HOT – Chase Elliott

He may not be in the Sprint Cup Series but this kid is on fire. Elliott is only a handful of races into his Nationwide rookie season and he already has two wins. What is more exciting than winning two races? How about winning those two races back-to-back? If you calculate the week off into the equation, Elliott hasn’t lost a race in almost a month. At the young age of 18 years old, Elliott has already set the NASCAR world ablaze with talks about when he will come to Sprint Cup.  Whenever he moves up you can assured that he will probably be bringing a Nationwide Series Championship or two with him.
