The NNS Championship clinched as Chase Elliott heads into Homestead; being the competitor that he is, Elliott views the season as far from over as there is still one race left to win.

Exactly like the three tracks Elliott conquered earlier this season, Homestead-Miami Speedway is a place he has never raced. Adding to the 18-year-old phenom’s confidence is the fact that he’ll be in one of his favorite cars – chassis No. 851. Elliott wheeled this chassis to victories at Darlington Raceway and Chicagoland Speedway earlier this season.-JR Motorsports
