CONCORD, N.C. – Newly crowned champion Chase Elliott joined host Dale Earnhardt Jr. on “The Dale Jr. Download” this week for a wide-ranging discussion.

The former Hendrick Motorsports teammates spent plenty of time discussing the No. 9 team’s road map to the playoffs, how Elliott performs best under pressure and recalling what the 48 hours after clinching the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series title were like, including support from his hometown Dawsonville, Georgia, community and celebrating the honor with his father, NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott. 

Earnhardt closes the podcast with a heartfelt message, encouraging Elliott to have fun and to take time to enjoy his accomplishment.
