Elliott signed a five-year extension on Saturday afternoon.

“I feel so fortunate to be in this position,” said Chase Elliott, who will drive the No. 9 NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in today’s DAYTONA 500. “I have a great team with leadership from Alan (Gustafson, crew chief) and the support of the best car owner and racing organization in the world. For me, there’s a lot of pride in driving for Hendrick Motorsports and having the opportunity to win races and compete for championships. We are capable of accomplishing a lot more and it starts today.”

The 26-year-old has competed in six NASCAR Cup Series seasons. He has never missed a race during the time.

He has competed in 221 NASCAR Cup Series events since the 2015 season. The Dawsonville, Georgia icon, who is the son of Bill Elliott, has 13 wins.

Elliott has been affiliated with Hendrick Motorsports since he was 15-years-old in 2011.

“Chase is a champion on and off the track,” Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick said. “His talent inside the race car is undeniable, and he’s just scratching the surface of what he can do. This is a young man who is mature beyond his years, comes from an incredible family, and is humble, hardworking, and never takes anything for granted. As long as Chase is driving, we want him right here with Hendrick Motorsports.
