Chase Elliott posted the third-quickest 10-lap average in the final practice session for the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard with a speed of 177.016 mph. That was set from his laps 19 through 28.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway is not typically kind to rookies, but Hendrick Motorsports has the experience to set this driver apart from the field. He will contend for a top-five, but is unlikely to win unless he has the right strategy at the end. Jul 22 - 8:05 PM

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap of final practice for the New Hampshire 301 with a speed of 131.347 mph. He was 0.010 seconds faster than flat track master Denny Hamlin.

Elliott has shown so much maturity during a race weekend that it is difficult to think of him as anything other than a favorite despite his lack of experience on a given course. He should easily contend for a top-five.

Chase Elliott scraped the wall with his right rear fender before the halfway point of the second practice session for the New Hampshire 301. The damage was minimal and he will not have to go to a backup.

Elliott had speed at the time: He was fourth on the speed chart at 130.855 mph with 25 minutes remaining. This is a driver’s track that has given several racers their first win; Elliott should be strongly considered for this week’s lineup.

Chase Elliott was one of only four drivers who made long runs in Thursday’s practice session for the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway. He was second to teammate Jimmie Johnson and ahead of Denny Hamlin and Ty Dillon.

Elliott has experience tough times in the latest two wild card races at Sonoma Raceway and Daytona International Speedway, but he had a long streak of top-10s preceding that. This will be his chance to show he can rebound quickly and that is no small feat for a rookie.

The good news is that Chase Elliott was the top-finishing rookie yet again at Sonoma Raceway in the Toyota / Save Mart 350. The bad news is that his 21st-place finish snapped a six-race streak of top-10s for the Young Gun.

Elliott never looked comfortable in the car, despite winning Saturday’s K&N West race. This was his worst outing since he crashed and finished 38th in the third week of the season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, however, so he can be forgiven the momentary lapse.

Pole sitter Chase Elliott completed a daring pass of race leader Noah Gragson with three laps remaining to claim the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Chevys Fresh Mex 200 Saturday afternoon at California’s famed Sonoma Raceway.

Elliott had saved his tires throughout much of the race before he made his race-winning win with three laps to go to overtake Gragson, who was selected to the latest NASCAR Next class earlier this year. Gragson had led a race-high 34 laps before losing the lead to Elliott. Gragson said he learned a great deal racing against someone the caliber of Elliott, a leading NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate. Elliott said he hoped to apply the track time he was able to obtain today to Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350.

With a fast lap of 91.974 mph in the NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet, Sprint Cup driver Chase Elliott will start on the pole later today in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Chevy's Fresh Mex 200 at the Sonoma (CA) Raceway road course.

Elliott has never competed at the Sonoma road course in any series. He is using this race to get the extra experience for Sunday's Sprint Cup Series Toyota/Save Mart 350. No. 9 Ryan Partridge will start along side Elliott on the front row. No. 17 David Mayhew, No. 7 Noah Gragson and No. 16 Todd Gilliland round out the rest of the top-five for this event.

Sprint Cup driver Chase Elliott (No. 24 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet) will be making his first NASCAR K&N Pro Series West start since 2012.

This will be his Sonoma (CA) Raceway debut in both the K&N Pro Series West and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series this weekend. In three K&N Pro Series West starts he’s collected two top fives.

Chase Elliott keeps getting closer and closer to scoring his first NASCAR Cup race. He finished second in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway with a balance of speed and fuel mileage.

This is Elliott’s fifth top-five finish in the last nine races of the season. Two of his remaining efforts in that span ended in top-10s and the worst result was a 12th. Take all considerations of him being a rookie out of the mix, and Elliott is a great value in any light. Elliott was leading the race with 50 remaining and stayed in the top five through the final 25 percent of the event.

Chase Elliott posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Firekeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway. His top speed was 201.630 mph.

NASCAR has a new low down force package this week and the rookie has no idea of how much grip the cars lost from last year. That is one reason for his speed. Another reason is that he is just flat out fast in his first full season and should be on virtually all rosters as a victory is just around the corner.

The top-two rookies of 2016 have run nose-to-tail during most of the 2016 season. For the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway, they will start side-by-side on row seven. Chase Elliott qualified 13th with a speed of 179.444 mph; Ryan Blaney was 14th at 179.379.

Elliott leads in Rookie of the Year points, but Blaney has made the battle very interesting. Both drivers have been great values during practically every race.

Rookie of the Year Chase Elliott overcame a pit road speeding penalty in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in route to an eighth-place finish. He was the top performing freshman for the 10th time this season and for the seventh straight race.

Equally important, this was his fourth consecutive top-10 finish. Predictability is hard to come by with first-year drivers, but Elliott is performing more like a veteran with every passing week.

Chase Elliott and Danica Patrick will fill out the field for the All-star race to make this a 20-car show. Elliott had the most votes among the drivers who failed to advance with Sprint Showdown segment wins. Patrick had the second most.

Elliott has a legitimate chance to win the All-star race given his strength in the Sprint Showdown segments. Patrick was not particularly strong in any of the three segments and finished only ninth among 23 cars running in the final 10-lap segment.

Chase Elliott’s remarkable rookie year in which he has finished among the top 10 in eight of 12 races and among the top five four times has made him a great Fantasy NASCAR value. His Fantasy Power Rankings—which tracks strength-based categories and points scored in major NASCAR games—ranks him 10th on the chart.

That means Elliott has been one of the top all-around values this year. His salary cap started relatively low in most games and it is still taking time to adjust. If he was locked in at a low-rate in season-long games, there is absolutely no reason to park him anytime soon. Rookies will make mistakes, but they are going to be overcome quickly in Elliott’s case.

As noted in pre-race coverage for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism, Hendrick Motorsports has seen one of their drivers win in his first attempt at Dover International Speedway and another finish second in his inaugural attempt. Chase Elliott battled Matt Kenseth and Kyle Larson for the win until the final lap, but finished third in a nail-biter. Jimmie Johnson won in his first two attempts in 2002 and Kyle Busch finished second in his first two tries in 2005.

Elliott showed his inexperience in the closing laps. Both he and Larson had considerably faster cars than the No. 20 with about 15 laps remaining. If he had allowed the No. 42 to pass for the lead, he would have followed through the opening and then battled Larson for the win. Still, third is incredibly impressive for a rookie at Dover.
