Chase Elliott won the fan vote to get into the All-Star race for the third consecutive year.

Elliott showed mixed emotion. He was grateful to get the fan vote and have an opportunity to race in the big show, but would have preferred to race his way in. In two previous starts, he finished sixth in 2016 and seventh last year.
May 19 - 6:55 PM

Chase Elliott posted a lap of 185.103 mph in the second round of qualification and will roll off the grid 17th.

Elliott probably could have advanced to the final round, but he was caught on track when Kyle Larson spun. He was forced to slow when the caution waved, but had an extra lap on his tires.

Chase Elliott ended the 2017 season with four top-fives and an eighth in the last five races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. This year, his best result was a 10th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Elliott crashed out of the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but he was only 11th at Texas Motor Speedway and one lap off the pace. Leve him in the garage for the moment and evaluate the No. 9 for the next few weeks.
May 11 - 12:45 PM

Chase Elliott entered the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway with a four-race streak of top-fives at Dover, but he missed that mark by a wide margin in 12th.

Worse still, Elliott never really contended for a top-five on a track many – including the Rotoworld experts – expected to contend for victory. He fell back consistently and could never maintain track position to a degree that would allow him to even gamble.
May 7 - 7:44 AM

Chase Elliott has a perfect record of top-fives at Dover International Speedway with a best of second last fall.

It seems like this gets said on a weekly basis, but this could be Elliott’s best opportunity to score a victory in 2018. He led late in the Apache Warrior 400 last year but failed to adjust his line to deny Kyle Busch the victory. Little by little, he is learning how to win.
May 4 - 10:20 AM

Chase Elliott finished third in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Elliott was surprised that he did not get any help at the end of the race, but he was the only Chevrolet driver in the top seven. Without any corporate help, he was not going to get much higher in the rundown.
Apr 29 - 6:10 PM

Chase Elliott will drop to the back of the pack in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway with a tire change.

It really does not matter much where a driver starts at Talladega unless there is an accident in the opening laps. This does not alter his handicap.
Apr 29 - 1:47 PM

Chase Elliott is crash prone on restrictor-plate, superspeedways, suffering damage in six of nine races.

Elliott has crashed and failed to finish three of the last four restrictor-plate, superspeedway events including this spring in the Daytona 500. In nine attempts on this track type, he has never finished better than he started and that is going to cost you in games with place-differential points.
Apr 27 - 11:24 AM

For the eighth time in his career, Chase Elliott has finished second in a Monster Energy Cup Series race. This time he was runner-up to Kyle Busch in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway.

Elliott did not have a second-place car for most of the race, even though he started on the outside of the front row. Driving with a lot of determination, he managed to get several spots during the last two short, green flag runs. He needed this in order to replace some of the lost points from two penalties incurred earlier in the season.
Apr 21 - 10:20 PM

Chase Elliott posted a lap of 123.621 mph and will line up on the outside of the front row for the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway.

Elliott has experienced a lot of trouble in the past few weeks and needs a strong run to put that behind the team. We keep waiting for this team to break through with a win and each week is a good opportunity. Richmond is no exception.
Apr 20 - 6:24 PM

Chase Elliott enters the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway with three consecutive top-10s on short, flat tracks.

Elliott finished second and third in his last two Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix) races and was ninth at Martinsville Speedway. His last attempt at Richmond Raceway netted a 10th-place finish, but that is his only top-10 on this track. Given the bad luck he has experienced lately, he is a risky proposition this week.
Apr 20 - 2:46 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway with a speed of 121.327 mph.

Elliott is coming off a tough weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. He has only one top-10 on this track, however, and needs a good long-run setup to challenge for a victory. Wait until the second practice is in the books before making any decisions.
Apr 20 - 12:08 PM

In five starts at Richmond Raceway, Chase Elliott has never failed to complete the full race distance.

Completing 2,011 laps of competition in five races, Elliott has managed to stay in contention despite suffering crash damage in fall 2016. Until last fall, however, he failed to score a single top-10 and had only one other top-15.
Apr 20 - 9:47 AM

Chase Elliott was 16 laps down to the leaders when rain slowed the field on lap 48 of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

With the field being inverted by poor qualifications among marquee drivers, it was inevitable that some big names would get swept into incidents early. If Elliott is on your team, remove him.
