Now, in the midst of a rookie campaign that has seen him amass 10 more top-10 results -- including six top-five finishes -- Elliott is being featured in his home state's official publication.
Elliott graces the cover of the August 2016 edition of Georgia Magazine in a story titled, "Like father, like son."
In it, author Karon Warren chronicles the rookie's rise to the Sprint Cup Series.
"I certainly wouldn't be where I am without my dad and what he's done and the opportunities he's given me along the way," Elliott said. "I'm very, very lucky for that, very fortunate for those opportunities."
The article features quotes from Elliott, his father Bill and mother Cindy, teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. and crew chief Alan Gustafson.
