Sunday at Martinsville Speedway, Chase Elliott led his Hendrick Motorsports teammates to the checkered flag with a third-place finish, picking up a Stage 2 win along the way.

Although Elliott is still hungry for his first NASCAR Cup Series victory, he recognizes the improvements that he and the No. 24 SunEnergy1 Chevrolet SS team have made.

“For me, at this place I was way much improved than I’ve ever been here in the past,” Elliott said. “This is such an important race, especially when you come back here in the fall, it’s not a place that you can just get by with running bad in life.”

Elliott is happy with the team’s progress and looks forward to using this knowledge and experience when they return to Martinsville in October.

“I was really proud of our improvements this weekend,” he said. “I really hope that we’ve found something or I have found something at this track that will lend some more consistent finishes that are further towards the front.”
