Chase Elliott was born less than 100 miles from Atlanta in the city of Dawsonville.

The Hendrick driver has been an allegiant fan of the Braves for a long time. In a recent interview, he expressed his excitement and described the Braves going in the final as a big deal.

“The Braves have been trying to get back to the World Series for a long time. And I already kinda knew that storyline. I’ve been a fan long enough to appreciate that…it is a big deal for everyone around home.”

Chase Elliott would want to celebrate another title with the Braves

Yes, the 25-year-old is in a celebratory mood for his team’s MLB win, but he can’t afford to remain so for long.

Elliott will take part in the NASCAR Cup Series finale in Phoenix on Sunday. Heading into the race, the No.9 driver is the defending champion. He will look to repeat last year’s result and prevent his rivals from stealing his crown.

Last year, Elliott celebrated his first Cup Series title in his hometown of Dawsonville.
