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

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.

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.

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.

Chase Elliott will make his Sprint Cup Series debut in the No. 25 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet SS for Hendrick Motorsports this Sunday, March 29, at Martinsville Speedway.

Although Elliott is making an attempt at his first Cup Series start Sunday, in two previous NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at Martinsville, Elliott completed 100 percent of his total laps run (450) with an average finish of 13th at the oldest and shortest (0.526-mile oval) in-use NASCAR facility. His Martinsville debut came April 6, 2013, in the Hendrick Motorsports-owned No. 94 Chevrolet, finishing sixth. His second attempt at the "paperclip" was Saturday, October 26, when he finished 20th. Elliott, at the age of 19 years, four months and one day, will become the 12th youngest NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver to debut in the sport.-Hendrick Motorsports

Chase Elliott looks to finish off the West Coast swing on a high note this weekend when the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) makes its annual stop at Auto Club Speedway. He finished sixth a season ago at Auto Club and hopes to increase that margin by five positions Saturday.

An uncharacteristic 28th-place finish at Daytona left Elliott 20th in the points standings. After Atlanta, he climbed to eighth in the championship following a fifth-place finish. Elliott carried the momentum to Las Vegas, where a fifth-place run gained him three more positions in the standings. The NAPA AUTO PARTS team followed suit with a hard-fought effort last week at Phoenix, which netted a seventh-place finish. The team’s tenacity propelled Elliott to his current spot of fourth in the standings.-JR Motorsports

The last time Chase Elliott, driver of the No. 9 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet, saw Phoenix International Raceway (PIR), he was on the brink of a championship and focused on a single point. Just one point, actually. One point more than the runner-up in the standings was all he needed to clinch the 2014 championship.

Elliott’s fifth-place run last November at PIR earned him the necessary points and solidified his championship quest one week before the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It marked the first time a driver clinched the championship before the season finale since Brad Keselowski did it in 2010.-JR Motorsports

Returning this weekend as the reigning series champion, Elliott, a native of nearby Dawsonville, Ga., is focused on defending the title and winning in front of his hometown crowd.-JR Motorsports
