Chase Elliott will lead the field to green on Sunday for the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He also had the pole for the first restrictor-plate, superspeedway race this year at Daytona International Speedway.
Elliott was running among the top 10 when he spun early in the 500. He never really got a chance to show his plate track ability, so he is an unknown this week at the Cup level. Apr 30 - 2:07 PM

Besides driving his #24 Chevrolet SS in Sunday's Sprint Cup GEICO 500, Chase Elliott will be piloting the JR Motorsports #88 Armour Chevrolet Camaro in Saturday's XFINITY Series Sparks Energy 300.

Elliott already has one restrictor-plate win in 2016, after winning the NXS race at Daytona earlier this year. In four NXS starts for JRM so far this season, he has four top-five efforts, with an average finish of 3.5. The Georgia native has 13 starts on tracks measuring two or more miles in length, with one win, four top-five and seven top-10 finishes.-JRM

Chase Elliott has made only one previous restrictor-plate, superspeedway start at the Cup level. He qualified on the pole for the Daytona 500 and ran among the top 10 for about 20 laps before he spun without contact and lost 40 laps making repairs.

The plate tracks are prone to dark horse success, but there is a reason veterans don’t like running with rookies. It will take a race or two before most fantasy players are comfortable placing Elliott on their roster.

Chase Elliott earned his second consecutive top-five of the 2016 season when he crossed under the checkers for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway in fourth-place.

This was Elliott’s fifth top-10 in eight starts this season, which is remarkable for a Rookie of the Year contender. He finished just ahead of Trevor Bayne in fifth, Matt DiBenedetto in sixth, and Clint Bowyer in eighth in a race dominated by dark horses.

Chase Elliott posted the second-fastest lap in Saturday morning’s practice session with a speed of 126.253 mph, which was 0.014 seconds slower than Kyle Busch.

Managing a race on short tracks is more important than raw speed and it is going to take some time before we know how Elliott will do for 500 laps. He is risky, but could make the list if he fits the final slot on a player’s roster.

Chase Elliott earned his first career top-five in only his 12th start at the NASCAR Sprint Cup level. He was fifth in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Elliott and team could not quite decide on a pit stop strategy at the end of the race and that might have cost them an opportunity to finish even better. Elliott took two tires on the next-to-last pit stop and then came in a few laps later for four when the yellow waved again. The team seemed to know they could not win with two tires and should be respected for gambling on the second stop.

The top Rookie of the Year contenders advanced to the final round of qualification at Texas Motor Speedway for the Duck Commander 500. Chase Elliott qualified fourth with a speed of 193.036 while Ryan Blaney was seventh at 192.885.

Both rookies have been solid on unrestricted, intermediate speedways this season and that trend is going to continue. Still modestly priced because they are first-year drivers, they fit almost any salary cap scenario.
Apr 8 - 4:11 PM

Despite failing to finish all the laps last week at Martinsville Speedway in the STP 500, Chase Elliott finished well enough with a 20th to maintain his position in the top 16 in points. He currently sits 16th.

Along with Ryan Blaney, that makes two Rookie of the Year contenders who are Chase eligible. Elliott’s feat is all the more remarkable because he started the season in a deep hole after finishing 37th in the Daytona 500 and 38th in the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Elliott should continue to climb up the standings and he is one of this week’s top dark horses at Texas.
Apr 7 - 12:45 PM

Besides driving his regular #24 Chevrolet SS in Saturday night's Sprint Cup Series Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, Chase Elliott will also pilot the #5 TaxSlayer.com Chevrolet Camaro in Friday night's XFINITY Series race.

Elliott captured his first NASCAR XFINITY Series win at Texas Motor Speedway in 2014 after leading 38 of 200 laps in a JR Motorsports (JRM) Chevrolet. The Georgia native has four starts at the 1.5-mile track, which includes two top-five finishes and four top-10 finishes. Elliott has 38 starts on tracks measuring one to two miles in length, totaling three wins, 15 top-five and 31 top-10 finishes, with two poles. In his three NXS starts this season, Elliott has one win (Daytona) and has an average finishing position of 3.3.-JRM
Apr 6 - 8:59 PM

Chase Elliott has been the strongest rookie in nearly every race of 2016, but his results have not always shown as much. With an average finish of 19.4, he is ranked only 20th on this list.

Elliott’s potential is shown in part by a solid qualification run in most races. He averages a 12.6-place spot on the grid, but the bad news in that statistic is that he has cost fantasy players 6.8 place-differential points in games that offer them. He takes back-to-back top-10s with him to into Easter, however, and will have a lot of confidence after the break.
Mar 22 - 7:16 PM

For the third time in five races this season, Chase Elliott was the top finishing rookie in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series. He finished sixth and came within a few inches of scoring his first career top-five.

Sixth still marks his best result of the season. It comes on the heels of an eighth last week at Phoenix International Raceway, which gives him back-to-back, top-10s for the first time in his career.
Mar 20 - 8:31 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest lap among the rookie contenders at Auto Club Speedway. His circuit of 186.795 mph was good enough to allow him to roll off the grid eighth.

Elliott has been the best rookie in each race, but circumstances have not allowed him to finish best at Daytona International Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway. His other two results have been top-10s and he can score another this Sunday if he stays out of trouble.
Mar 18 - 9:03 PM

Chase Elliott was the highest finishing rookie in the Good Sam 500. He scored his second top-10 of the season.

Elliott would have earned a top-10 last week as well if not for getting involved in an accident with Matt Kenseth at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He continues to be the favorite to win Rookie of the Year honors.
Mar 13 - 9:12 PM

Chase Elliott (#88 TaxSlayer.com Chevrolet Camaro) has four XFINITY Series starts at Phoenix International Raceway, with one top-five and four top-10 finishes.

Elliott clinched the NASCAR XFINITY Series championship with his fifth place finish at PIR in November 2014. In addition to one win (Richmond in 2015), Elliott owns seven top-five and 12 top-10 finishes, in his 12 NXS short-track starts.-JR Motorsports
Mar 9 - 9:41 PM

After spending 90 percent of the first 225 laps inside the top 10, Chase Elliott was caught up in an accident triggered by Matt Kenseth and finished next-to-last in 38th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the Kobalt 400.

Elliott blamed himself for not being able to avoid the spinning No. 20, but the real cause of his failure to finish came because he was in heavy traffic. Elliott’s final pit stop mired him outside the top 15 and cost him dearly. Players need to be ever mindful that NASCAR is a team sport.
