Chase Elliott, No. 24 HendrickCars.com Chevrolet Silverado
Notes & Quotes:
- Chase Elliott started 16th for the Baptist Health 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Elliott started off the race with a very tight handling Chevy Silverado. The team pitted during both the first and second stage breaks to free the truck up. Elliott inherited the lead late in the race after not pitting, but dropped back in the pack after the race went back green due to worn tires. The No. 24 team got the caution they needed late in the race and pitted for fresh tires. Elliott climbed through the field in the closing laps of the race to finish fourth.
- Elliott led one time for a total of three laps.
“We purposely saved a set of tires for late in the race, we were trying to set ourselves up with the best chance to win tonight. We really needed that last caution to come in and take advantage of that fresh set of tires, unfortunately we just didn’t have enough time to get back up to the front at the end. I need to thank HendrickCars.com for coming on board tonight and GMS for everything they’ve done the last few weeks putting these trucks together. It’s been a lot of fun to run these last few truck races.”
