Chase Elliott will make his third NASCAR Cup start at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend in the Coca-Cola 600. He qualified easily on time in 28th.

This is Elliott’s first attempt on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track in a points’ race, but he has looked comfortable so far in practice and during the Sprint Showdown last weekend. He should be considered a favorite to finish in the top 20 at least.

Chase Elliott finished second in Sunday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Iowa Speedway in Newton, IA.

He started the No. 9 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro sixth on the grid for the 3M 250. Elliott won the 3M Lap Leader award (led 114 laps of the 259 laps run). He is currently third in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings.

In addition to defending his XFINITY Series championship at Iowa Speedway this weekend, Chase Elliott will make his third start in NASCAR Sprint Cup competition, piloting the No. 25 Chevrolet SS in the Sprint Showdown race at Charlotte on Friday night.

He will make a 1,024-mile journey between Newton, Iowa and Charlotte. If he wins one of the two 20-lap segments, he will punch a ticket to Saturday night’s All-Star race and then make the 1,024-mile journey to Iowa Speedway for a pair of NXS practices. Elliott carries a strong record into Iowa, where he has tallied one top-five and two top-10 finishes in two starts. If eligible for the All-Star race, he will fly back to Charlotte following final NXS practice at Iowa, with barely four hours to spare before the mandatory driver’s meeting for the All-Star race. Sunday morning Elliott will be en route to race at Iowa and serve as the in-race reporter for the 3M 250.-JR Motorsports

NAPA AUTO PARTS will grow its relationship with 11-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports in 2016 when it becomes the majority sponsor of driver Chase Elliott and his No. 24 Chevrolet SS team.

The news was announced Tuesday evening in Las Vegas during the NAPA EXPO, which is attended by more than 17,000 store owners, managers and dealers. The expanded partnership will feature NAPA AUTO PARTS as a primary sponsor of the No. 24 team in 24 Sprint Cup races annually, including the season-opening Daytona 500, and as an associate-level partner in all other events. The agreement covers the 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons.-Hendrick Motorsports

He started the No. 9 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro 14th on the grid for the Winn Dixie 300. He completed 84 laps (led one) of the 113 lap race. He is currently third in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings.

Chase Elliott finished 16th in the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway, which was a significant improvement over his 38th-place debut at Martinsville Speedway earlier this spring.

Elliott raced among the top 10 for a time and was a good value in every fantasy game. His next attempt will come at Charlotte in two weeks and he should be an equally good value on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track.

Chase Elliott finished fifth in Friday night's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Richmond (VA) International Raceway.

He started the No. 9 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro seventh on the grid for the ToyotaCare 250. This top-five finish pushed Elliott up one spot to sit second in the 2015 XFINITY Series championship standings, just eight points behind leader Ty Dillon.
Apr 27 - 3:28 PM

Chase Elliott advanced to the second round of qualification easily and will start 16th in his second career Cup attempt at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday.

Richmond is an easier track to run than Martinsville and Elliott has plenty of experience on the 0.750-miler. He will finish much better Saturday night than three weeks ago at Martinsville and that will improve his confidence level. If he fits a niche, he will be a great fantasy value.
Apr 24 - 11:06 PM

Chase Elliott will take on a week of triple header racing action, beginning with the Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown on Thursday, a celebrity late model race at South Boston Speedway.

Then, Elliott journeys to Richmond International Raceway (RIR), where he’ll run his eighth XFINITY Series race of the season on Friday night. To cap off the extensive week of racing, Elliott will attempt to qualify and race in Saturday night’s Sprint Cup Series event at RIR in the No. 25 Chevrolet SS for Hendrick Motorsports. NAPA AUTO PARTS will serve as primary sponsor on each of Elliott’s three Chevrolet race cars this week.-JR Motorsports

Chase Elliott finished sixth in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Bristol (VA) Motor Speedway.

Chase Elliott finished eighth in Friday night's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Crash damage and a 38th-place finish contributed to a disappointing debut for Chase Elliott at Martinsville. He was running at the end of the race, but 73 laps off the pace in 38th.

The entire Hendrick Motorsports organization struggled in the STP 500 at times, however, and Elliott simply proved to not be immune to those problems. Elliott should be a better value in three weeks at Richmond, which is scheduled to be his second start in the Cup series.
Mar 31 - 2:30 PM

Chase Elliott struggled a little in the first and only practice session before STP 500 qualification. His top speed of 96.337 mph was only 29th best. He must qualify in the top 36 to make the show since the No. 25 does not have any owner points.

Elliott has the experience of his teammates to fall back on, however, and they are liable to contribute to a setup that is good enough to improve a few positions. Once qualified, he has all day Saturday to get his rhythm.
Mar 27 - 3:09 PM

Chase Elliott will make his Cup debut this week, but that does not mean he is lacking in short track experience. His last three starts in the XFINITY series at Richmond and Bristol combined resulted in a sweep of the top five in qualification and finishing results.

Elliott will be in equipment that rivals teammates Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson—both of whom have eight Martinsville victories. What he does with that equipment remains to be seen, but a top-20 is not out of the question.
