For the first time in his seven-race career on two-mile tracks, Chase Elliott finished outside the top 10. He crossed under the checkers one lap off the pace in 16th.
All four of the Hendrick Motorsports drivers failed to clear inspection before qualification and were forced to start in the back of the pack. Elliott climbed into the top 10 quickly, but once the race developed long green flag runs, he and the team were unable to keep up with the adjustments. Mar 18 - 7:08 PM

Chase Elliott and the No. 9 team has been docked 25 driver and owners points, suffered a heavy monetary fine for crew chief Alan Gustafson and lost car chief Josh Kirk for two races because of a rear end infraction found after the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway.

Hendrick Motorsports has a deep well of talent, so this will not affect their odds at Auto Club Speedway. Perhaps the most significant consequence is that it drops them from 16 and in playoff contention to 23rd.

Chase Elliott has never finished worse than second on the two-mile tracks of Auto Club Speedway and Michigan International Speedway.

While he has been much better in Michigan than California, Elliott has a lot of confidence and momentum on his side after finishing third in last week’s TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway. His best finish on this track so far was a sixth in 2016, but he should be considered a great bet to finish in the top five.

Chase Elliott finished third in the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway, which kept a perfect streak of top-12 finishes alive.

Elliott was handicapped third in this week’s Cheat Sheets, but he was a dark horse to win once the weekend started. This is the first time in 2018 that he finished in the top five and earned a result that he deserved. This could help him break out of the malaise that has hindered Hendrick Motorsports with the launch of the new Chevrolet.

Chase Elliott posted the second quickest time in final practice for the TicketGuardian 500k at ISM Raceway at 133.458 mph during his second through 11th laps on the track.

This could be a good week for Elliott to break into Victory Lane. Phoenix is a rhythm track, so long run speed is important. With the third-best pit stall, he is likely to come out of the pits with track position. The missing element may be his propensity to be slow on restarts.

Chase Elliott matched Kevin Harvick’s practice speed in Saturday’s second practice to the thousandth of a second at ISM Raceway. Elliott had the second fastest 15-lap average in practice behind Denny Hamlin and was one of only four drivers to stay out for 20+ laps. Elliott's top single lap time was 26.705 with a top speed of 134.806.

Chase Elliott finished second at ISM last fall after starting fourth. This Sunday the young driver will line up third, if he can maintain his speed during the long green-flag runs of the race as he did in practice today the young driver be seen battling for the win again. If not Elliott has finished in the top 10 in three of his four starts at the track and is a safe bet points.

Chase Elliott finished 10th in last week’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, which was his sixth consecutive top-10 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track.

Elliot had a four-race streak of top-fives on this track going when he entered Texas Motor Speedway, but could muster only an eighth in AAA 500. More has been expected from him on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but he has been very consistent with top-10s in 10 of his last 12 races; the only two times he failed to finish that well was because of crash damage. Last week’s finish raises his career, top-10 percentage on these tracks to .682.

Chase Elliott had an up and down race, but used some strategy to stay on the lead lap and finish 10th in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

That allowed Elliott to retain his perfect record of top-10s at Atlanta in every race of every series he has run. Equally important, his top-10 rounded out a great record for this week’s Cheat Sheets. Elliott was ranked fourth, but finished 10th which represented a perfect record of drivers ranked among the top 10 this year. He was six off our prediction and tied the greatest distance between prediction and result. On average, this week’s predictions were 3.7 spots off their ultimate finish.

Chase Elliott and the team "just didn’t hit it right today" and failed to advance to the second round of qualification. He will roll off the grid 27th on Sunday with a speed of 181.082 mph compared to Brad Keselowski’s 186.434.

As with Martin Truex Jr.—who failed to clear inspection—Elliott will be a hidden gem in games that offer place-differential points. He should still contend for a top-five.
Feb 23 - 5:42 PM

Chase Elliott has been almost perfect on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in more than a year with seven top-fives and two more top-10s in his last 11 tries. The only two time he failed to finish that well was because of crash damage.

Elliott finished fifth in last year’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 on his home track of Atlanta Motor Speedway and he should easily back that up on Sunday. He was second on this course type twice last fall with strong runs at Chicagoland Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. Once he breaks through with his first win, many more are going to come on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks—just like his teammate Jimmie Johnson.

Brad Keselowski spun Chase Elliott with 17 laps remaining in stage two in the Daytona 500

Elliott collected several other drivers including David Ragan and Danica Patrick in her last NASCAR Cup run. Keselowski looked to escape the carnage he started until he was clipped by Kevin Harvick - doing heavy damage to both.

Chase Elliott (No. 88 Hellmann's Chevrolet) finished 12th in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) season-opening PowerShares QQQ 300 at Florida's Daytona Int'l Speedway.

He started 8th in the lineup, led 17 laps and completed all of the 143 laps run. Elliott, a Cup series regular, is not eligible to earn points in the 2018 NXS driver championship standings.

Chase Elliott held off a determined charge by the Stewart-Haas Racing Fords of Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer to give third-year drivers a sweep of the top spot in Thursday’s qualification races for the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

This is Elliott’s second Duel win and it will line him up fourth for the 500. He has come close in the big show on a couple of occasions, but this year he seems to have learned some critical lessons and should be considered a favorite to finish in the top five.

Chase Elliott packed air underneath the Toyota of Erik Jones and sent the Joe Gibbs Racer around in the second Duel in Daytona.

The aerodynamic push was identical to what Ricky Stenhouse Jr. did to both David Gilliland and William Byron, but this time the incident was caused in part by Elliott trying to back off the Young Gun. When he hovered on the left bumper, the air eventually got packed and sent the No. 20 spinning. Jones does not appear to have sustained major damage.

In addition to driving his regular No. 9 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in Sunday's Cup Series Daytona 500, Chase Elliott will pilot the No. 88 Chevrolet for JR Motorsports in the NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) season-opening PowerShares QQQ 300 at Florida's Daytona Int'l Speedway on Saturday.

Elliott has made six NXS starts for JRM at Daytona. Within the last three, he has never finished outside the top 10: third (July 2015), first (February 2016) and ninth (July 2016). This is Elliott’s only NXS start driving the No. 88 JRM Chevrolet scheduled this season.-JRM
