Chase Elliott is known for his calm demeanor, but his emotional side was on display at Daytona after being spun out on Lap 97.

Michael McDowell was responsible for Elliott spinning out, and Elliott had some choice words on the radio for the driver of the No. 95 car following the accident.

Elliott finished 22nd at the Coke Zero 400, while McDowell finished 4th.

If the playoffs started today, Elliott would be in the field, but he is still searching for his first career NASCR Cup Series win, and he is far from a lock to make the playoffs.

Elliott is one of the top young drivers in the sport, and his competitive side was on display during his disappointing finish at Daytona.
