Chase Elliott, driver of the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, suffered from flu-like symptoms prior to Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Elliott plans to start the race, but in case he is unable to complete the scheduled race distance, Justin Allgaier is on standby to replace Elliott, if needed.
Allgaier competes full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for JR Motorsports, co-owned by Hendrick Motorsports driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr. HMS owner Rick Hendrick also is a co-owner of JR Motorsports.
Allgaier has two years of full-time Sprint Cup experience, gained in 2014 and 2015. After driving an HScott Motorsports entry for two seasons, he returned to Xfinity Series competition in 2016.
Elliott made the 2016 Chase for the Sprint Cup, but he has already been eliminated from championship contention. He was eliminated at the end of the round of 12 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway last month.
