Chase Elliott eyes victory after strong showing at Martinsville Speedway

Posted : 13 April 2024

Chase Elliott, winless in his last 42 races, showcased a strong performance at Martinsville Speedway last Sunday, positioning himself close to Victory Lane and likely reluctant to depart Virginia's track. Following Hendrick Motorsports' triumphant Cook Out 400 celebration of 40 years of success, Elliott and his teammates are set to race at Texas Motor Speedway for the AutoTrader EchoPark Automotive 400 this Sunday.


Despite finishing behind teammates William Byron and Kyle Larson, who secured the top two spots, Elliott's third-place finish in his No. 9 Chevrolet signifies a surge in momentum as the team heads to Texas. The historic 1-2-3 team finish marked a milestone in the 75-year history of racing at Martinsville Speedway, with Elliott leading for 64 laps and relishing the familiar sensation of leading the pack.


Reflecting on the race, Elliott expressed satisfaction with his performance and the team's success, particularly after a challenging period of races where he led only 23 laps in the previous seven events. He acknowledged the significance of being in contention for a win again, highlighting the importance of consistency and strong showings leading up to the Lone Star State race.


Having last tasted victory on October 2, 2022, at Talladega, Elliott's consecutive top-five finishes in 2024, including his performance at Martinsville, signal a resurgence in form and competitiveness as he aims to return to the winner's circle and secure further success in the ongoing NASCAR season.
