Chase Elliott had some less-than-kind things to say about Michael McDowell immediately after the two came together during the Coke Zero 400 Powered by Coca-Cola. Though the driver of the No. 95 doesn’t quite understand why.
McDowell, who Elliott called “the biggest dumbass I’ve ever seen in my life” after their crash at Daytona International Speedway, called out the Hendrick Motorsports driver on Twitter for actually causing the accident himself.
Despite Elliott claiming he was taken out, you clearly can see his No. 24 cutting across the nose of McDowell’s car on the back straight.
The 21-year-old has been online since McDowell posted his tweet, as he retweeted Autoweek’s Matt Weaver a few hours after, though he hasn’t responded to the Leavine Family Racing driver’s quip.
Maybe he took McDowell’s advice and watched the replay.
