Chase Elliott Crowned 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series Champion

AVONDALE, Ariz. (Nov. 8, 2014) – Chase Elliott, driver of the No. 9 NAPA Chevrolet Camaro, claimed the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) championship with a fifth-place finish in the DAV 200 at Phoenix International Raceway. His title, the first for Elliott and first for team owner Dale Earnhardt, Jr., marks Chevrolet’s 18th Driver’s Championship since the inception of the series in 1982.

“On behalf of Chevrolet, congratulations to Chase Elliott and the No. 9 Camaro team on winning the NASCAR Nationwide Series Driver’s Championship,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. Vice President Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Chase and the crew demonstrated great teamwork and that never-give-up attitude. Congratulations to Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Kelly Earnhardt-Miller and the entire JR Motorsports organization on this accomplishment.”

In his first year of NNS competition, Elliott has piloted the Chevy Camaro to three wins, 16 top-five and 26 top-10 finishes to date. At 18 years of age he is the youngest title winner in any of NASCAR’s three national series.

Elliott joins 14 other Team Chevy drivers to record this achievement.  Others include: Austin Dillon (2013), Clint Bowyer (2008), Martin Truex, Jr. (2004-05), Brian Vickers (2003), Kevin Harvick (2001 & ‘06), Jeff Green (2000), Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (1998-99), Randy LaJoie (1996-97), Johnny Benson (1995), David Green (1994), Steve Grissom (1993), Joe Nemechek (1992) and Larry Pearson (1987).
