William Clyde " Chase " Elliott II (born November 28, 1995) is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series

Elliott and Kyle Busch had the strongest cars on the track, however Busch encountered a fuel issue early in the Final Stage, setting up a one-one-one battle with Martin Truex Jr. for the win. Despite a strong push from the defending race winner, Elliott was able to hold off Truex in the final laps.

Elliott was running second in the closing laps of the race when he received a heavy tap from Busch’s No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, sending the No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet nose-first into the inside frontstretch wall heading into Turn 1.

Elliott was unable to continue in the race, showing his frustration with Busch after exiting his race car by delivering a one-fingered gesture. Busch overtook the second-place position before a red flag was displayed for inclement weather with 22 laps remaining. The race was then declared official.

“There’s no question I made mistake and misjudged the gap,” Busch said following the race.
