Chase Briscoe Faces Challenges Beyond Making NASCAR Playoffs

Chase Briscoe, who drives for SHR, is the only one of the team’s four drivers who could make the playoffs without winning a race. His teammates—Josh Berry, Ryan Preece, and Noah Gragson—need a win in the next 10 races to qualify. Briscoe wants to win too, but he could still make it based on points.

He said, “We’re trying to figure out how we’re going to provide for our families next year.” Briscoe is currently 17th in the standings, 27 points behind Bubba Wallace, who holds the last playoff spot based on points.

The announcement about SHR’s future has added challenges to Briscoe’s season. He has to focus on racing while also looking for a new team for next year. He started reaching out to other teams as soon as he found out about SHR’s plans.

But there’s another problem. Everyone at SHR knows they need new jobs by November. It’s hard to perform well on the track when you’re worried about your future. Some SHR team members have already started interviewing for new jobs.

Briscoe said, “We’re trying to figure out how we’re going to provide for our families next year, where we’re going to work next year, and on top of all that, how am I going to get a fast race car to the race track.”

Despite the challenges, Briscoe remains hopeful. He believes that success on the track will make it easier for him and his teammates to find new jobs. Winning races could lock them into the playoffs and show potential employers their value.

He said, “At the end of the day we can pout and whine about it, but the circumstances aren’t going to change. All that we can do is control what we can control.” Briscoe hopes to turn things around and get back to winning races in the next few weeks.
