Chase Elliott finished seventh in the Food City 500, which kept a perfect streak of top-15s at Bristol Motor Speedway alive.
Elliott entered the weekend with the best average finish (during the past three years) on this track. He extended that advantage and will be a good value when the series returns in August. He finished fourth in this race last year and was 15th in the summer. Apr 24 - 6:17 PM

With 22 minutes remaining in the first practice session for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, Chase Elliott spun coming out of turn four.

Elliott spun down nearly the entire straightaway and flat-spotted his tires, but did not contact either wall. The No. 24 was 15th on the speed chart at the time of the incident.

Chase Elliott finished ninth in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, which was his third consecutive top-10.

When Elliott has missed in recent weeks, it has not been by much. His worst result in the past 11 races is a 14th—and that came on the unpredictable wild card track of Daytona International Speedway.

Late in the first practice session for the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, Chase Elliott tagged the wall exiting turn two and then spun hard into the inside wall down the backstretch.

This was the first lap of Elliott’s first mock qualifying run. He destroyed his Chevrolet and will have to roll out a backup.

Chase Elliott complained during the weekend that he could not figure out Martinsville Speedway despite asking for advice from all of the Hendrick Motorsports drivers—active and retired. He deciphered it in race trim to finish third in the STP 500.

Elliott faded from his outside pole starting position, but that might have been by design in order to save his tires and brakes. Once he reestablished in the lead pack, he circled among the top five for more laps than anyone else in the field.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Chase Elliott won the Alpha Energy Solutions 250, his second victory in 12 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races.

It is his second top-10 finish in 2017. Christopher Bell (third) posted his second top-10 finish in three races at MS. Noah Gragson (fourth) was the highest finishing rookie. Johnny Sauter leads the NCWTS point standings by 4 points over Christopher Bell.

In addition to his usual duties behind the wheel of the No. 24 Chevrolet SS in the Cup Series, Chase Elliott will drive the No. 23 Chevrolet Silverado for GMS Racing in Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.

It will mark the 21-year-old driver’s second start in the No. 23 truck this season. He also competed at Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier this season, finishing fifth. Elliott’s Truck Series résumé includes one win, seven top-five finishes and nine top-10s in 12 starts. He earned the pole, led 109 laps and finished second last fall at Martinsville Speedway.-Hendrick Motorsports

Chase Elliott finished 10th in the Auto Club 400, which was his 10th consecutive top-15 finish stretching back to last fall’s Hellman’s 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Tenth was a far cry from the victory that many believed he would score, but consistency is establishing this sophomore in the playoff contention. As soon as pundits ignore him, he will win when it’s least expected.
Mar 26 - 9:27 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Auto Club 400 with a speed of 187.480 mph.

Elliott was second-fastest in the first session. The team seems to have found whatever they lacked on Friday. He rolls off the grid from the seventh row, which puts him in a bit of a sweet spot in terms of place-differential potential. Elliott should move up and combine points for a top-10 finish with those for advancement. With a little luck, Elliott will contend for the win.
Mar 25 - 3:29 PM

Chase Elliott had the second fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Auto Club 400 with a speed of 186.843 mph.

That means he finally found some speed in his Chevrolet. He was only 12th fastest in Friday’s practice and missed advancing to the final round of time trials for the first time this season; he qualified 13th. He was not particularly strong during long runs with the 12th-quickest time, but the No. 24 team still has one session to work on that.
Mar 25 - 1:10 PM

Chase Elliott spent the majority of the Camping World 500 inside the top 10, but a poor restart at the end dropped him to 12th in the final rundown.

That snapped a two-race streak of top-10s at Phoenix and a two-race streak of top-fives this season. He should take some consolation in the fact that two-mile tracks have been kind to him since Auto Club Speedway is next on the schedule. He should also be encouraged by his fourth-best average running position of 4.42 at Phoenix International Raceway.
Mar 20 - 12:20 AM

Chase Elliott earned an eighth-place finish last spring at Phoenix International Raceway and was ninth in the fall, which gives him a perfect record of top-10s on this track.

Elliott has gotten off to a remarkable start this season as well, and those two factors should combine for a great run in this Sunday’s Camping World 500. He is expensive in salary cap games, however, and should be balanced with other marquee racers like Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch in contests that allow for multi-entry.
Mar 18 - 2:45 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice session with a speed of 135.977 mph.

Elliott was also fastest in the first session on Friday with a speed of 137.101. He stumbled just a little in qualification and lines up seventh for Sunday’s race, but he has been consistently fast this weekend and should be able to record a third consecutive top-10.
Mar 18 - 12:58 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in practice for the Camping World 500 with a speed of 137.101 mph.

That was .121 seconds faster than second-place Kyle Larson, which equates to .629 miles per hour. Elliott qualified third last fall, which was an improvement of 14 spots over his spring effort. The No. 24 should be stout in time trials Friday afternoon and he should be just as quick in race trim.
