About Chase Elliott

William Clyde Elliott II renowned popularly as Chase Elliott is an American professional stock car racing driver who competes full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series, driving the No. 9 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE for Hendrick Motorsports, and part-time in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, driving the No. 24 Chevrolet Silverado for GMS Racing. He won the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series championship, becoming the first rookie to win a national series championship in NASCAR and the youngest champion in that series. He was also named the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year. Recently, he won the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series championship. 

Chase Elliott on Sunday won the biggest race of his life rallying from having to drop to the rear of the field during the initial pace laps to cross the Phoenix Raceway finish line first in the Series Finale 500 earning his first career NASCAR Cup Series championship at the age of 24. The result made Hendrick Motorsports driver Elliott the youngest champion in NASCAR's premier series in 25 years. He won by 2.74 seconds over fellow title contender Brad Keselowski from Team Penske. Team Penske's Joey Logano was third and Joe Gibbs Racing's Denny Hamlin finished fourth. Seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson, 45, was fifth in his final race as a full-time Cup Series driver, and he congratulated his young Hendrick Motorsports teammate Elliott on-track and later on pit lane; a fitting symbol of the sport's "changing of the guard."
