Can we chase down an Asteroid

There may be yet another future use for SpaceX’s huge Mars-colonization rocket. it could be used to chase down the interstellar asteroid Oumuamua, now this asteroid pass by us last month and is currently flying away at 93,600 km/h. now nothing we have could do this but with a gravity assist from Jupiter or the Sun , the rocket could in effect chase down Oumuamua, but even so it would still take years to catch up, but the main goal would show that we can still build rockets that can go even faster than current one.
