Chase Elliott & NAPA Auto Parts Sign With JR Motorsports for 2014 Season

The championship battle and race for victories has just gotten more interesting in 2014.

JR Motorsports announced earlier today that Chase Elliott would join their organization in 2014 with a full-time deal in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Elliott will pilot the #9 NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro in 2014 while competing for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship.

Chase Elliott is not a stranger to victory lane. Elliott became the youngest winner in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series - a record that would be broken later in the season by Erik Jones - when Elliott scored his first win in the Camping World Truck Series at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in only his sixth start of the season. The victory at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park would only add to the impressive resume of the 18-year old Elliott who is accustomed to winning some of the biggest races in short track racing history.

The deal will keep NAPA Auto Parts in NASCAR after pulling their sponsorship during year one of a three year deal with Michael Waltrip Racing. NAPA pulled their sponsorship following the involvement in the team orders scandal at Richmond back in September of 2013. A statement released by NAPA would indicate their plans to "evaluate our future position in motorsports" which has led them to a multi-year deal with Chase Elliott and JR Motorsports.

Chase Elliott has a bright future ahead of him with his alliance with Sprint Cup Series powerhouse Hendrick Motorsports. The pairing between Elliott and NAPA will benefit both parties moving forward.
