Chase Elliott, driver of the NAPA 9 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, makes a good case for the 2014 Most Popular Driver award. The 18-year-old rookie leads in series standings, a position he’s held since his July victory at Chicagoland Speedway. He’s not only fast but a fan favorite, too, with more than 100,000 Facebook and Twitter followers.
But those impressive stats do not make Elliott a shoe-in for the coveted Most Popular Driver award. NASCAR relies on fans like you to determine the winner, and Chase Elliott needs your votes.
