Chase Elliott finished eighth in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway, which kept a perfect record of top-10s alive on this track.
In fact, Elliott came within a few laps of extending a top-five streak. He was challenging for fourth when he got caught behind a rapidly slowing Matt Kenseth. While regaining his speed, got passed by several drivers with nothing to lose. He had a good points’ day, however, and with three regular season races remaining in a good position to advance.

Chase Elliott finished 10th in the Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway, which made him the highest finishing driver at Hendrick Motorsports.

Elliott was followed across the line by Kasey Kahne in 11th and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in 12th. Jimmie Johnson crashed and was listed in 35th. More was expected of Elliott, however, and he might have earned a top-five if he had not pitted during a late caution thinking he might have a tire going flat. He did not, but he charged from 24th on lap 106 to 10th.

Chase Elliott posted the third quickest 10-lap average and the fourth fastest single speed in the second round of practice for the Overton's 301 at New Hampshire, which gives him a good balance for the race.

Elliott bobbled in qualification a little and rolls off the grid 11th. He will be stuck in traffic for a while, but if he can employ some strategy he should get into the top five and stay there.

For the fourth time this year, Chase Elliott scored a top-three finish, which placed him on the "podium" at Kentucky Speedway in the Quaker State 400.

Elliott’s third-place finish was his third top-five in the past six races. He also has a pair of top-10s and that has made him one of the top values in most fantasy games.

Hendrick Motorsports (HMS) and driver Chase Elliott have agreed to a four-year contract extension that will keep the 2016 NASCAR Cup Series rookie of the year with the No. 24 Chevrolet SS team through the end of the 2022 racing season.

Elliott signed with HMS in February 2011 as a 15-year-old high school freshman. In 2016, he earned a Cup playoff berth and was the series' top rookie after posting 10 top-five finishes, 17 top-10s and two pole positions, including the season-opening Daytona 500. Through 16 points races of his sophomore season, he is sixth in the Cup standings.-HMS

Chase Elliott earned his first top-10 finish of his career on a road course with an eighth at Sonoma Raceway in the Toyota / Save Mart 350.

Elliott had a difficult weekend. He showed speed in practice, but wrecked in Happy Hour to destroy his primary car. He posted the fastest lap in round one of qualification, but slipped to eighth in the final round. His seesaw weekend ultimately saw him finish exactly where he started, but he can build on that for his next attempt at Watkins Glen International this August.

Chase Elliott got loose entering turn 10 and spun into the wall during the final 15 minutes of practice for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. He made hard contact and will have to roll out a backup.

Elliott had climbed to seventh on the leaderboard, so he was starting to get comfortable on the road course. Perhaps he was a little too comfortable. He spun harmlessly in the first practice session.

Chase Elliott has made only two road course starts in his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He finished 21st last years at Sonoma Raceway and improved to 13th at Watkins Glen International.

Elliott is not highly recommended this week, but road courses are a track type on which a switch occasionally seems to flip. Elliott could be a pleasant surprise, but there are more predictable options.

Chase Elliott has now made three starts at Michigan International Speedway and finished second each time.

Elliott is still seeking his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win, but he is earning a lot of points in the process on this two-mile track.

Kyle Busch finished ninth in the Axalta Presents the Pocono 400, but it was another frustrating weekend despite the top-10.

Busch had the race in hand, leading 100 laps before he was caught out on pit strategy at the end. He chose not to take tires on the final stop and only fifth-place Brad Keselowski followed him in that strategy. He tried to battle Ryan Blaney in the closing laps to keep clean air on his nose, but once he lost the lead, he faded quickly. Joe Gibbs Racing is still looking for their first win 14 races into the season.

Chase Elliott finished eighth in the Axalta 400 after starting the day in 25th.

We predicted Elliott would return to top-five form after earning a fourth in his first race Pocono last spring. While we missed by a few positions, Elliott was nevertheless a great fantasy value with a positive place-differential of 17 points might have tipped the balance for many players.
Jun 11 - 11:04 PM

Chase Elliott posted a lap of 175.223 in qualification for the Pocono 400 and will line up deep in the pack in 25th.

He is joined at the back by Kasey Kahne (26th) and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (28th). This is typically a good track for Hendrick Motorsports and all three of those drivers should earn positive place differential points. Expect Elliott to contend for a top-10 finish with a little strategy and a lot of speed.

Last year, Chase Elliott finished third in both Dover International Speedway races. He kept his record of top-five finishes intact Sunday in the AAA 400 Drive for Autism with a fifth-place finish.

Elliott was running just outside that mark in seventh when Ty Dillon spun out of fourth. Elliott avoided the melee, slipped past sixth-running Daniel Suarez, and finished fifth. He was strong all afternoon, but had to overcome a speeding penalty early in the race.

Chase Elliott won the fan vote and will be the 20th driver to start the All-star race.

Elliott raced his way into last year’s show and finished sixth. He had to come from the back in that event as well and should be on pace to score another top-10 this year.

Chase Elliott enters the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway with a four-race streak of top-10 finishes on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

The last time Elliott failed to finish that well came at Kansas last fall when a tire problem contributed to a 31st-place results, three laps off the pace. He was ninth in the spring, however, and should easily challenge for another top-10 this week.
