How tough do you have to be to tame the track that’s to tough to tame. You have to look at Chase Briscoe, and wife Marissa for the answer. The race the easiest part for Briscoe as he would find himself wheel to wheel, door to door, slideways at times with Kyle Busch over the last 10 laps during the NASCAR Xfinity Series – Toyota 200 at Darlington Speedway.

Briscoe would overpower Busch for the emotional victory, on Wednesday Chase and Marissa learned the day before they lost the baby they were expecting to welcome later in the year.

“This is for my wife. This has been the hardest week I’ve ever had to deal with,” Briscoe said shortly after climbing out of the car with tears running down his face. “When I took the lead, I was crying in my car. This is more than a race win. This is the biggest win of my life after the toughest day of my life. To be able to beat the best there is, is so satisfying.”

“God was driving the car the last 8 or 9 laps – I was emotionally a wreck.”
