Wed, 06 Aug 2014 21:27:52 -0700

Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick said Wednesday, Aug. 6, that Nationwide Series phenom Chase Elliott likely will run in a few Sprint Cup Series races in 2015. "We haven't arrived at that decision for sure, but I think you'll probably see him run a few races next year," Hendrick said. "Before he ever won a Nationwide race, I watched him test (Jimmie Johnson's) car and (Jeff Gordon's) car at Nashville, and Jimmie and Jeff both commented to me, 'This kid is super smooth and super fast. He takes care of his equipment, and he doesn't get in a jam'."

JR Motorsports car owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. said Saturday, May 17, that there is no rush to promote driver Chase Elliott to the Sprint Cup Series, and he insists there is a two-year plan and he is sticking to it. "We have like a two-year plan, I suppose, that he runs in the Nationwide Series, and I think you just stick with the plan regardless of the success he is having," Earnhardt said. "You have the commitments in line with sponsors and what have you, so I think it will suit him well to relax and not have to worry about that and just follow the plan that he has had in front of him from the start."
