Chase Elliott is finally a NASCAR Cup Series champion at just the age of 24. The Georgia born won Sunday’s Season Finale playoff race at Phoenix Raceway to secure his first ever NASCAR Cup Series title.
“We did it. We did it. That’s all I got to tell you,” Elliott explained. “Unreal. Championship crew chief Alan Gustafson is now a NASCAR Cup Series champion and very deserving. I can’t say enough about our group we took some strides this year.”
