Chase Elliott led the field to green in the first Can-Am Duel at Daytona and led them to the checkers as well to win.
Elliott already had the pole for the Daytona 500 with his fastest lap in qualification last Sunday. He did not need to take any risks, but wanted the victory and the 10 championship points that went along with it. Elliott led much of the final segment of the race and applied a lesson learned from Brad Keselowski by leading first one line then the other in the draft. Feb 23 - 8:22 PM

Chase Elliott posted a lap of 46.663 and has locked down the pole for the Daytona 500.

The front row has the only positions locked into the race regardless of the driver’s finish position in Thursday’s qualification races. Chase Elliott won last year’s pole, but sustained crash damage to finish 37th. He will line up alongside Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the outside pole. Alan Gustafson is the first crew chief since Chase’s uncle Ernie Elliott to win three in a row.

Chase Elliott kept his nose clean in Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts Clash and finished seventh.

Elliott did not spend a lot of time at the very front of the pack, so it will be difficult to use his performance in this race to help handicap the Daytona 500. Young Guns are often crash prone, however, and discretion suggests waiting to start him until Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Chase Elliott, the Dawsonville, Georgia native, will make his debut in The Clash at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, Feb. 18.

Elliott secured his entry into the 75-lap exhibition race with his 2016 Daytona 500 pole award. He kicked off last season by becoming the youngest Daytona 500 pole winner of all time and followed that up by collecting the pole award at Talladega in May. He also amassed 10 top-five and 17 top-10 finishes and led 358 laps en route to a playoff berth and the 2016 Sunoco Rookie of the Year title. On Friday, Feb. 17, Elliott will begin his sophomore Cup Series season by removing the yellow rookie stripe from the bumper of the No. 24 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet SS with crew chief Alan Gustafson.-Hendrick Motorsports

Chase Elliott has been consistent at Daytona International Speedway in two starts, but that does not mean he has been a good value.

Elliott sustained crash damage in both races on this track last year and finished well off the lead lap in the 30s. He managed to keep his car running, however, and that at least gave him some experience in the draft. Elliott will be much stronger on other, more predictable courses. He is a bad value for the Daytona 500.

Hooters has joined 12-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports as a primary sponsor of driver Chase Elliott and the No. 24 Chevrolet SS team beginning in 2017.

A casual dining establishment with a deep history in NASCAR, Hooters will be a two-race primary sponsor and full-season associate sponsor of the No. 24 team in both 2017 and 2018. The Hooters Chevrolet SS will debut May 7 at Talladega and again during the Chase for the NASCAR Cup Nov. 12 at Phoenix. Hooters has been a primary sponsor in more than 150 Cup-level races, notably as the full-season sponsor of 1992 premier series champion Alan Kulwicki. That year, Kulwicki won two races and narrowly edged Elliott’s father, 1988 Cup champion Bill Elliott, by 10 points to win the title.-Hendrick Motorsports

Fantasy owners should not expect much of a letdown for Chase Elliott. With Hendrick Motorsports resources, he should be able to avoid the sophomore slump.

One reason for this projection is that he has already experienced a minor version of that curse. He came out of the blocks so strong as a rookie that he recorded 11 top-10s in the first 15 races and came one position shy of winning at Michigan International Speedway in June. Elliott had only six top-10s in the final 21 races, but he ended the season with a five-race streak of top-15s. He will continue to be uneven in 2017, but should be a top value in most games.

Chase Elliott finished 11th in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway and narrowly missed finishing in the top 10 in yet another inaugural race on a track.

Top-10s are hard to come by at Homestead. With the exception of racers in the first event on this configuration, only two earned top-10s in their first attempt. For most of the Ford 400 it appeared Elliott would join David Ragan and Clint Bowyer—both of whom finished 10th in their first attempt—but he wound up just one position short.

Chase Elliott scraped the wall in final practice for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but the damage was minimal enough that a backup car will not be required.

Elliott all-but crashed and showed remarkable car control to keep from hitting the wall hard. He was running fifth on the speed chart at the time.

Chase Elliott backed up an eighth-place Phoenix International Raceway finish this spring with a ninth in Sunday’s Can-Am 500 to sweep the top 10 on this track.

Elliott spent a third of the race among the top five and nearly all of it in the top 10. He was a valuable addition to fantasy rosters this week as he closes out the season strong. Homestead-Miami Speedway will showcase another solid performance while he wraps up Rookie of the Year honors.

Chase Elliott finished eighth this spring after starting the Good Sam 500 17th.

Now that the pressure of the playoffs is off his shoulders, Elliott’s spring attempts on tracks are more predictive. Last week at Texas, he earned a second top-five in two races on that track and the odds are good he will finish in the top 10 again this week.

Chase Elliott finished fourth in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Elliott finished fifth in his Texas debut this spring, so he improved by one spot. The No. 24 has either been great or suffered catastrophe on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in 2016. He will be a favorite to finish in the top five at Homestead-Miami Speedway in two weeks.

Chase Elliott has either finished in the top 10 or the 30s in his last nine efforts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

He has always shown speed, but has been plagued by accidents. If he stays out of trouble he will be a good value; unfortunately it is impossible to predict when someone else is likely to run into him.

Sprint Cup regular Chase Elliott (No. 24 Chevrolet SS), driving the Carlos Contreras owned No. 71 NAPA Auto Parts/Valvoline Chevrolet Silverado), won the Keystone Light 21 Means 21 Pole Award for today's Texas Roadhouse 200 (96.254 mph).

This is his second pole in ten NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races. It is his first pole and first top-10 start in 2016 and his first pole in three NCWTS races at Martinsville Speedway. XFINITY Series regular Daniel Suarez (starts second) posted his eighth top-10 NCWTS start of 2016 and his third in four truck races at Martinsville. Cole Custer (third), the fastest qualifying Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender, posted his fifth top-10 start at Martinsville and his 10th in 20 races this season.

Chase Elliott finished 12th in the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and failed to advance to the third round of the Chase for the Championship.

Elliott needed to either win the race or have several contenders fail to finish with results in the high-30s. Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski blew engines, but that only lifted him one position off the bottom of the grid. Elliott was involved in an accident that was not of his making at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but it might have been a risky setup with his back wheels at Kansas Speedway that ultimately cost him.
