SunEnergy1 will sponsor Chase Elliott in four races in 2016. They will be the primary sponsor in July at Daytona International Speedway, at Watkins Glen International in August, at Kansas Speedway in October, and Phoenix International Raceway in November, according to a press release from Hendrick Motorsports.

They will also sponsor Elliott for four races in 2017 and 2018, which gives the Young Gun some security. A secure driver makes fewer mistakes than one who is constantly looking to impress potential sponsors, so this improves Elliott’s odds.

Kelley Blue Book has extended its relationship with 11-time Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports through the 2017 NASCAR season.

In 2016 and 2017, Kelley Blue Book will be a primary sponsor of Chase Elliott and the No. 24 Chevrolet SS team for two Sprint Cup races annually. The two-year renewal, which also includes associate-level sponsorship, continues a relationship that began in 2014 with driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. Elliott, 20, who has earned five NASCAR national series race wins, was voted by fans as NXS most popular driver in 2014 and 2015. He will be a Sprint Cup Series rookie of the year contender in 2016.-Hendrick Motorsports

Chase Elliott is not out to replace Jeff Gordon in 2016, but he will get a chance to take over the No. 24 in next Monday’s Goodyear tire test at Homestead-Miami Speedway. "Like I told people all year, I'm not trying to fill anybody's shoes. I'm just trying to wear my own and hopefully, that will be good enough," Elliott told Motorsport.com.

Elliott is widely considered the frontrunner to win 2016 Rookie of the Year and any added seat time is going to be positive for this Young Gun.

Chase Elliott won his second Snowball Derby on Sunday night at Five Flags Speedway after original winner Christopher Bell was disqualified in post-race technical inspection.

Bell had crossed the line first but his car was found to have a left side weight infraction, forcing his immediate disqualification by head technical inspector Ricky Brooks. The left side weight registered at 58.3 percent while the tolerance is 58.0. Before he could be announced as the winner, Elliott also had to pass technical inspection and was given the same thorough treatment that Brooks and his staff has become known for. Ultimately, Elliott and his No. 9 Chevrolet passed and was declared the winner. And while the 2014 NASCAR XFINITY Series champion was more than willing to take the trophy, he also sympathized with Bell, having lost the 2013 Derby in post-race inspection.

Chase Elliott isn’t sure if this is his last start in the Snowball Derby but he wants to make it a memorable one nevertheless.

Come Daytona Speedweeks in February, Elliott will have inherited the iconic No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet from Jeff Gordon, an occupation that will limit his seat time in a Super Late Model moving forward. He has enjoyed a lot of success in Pensacola over the years. Long before he captured the 2014 NASCAR XFINITY Series championship, Elliott was a 14-year-old, cutting his teeth at Mobile and Pensacola, winning track championships at both venues back in 2010. He won the Pro Late Model Snowflake 100 in 2010 before winning the Snowball Derby itself in 2011. He thought he won his second Tom Dawson Trophy in 2013 before having it taken away via a post-race disqualification in technical inspection.

Chase Elliott had an inauspicious beginning and end to his abbreviated pre-rookie season in 2015. He suffered crash damage in his first start at Martinsville Speedway to finish 38th and wrecked twice at Darlington Raceway en route to a 41st-place result in his fifth and final try.

In between, his three races were quite strong, however. He finished 16th at Richmond International Raceway and posted a pair of 18ths at Charlotte Motor Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The variety of tracks on which he ran will give him a good springboard into 2016 and he should be expected to earn at least a handful of top-10s.

The fans have spoken; and for Chase Elliott, driver of the No. 9 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet for JR Motorsports, that means a second consecutive NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Most Popular Driver Award.

Elliott accepted the 2015 Most Popular Driver (MPD) honors during Monday night’s season-ending banquet at the Diplomat Resort and Spa in Hollywood, Fla. It stands as the second such award for Elliott in only his sophomore year of full-time NXS competition.

Jeff Gordon did not get the victory and championship that would have further etched his name in NASCAR’s record book, but he ended his career on a high note. He finished sixth in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway to end the 2015 season—and his career—with a seven-race streak of top-10s. He finished third in the season-long championship.

Gordon now turns his attention to the broadcast booth, but fantasy owners can expect some of the momentum earned by this team to transfer to Chase Elliott in 2016.
