Fantasy owners should not expect much of a letdown for Chase Elliott. With Hendrick Motorsports resources, he should be able to avoid the sophomore slump.
One reason for this projection is that he has already experienced a minor version of that curse. He came out of the blocks so strong as a rookie that he recorded 11 top-10s in the first 15 races and came one position shy of winning at Michigan International Speedway in June. Elliott had only six top-10s in the final 21 races, but he ended the season with a five-race streak of top-15s. He will continue to be uneven in 2017, but should be a top value in most games.

Chase Elliott finished 11th in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway and narrowly missed finishing in the top 10 in yet another inaugural race on a track.

Top-10s are hard to come by at Homestead. With the exception of racers in the first event on this configuration, only two earned top-10s in their first attempt. For most of the Ford 400 it appeared Elliott would join David Ragan and Clint Bowyer—both of whom finished 10th in their first attempt—but he wound up just one position short.

Chase Elliott scraped the wall in final practice for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but the damage was minimal enough that a backup car will not be required.

Elliott all-but crashed and showed remarkable car control to keep from hitting the wall hard. He was running fifth on the speed chart at the time.

Chase Elliott backed up an eighth-place Phoenix International Raceway finish this spring with a ninth in Sunday’s Can-Am 500 to sweep the top 10 on this track.

Elliott spent a third of the race among the top five and nearly all of it in the top 10. He was a valuable addition to fantasy rosters this week as he closes out the season strong. Homestead-Miami Speedway will showcase another solid performance while he wraps up Rookie of the Year honors.

Chase Elliott finished eighth this spring after starting the Good Sam 500 17th.

Now that the pressure of the playoffs is off his shoulders, Elliott’s spring attempts on tracks are more predictive. Last week at Texas, he earned a second top-five in two races on that track and the odds are good he will finish in the top 10 again this week.

Chase Elliott finished fourth in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Elliott finished fifth in his Texas debut this spring, so he improved by one spot. The No. 24 has either been great or suffered catastrophe on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2016. He will be a favorite to finish in the top five at Homestead-Miami Speedway in two weeks.

Chase Elliott has either finished in the top 10 or the 30s in his last nine efforts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

He has always shown speed, but has been plagued by accidents. If he stays out of trouble he will be a good value; unfortunately it is impossible to predict when someone else is likely to run into him.

Sprint Cup regular Chase Elliott (No. 24 Chevrolet SS), driving the Carlos Contreras owned No. 71 NAPA Auto Parts/Valvoline Chevrolet Silverado), won the Keystone Light 21 Means 21 Pole Award for today's Texas Roadhouse 200 (96.254 mph).

This is his second pole in ten NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races. It is his first pole and first top-10 start in 2016 and his first pole in three NCWTS races at Martinsville Speedway. XFINITY Series regular Daniel Suarez (starts second) posted his eighth top-10 NCWTS start of 2016 and his third in four truck races at Martinsville. Cole Custer (third), the fastest qualifying Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender, posted his fifth top-10 start at Martinsville and his 10th in 20 races this season.

Chase Elliott finished 12th in the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and failed to advance to the third round of the Chase for the Championship.

Elliott needed to either win the race or have several contenders fail to finish with results in the high-30s. Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski blew engines, but that only lifted him one position off the bottom of the grid. Elliott was involved in an accident that was not of his making at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but it might have been a risky setup with his back wheels at Kansas Speedway that ultimately cost him.

Chase Elliott logged 24 laps in final practice for the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, which was the second most in the field.

Elliott spent part of his time in only a two-car draft and probably did not learn much about the handling of his car. This gave him a chance to get more comfortable in the cockpit, but it might also have put some strain on his engine.

Chase Elliott sits 25 points behind the cutoff line to advance to the next round of the playoffs and is essentially in a must-win situation at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Anything can happen on the plate tracks and if the drivers on the cusp of advancing have trouble, Elliott could move ahead on points. He finished fifth in his first attempt on this track this May, but the likelihood of Joey Logano, Austin Dillon, Denny Hamlin, and Brad Keselowski all having problems with a sizeable portion of the non-Chase contender also finishing ahead of them is minimal. Elliott needs to concentrate on winning and that is a lot of pressure to put on a rookie on a plate track.

Chase Elliott had some sort of problem with his right rear tire that ultimately cost him two laps and sent the No. 24 home 31st.

Chase Elliott needed a solid run to overcome a 33rd at Charlotte Motor Speedway two weeks ago. He sits 25 points beneath the cutline, but more importantly there are four drivers who must have problems in order for him to advance. Anything can happen at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but that is a lot of stress to put on a rookie’s shoulders. The good news is that Elliott has led laps in the past two races and was capable of winning. From a fantasy standpoint, probably the best thing that could happen to him would be to get eliminated from playoff contention to alleviate the pressure.

Chase Elliott narrowly missed advancing to the final round of qualification for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway and will line up 13th on Sunday.

Elliott complained of a tight condition, which is something that should easily be fixed in Saturday practice. He will not have the best pit stall selection, but at 13th he will not be all that bad either. Elliott is still favored to score a top-10 finish.

Chase Elliott was collateral damage in an accident last week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, so the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway is going to test his ability to bounce back.

Elliott has earned top-10s in more than half of his similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track attempts. One of these was a ninth earned this spring at Kansas. His other four efforts have all been 18th or worse, so there is some reason to be concerned among fantasy owners. By the end of this season, Elliott will probably end the year at or near the .500 mark on these courses.

Chase Elliott is finding out the hard way that it ain’t over till it’s over. He led 103 of the first 260 laps of the Bank of America 500 before getting involved in a 12-car accident that was not of his making. Elliott finished 33rd at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Elliott went from a favorite to advance to the final round to one of five drivers who practically need to win next week at Kansas Speedway. No one wants to put their faith in getting lucky at Talladega SuperSpeedway—and while the No. 24 has the speed to stay with the leaders, it is difficult to get one’s first victory under these circumstances.
