Description

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is joined by Chase Elliott to unveil Elliott’s upcoming No. 9 throwback paint scheme and chat about the NextGen car and his return from injury last year. After surprising Dale with a tribute to his 2014 Daytona 500 winning car, the guys discussed Sunday’s chaotic Cup race at Bristol and Chase's impressions on the NextGen car in general. Chase reveals that after getting off to a good start in 2022, he feels like his performance has fallen off due to his traditional driving style not being as compatible in the new car. He explains that he spent the end of the 2023 season making adjustments and has enjoyed the challenge of getting up to speed.

Dale asks Chase about his involvement in the “NASCAR: Full Speed” Netflix Series, to which he replied that he wasn’t sure he’d like to be involved if it was a hindrance to his racing preparation. They discuss Chase’s life in Dawsonville, Georgia and what it’s like working with the Hendrick Motorsports team based in the Charlotte area. The conversation also unpacks Chase’s 2023 snowboard-related leg injury and what that day was like for him, from the actual accident itself to making calls to Alan Gustafson and Rick Hendrick. Chase is candid about the rehabilitation process and what he did to return to racing.
