do and it will be a huge jump,” Briscoe told The Racing Experts. “Just trying to become a better race car driver, doing all the little things right like pit road and restarts. All those things will be so different and trying to improve on those things.
“Obviously if we could make the playoffs, I feel like that would be a really successful year. We are going to try to go and win races, try to win every race, but realistically it is going to be hard to go do your first year but we are going to try to learn.”
Chase Briscoe will take the wheel of the Stewart-Haas Racing No. 14 Ford in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2021, the team announced Tuesday (Oct. 20th).
Briscoe will replace the retiring Clint Bowyer and will make his debut in NASCAR’s top-tier series in the 2021 Daytona 500.
At the time of publication, Briscoe is the only confirmed Rookie-of-the-Year candidate next season.
Briscoe is currently competing full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. He has won nine races driving Fred Biagi’s No. 98 Ford and will be eligible to race for the championship at Phoenix next month.
“I think with the road courses and the dirt race and even some of the ovals, I feel like we can go run up front,” Briscoe said. “The 14 car is going to have speed, so it is a matter of trying to put it all together.”
