Later this month, Chase Elliott is set to compete in the Snowball Derby. Already, he has competed several times and won twice. In fact, the first time he won the race, he became the youngest race winner. However, the 2020 edition will be the first time he competes as a NASCAR champion.

In an Instagram post, Elliott teased a team up with an old spotter. However, the 25-year-old remained coy on the details. Normally, this race is run in the first week of December, though it is sometimes held in the second week. Now, Chase Elliott will be eager to try and gun for a third win.

Chase Elliott and his history at the Snowball Derby

He first competed in the race when he was just 14-years old and took that first win when he was 16. That triumph came in the year 2011, and he added another one to his belt in 2015. Hopefully, the 2020 edition will be kind to him and he can walk away with another trophy in the bag.

However, he will not be the sole NASCAR presence there. Derek Kraus, Chandler Smith, and Ty Majeski have been confirmed to race there.

Meanwhile, the likes of Kyle Busch, Erik Jones, John Hunter Nemechek, Christian Eckes, and Noah Gragson have racked up wins. Busch and Jones are the only other drivers with multiple wins in the Snowball Derby.

In other words, Chase Elliott is tied with Busch and Jones but will be keen to break that deadlock. Additionally, he will also be under a tiny bit of pressure to keep up the streak of NASCAR winners.

Kyle Busch started the streak and everyone has kept it, until ARCA Menards driver, Travis Braden, in 2019. Needless to say, Elliott will be dying for the chance to go racing one last time before 2020 closes out for good.
