Elliott Finishes Seventh in Rain-Shortened Clash at Daytona

Chase Elliott battled through the field and weather delays to finish seventh in the rain-shortened Clash at Daytona.

Elliott and the Mountain Dew Team Rubicon team started The Clash at Daytona International Speedway from the rear of the field in a backup car following an accident during Saturday’s lone practice session.

Elliott gradually made his way forward through the pack before rain brought up the first red flag of the race after just eight laps. The driver of the No. 9 headed to pit road once the race returned to a caution and continued his ascent up the leaderboard when the green flag waved once again.
