Elliott wins 7th Cup Series win at Alsco Uniforms 500

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Chase Elliott is on a hot streak right now. In fact, he has won the last two NASCAR races in three days.

Elliott won the Alsco Uniforms 500 on Thursday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. He also won the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 on Tuesday night at the same facility.

“It was just — we battled hard and finally got our car good enough there at the end,” Elliott said. “I’m not sure that we had it exactly perfect, but the guys did a great job making good adjustments and good pit stops there to put us in a position, and I think the race going long played into our favor as compared to what Kevin had to work with.  Just had some good fortune and things went our way.  Just appreciate all our partners for sticking with us.  Finally good to get a Kelley Blue Book win.  That’s our first win together, so hopefully many more.

This is Elliott’s seventh career win in the NASCAR Cup Series. His last two wins in the Cup Series have come at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Last year, he won the Bank of America ROVAL 400 on Sept. 29, 2019 on the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course.

Elliott also has two wins at Watkins Glen, Dover, Kansas, and Talladega.

This was the first-time he won under the Kelly Blue Book sponsorship. Three of his twins came with NAPA Auto Parts on the car and two were under Mountain Dew. His first career win in 2018 came with Sun Energy 1 on the car.

Denny Hamlin finished second. Ryan Blaney — who finished in the Top 3 on Sunday following Jimmie Johnson’s failed inspection — finished in the Top 3 on Thursday.

All three drivers finished with different manufacturers. Elliott drove a Chevrolet, while Hamlin drove a Toyota. Blaney was the only Ford driver.
