Chase Elliott keeps getting closer and closer to scoring his first NASCAR Cup race. He finished second in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway with a balance of speed and fuel mileage.

This is Elliott’s fifth top-five finish in the last nine races of the season. Two of his remaining efforts in that span ended in top-10s and the worst result was a 12th. Take all considerations of him being a rookie out of the mix, and Elliott is a great value in any light. Elliott was leading the race with 50 remaining and stayed in the top five through the final 25 percent of the event.

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Firekeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway. His top speed was 201.630 mph.

NASCAR has a new low down force package this week and the rookie has no idea of how much grip the cars lost from last year. That is one reason for his speed. Another reason is that he is just flat out fast in his first full season and should be on virtually all rosters as a victory is just around the corner.

The top-two rookies of 2016 have run nose-to-tail during most of the 2016 season. For the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway, they will start side-by-side on row seven. Chase Elliott qualified 13th with a speed of 179.444 mph; Ryan Blaney was 14th at 179.379.

Elliott leads in Rookie of the Year points, but Blaney has made the battle very interesting. Both drivers have been great values during practically every race.

Rookie of the Year Chase Elliott overcame a pit road speeding penalty in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in route to an eighth-place finish. He was the top performing freshman for the 10th time this season and for the seventh straight race.

Equally important, this was his fourth consecutive top-10 finish. Predictability is hard to come by with first-year drivers, but Elliott is performing more like a veteran with every passing week.

Chase Elliott and Danica Patrick will fill out the field for the All-star race to make this a 20-car show. Elliott had the most votes among the drivers who failed to advance with Sprint Showdown segment wins. Patrick had the second most.

Elliott has a legitimate chance to win the All-star race given his strength in the Sprint Showdown segments. Patrick was not particularly strong in any of the three segments and finished only ninth among 23 cars running in the final 10-lap segment.

Chase Elliott’s remarkable rookie year in which he has finished among the top 10 in eight of 12 races and among the top five four times has made him a great Fantasy NASCAR value. His Fantasy Power Rankings—which tracks strength-based categories and points scored in major NASCAR games—ranks him 10th on the chart.

That means Elliott has been one of the top all-around values this year. His salary cap started relatively low in most games and it is still taking time to adjust. If he was locked in at a low-rate in season-long games, there is absolutely no reason to park him anytime soon. Rookies will make mistakes, but they are going to be overcome quickly in Elliott’s case.

As noted in pre-race coverage for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism, Hendrick Motorsports has seen one of their drivers win in his first attempt at Dover International Speedway and another finish second in his inaugural attempt. Chase Elliott battled Matt Kenseth and Kyle Larson for the win until the final lap, but finished third in a nail-biter. Jimmie Johnson won in his first two attempts in 2002 and Kyle Busch finished second in his first two tries in 2005.

Elliott showed his inexperience in the closing laps. Both he and Larson had considerably faster cars than the No. 20 with about 15 laps remaining. If he had allowed the No. 42 to pass for the lead, he would have followed through the opening and then battled Larson for the win. Still, third is incredibly impressive for a rookie at Dover.

Scoring a top-five in one’s first Dover International Speedway start is no small feat, but Chase Elliott has some history on his side. Two Hendrick Motorsports drivers have fared extremely well in their first starts with Kyle Busch finishing second in both 2005 races and Jimmie Johnson winning both of his rookie events.

Elliott is destined to join the ranks of superstars anchored by these drivers. Top-fives are difficult to achieve, but look for Elliott to at least challenge for a top-10. He starts 13th in Sunday’s AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Chase Elliott earned his seventh top-10 of the season with a ninth in the GoBowling.com 400 at Kansas Speedway. This came on the heels of a fifth at Talladega SuperSpeedway last week and is the third time he has scored consecutive top-10s.

Elliott has not yet earned three straight top-10s, but it is only a matter of time before he knocks that record down. Dover International Speedway can be challenging for rookies at the Cup level, but given former driver Jeff Gordon’s success on the track, this team should have a great set of notes from which to work.

Chase Elliott barely failed to advance to the final round of qualification for Saturday night’s GoBowling.com 400. His lap of 189.003 mph was good enough for only 13th.

There is not much of a reason to panic where the rookie is concerned because he has so little experience on this track. He is close enough to the top 10 that a slight adjustment in race trim will earn positive points and make him a good value.
May 6 - 7:29 PM

Chase Elliott had a rollercoaster day at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He lead 27 laps early in the Geico 500, struggled on two of the final three restarts, but surged on the final lap to finish fifth.

This was an impressive rebound for Elliott after crashing early in the Daytona 500. Notably, he was one of only a few drivers who got to the end of the Geico 500 without crash damage and that played a huge role in his success.

Chase Elliott will lead the field to green on Sunday for the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He also had the pole for the first restrictor-plate, superspeedway race this year at Daytona International Speedway.

Elliott was running among the top 10 when he spun early in the 500. He never really got a chance to show his plate track ability, so he is an unknown this week at the Cup level.

Besides driving his #24 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Sprint Cup GEICO 500, Chase Elliott will be piloting the JR Motorsports #88 Armour Chevrolet Camaro in Saturday's XFINITY Series Sparks Energy 300.

Elliott already has one restrictor-plate win in 2016, after winning the NXS race at Daytona earlier this year. In four NXS starts for JRM so far this season, he has four top-five efforts, with an average finish of 3.5. The Georgia native has 13 starts on tracks measuring two or more miles in length, with one win, four top-five and seven top-10 finishes.-JRM

Chase Elliott has made only one previous restrictor-plate, superspeedway start at the Cup level. He qualified on the pole for the Daytona 500 and ran among the top 10 for about 20 laps before he spun without contact and lost 40 laps making repairs.

The plate tracks are prone to dark horse success, but there is a reason veterans don’t like running with rookies. It will take a race or two before most fantasy players are comfortable placing Elliott on their roster.
