Magazine pays Chase Elliot the ultimate compliment


From Hendricks Motorsports

Athlon Sports just came out with its annual NASCAR Preview edition, and a familiar face appeared on the front.

Chase Elliott adorns the magazine's cover, and he was deemed "NASCAR's next superstar."

Athlon Sports sat down with Elliott and asked him about the switch from the No. 24 car to the No. 9 car, the former number of his father, Bill Elliott.


"The No. 9 is just home for me," Elliott said. "It's a good fit. Anybody who has followed my career for any length of time knows that's been my number."

The preview edition goes in-depth into the upcoming seasons for all four Hendrick Motorsports teammates - Elliott, William Byron, Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman.
