• Chase Elliott won the season-opening race for JRM in 2016.
His NXS Daytona stats include one victory, two top fives
and three top 10s along with 42 laps led.
• Elliott has made eight NXS starts at Daytona, with seven of
those being for JRM, and four in the season opener.
• Elliott will be the first of multiple drivers – including team
owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. – to run the iconic No. 8
Chevrolet for JRM.
• AfterShokz, an award-winning headphone brand known for
its patented bone conduction technology, will be on board
the No. 8. Elliott serves as a brand ambassador.
“I always enjoy racing the first race of the year in the Xfinity
Series, or any of them really for that matter. I look forward
to getting to Daytona with JRM again – I ran with them last
year. It’s great to have AfterShokz on the car. They have a
big weekend running with me in the Xfinity Series and with
Bubba (Wallace) on Sunday in the Daytona 500. It’ll be a
great way for them to step into the sport.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
