Chase Elliott may not be in the No. 9 Chevrolet for Sunday’s Cup Series race at Circuit of the Americas but that will not keep the sport’s most popular driver away from the track activities.
Ricky Taylor will drive the Hendrick Motorsports No. 9 entry this weekend taking the reigns from Josh Berry as the organization fills the seat for Elliott who is out after suffering a fractured tibia while snowboarding.
Elliott will be part of the FOX Sports broadcast of the race remotely. Coverage of the event is set to start at 3:30 pm ET.
The 2020 Cup Series champion claimed a rain shortened win in the inaugural race at COTA in 2021.
