DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Hendrick Motorsports has signed 15-year-old Chase Elliott to a driver development deal.
Elliott is the son of 1988 NASCAR champion Bill Elliott.
He will receive support as he drives Chevrolets for Bill Elliott Racing until he turns 18 and is eligible to run in NASCAR national series events.
NASCAR last week lowered the age limit to 15 for regional touring series events, and Elliott will enter a combination of super late model, pro late model and NASCAR regional touring series events this season.
Elliott won 13 late model races last year and had 37 top-10 finishes in 40 starts.
