Chase Elliott finished 10th in the Auto Club 400, which was his 10th consecutive top-15 finish stretching back to last fall’s Hellman’s 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.
Tenth was a far cry from the victory that many believed he would score, but consistency is establishing this sophomore in the playoff contention. As soon as pundits ignore him, he will win when it’s least expected. Mar 26 - 9:27 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Auto Club 400 with a speed of 187.480 mph.

Elliott was second-fastest in the first session. The team seems to have found whatever they lacked on Friday. He rolls off the grid from the seventh row, which puts him in a bit of a sweet spot in terms of place-differential potential. Elliott should move up and combine points for a top-10 finish with those for advancement. With a little luck, Elliott will contend for the win.

Chase Elliott had the second fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Auto Club 400 with a speed of 186.843 mph.

That means he finally found some speed in his Chevrolet. He was only 12th fastest in Friday’s practice and missed advancing to the final round of time trials for the first time this season; he qualified 13th. He was not particularly strong during long runs with the 12th-quickest time, but the No. 24 team still has one session to work on that.

Chase Elliott spent the majority of the Camping World 500 inside the top 10, but a poor restart at the end dropped him to 12th in the final rundown.

That snapped a two-race streak of top-10s at Phoenix and a two-race streak of top-fives this season. He should take some consolation in the fact that two-mile tracks have been kind to him since Auto Club Speedway is next on the schedule. He should also be encouraged by his fourth-best average running position of 4.42 at Phoenix International Raceway.
Mar 20 - 12:20 AM

Chase Elliott earned an eighth-place finish last spring at Phoenix International Raceway and was ninth in the fall, which gives him a perfect record of top-10s on this track.

Elliott has gotten off to a remarkable start this season as well, and those two factors should combine for a great run in this Sunday’s Camping World 500. He is expensive in salary cap games, however, and should be balanced with other marquee racers like Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch in contests that allow for multi-entry.
Mar 18 - 2:45 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice session with a speed of 135.977 mph.

Elliott was also fastest in the first session on Friday with a speed of 137.101. He stumbled just a little in qualification and lines up seventh for Sunday’s race, but he has been consistently fast this weekend and should be able to record a third consecutive top-10.

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in practice for the Camping World 500 with a speed of 137.101 mph.

That was .121 seconds faster than second-place Kyle Larson, which equates to .629 miles per hour. Elliott qualified third last fall, which was an improvement of 14 spots over his spring effort. The No. 24 should be stout in time trials Friday afternoon and he should be just as quick in race trim.
Mar 17 - 3:31 PM

Chase Elliott finished third in the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Elliott finished fifth last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway and was fourth at Texas Motor Speedway in the two most recent races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Elliott was leading the Daytona 500 with a handful of laps remaining and these three solid runs to start the season have made him one of the top values in every fantasy game. Last year, he swept the top 10 at Phoenix International Raceway, so he should be able to keep his streak alive.
Mar 12 - 7:26 PM

In addition to posting the fastest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice session, Chase Elliott also had the quickest 10-lap average at 186.480 mph.

Elliott posted his quick time on his first 10 laps. He rolls off the grid 12th and needs the durability of long runs to establish himself among the leaders.
Mar 11 - 2:35 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in the Saturday morning practice session for the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, with a speed of 191.510 mph.

Elliott is coming off a fifth-place finish last week at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He qualified 11th for that race and lines up 12th this Sunday. When asked why he did not have a shot at the pole, he told reporters that he had "tried too hard" on his final qualification lap and he should be better over the course of a 400-mile race.
Mar 11 - 1:01 PM

Chase Elliott has shown a tendency to be an all or nothing driver on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. In 12 starts on this course type, he has earned seven top-10s compared to four results outside the top 30,

All of his poor results were marked by crash damage or a tire failure. He was challenging for a top-10 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last year before he ran into a spinning Matt Kenseth. If he stays out of trouble, Elliott should easily contend for a top-five in the Kobalt 400 this week, which makes him a great value.
Mar 9 - 10:34 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a speed of 188.015 mph.

Elliott was coming out of Truck practice and apparently those extra laps gave him some confidence. He set that fast time early and then worked on long runs. He was second on the 20-lap average speed chart. Elliott qualified 11th for Sunday’s race and should be able to stay with the leaders through the first two segments.
Mar 4 - 1:26 PM

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series regular Chase Elliott (No. 24 Chevrolet SS), driving the 23 Allegiant Airlines/NAPA Chevrolet Silverado, led the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series practice session for the Active Pest Control 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

He ran a quick lap of 179.557 mph in this session. No. 29 Chase Briscoe, No. 4 Christopher Bell, No. 8 John Hunter Nemechek and No. No. 18 Noah Gragson round out the top five of the 34 trucks practicing in this session. Jennifer Jo Cobb in the No. 10 Chevrolet Silverado was the slowest.
Mar 3 - 7:11 PM

Chase Elliott was leading the Daytona 500 with three laps remaining until his car ran out of gasoline; he dropped to 14th—the next-to-last car on the lead lap.

This was likely Elliott’s best opportunity to date to score a victory and he was not happy with the outcome. Elliott apparently declined to be interviewed before he left the track. He managed to stay out of major incidents, however, and that is better than he performed at Daytona as a rookie. Now Elliott will head to a pair of unrestricted, intermediate speedways where he has had his greatest success.

Chase Elliott led the field to green in the first Can-Am Duel at Daytona and led them to the checkers as well to win.

Elliott already had the pole for the Daytona 500 with his fastest lap in qualification last Sunday. He did not need to take any risks, but wanted the victory and the 10 championship points that went along with it. Elliott led much of the final segment of the race and applied a lesson learned from Brad Keselowski by leading first one line then the other in the draft.
