N'wide ride for Chase Elliott eyed
Chase Elliott is coming off a win in the ARCA series last weekend at Pocono with Aaron's as his primary sponsor. He has finished sixth, fifth and fourth in three starts for Hendrick in the Truck Series with Aaron's on the hood.
Asked about his plans for 2014, Hendrick, a co-owner of JR Motorsports, said "Hopefully, in the Nationwide Series.''
Hendrick didn't rule out Aaron's being the sponsor.
"They like him a lot,'' Hendrick said before Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway. "They've been with him since he started. We've had a lot of interest in him -- a lot of interest.
"I tell you, his record in Trucks, and that [Pocono] race, it was pretty awesome.''
Hendrick signed Elliott to a multiyear deal in 2011.
"Such a good young man,'' Hendrick said. "With his name, his looks, he's going to have a terrific career in this sport. His mom and dad have done such a good job with him. He's just one of the neatest guys. He'll be good for our sport.''
