Chase Elliott 2020 Highlights

2020 was a standout year for Chase, Hendrick Motorsports, and UniFirst Racing. Besides Chase’s iconic championship win, the 25-year-old completed the 2020 season with four other first-place finishes in addition to a victory at the popular NASCAR All-Star Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Chase was also named NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver for the third consecutive season.

The No. 9 UniFirst Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE made its 2020 NASCAR debut on March 8 at Phoenix Raceway, with Elliott starting from the pole position and leading 93 laps en route to a top-10 finish. In July, he piloted the UniFirst Chevy to an exciting first-place finish and the $1 million grand prize at the popular NASCAR All-Star Race. In a rare feat, Elliott joined his father, Bill Elliott, as winners of the annual event.

The UniFirst Chevy’s final appearance in the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series came on September 27 at the South Point 400 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Elliott and the No. 9 UniFirst team began the playoff race in the third spot, led the pack for 73 laps, and earned a Stage 2 victory.

Elliott ultimately cruised through much of the NASCAR playoffs, earning top-six finishes in five of his next six races. On November 8, Elliott made history by winning the 2020 Cup Series championship in Phoenix. The 24-year-old became the third-youngest driver in NASCAR history to earn the championship and, along with his father, joined Lee and Richard Petty and Ned and Dale Jarrett as the third father/son duo to earn NASCAR Cup titles.

Chase has been on the professional racing scene since he was featured in Sports Illustrated at just 13 years old. After joining Hendrick Motorsports in 2011, the young driver proceeded to make appearances in the stock car touring series, the NASCAR Truck Series, and the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Elliott made his official NASCAR Cup Series debut in 2015, and he earned the league’s Rookie of the Year award the following season.

Since then, Elliott has been one of the sport’s most recognizable faces, and he’s backed up his popularity with consistent showings on the track:

  • 2017: Ranked 5th, 12 top-five finishes, 560 laps led
  • 2018: Ranked 6th, 3 wins, 11 top-five finishes, 325 laps led
  • 2019: Ranked 10th, 3 wins, 11 top-five finishes, 601 laps led
  • 2020: Ranked 1st, 5 wins, 15 top-five finishes, 1,247 laps led
