Ticker – Chase Elliott out of NASCAR indefinitely after tibia surgery

Chase Elliott is out indefinitely after undergoing a successful three-hour surgery to repair a fractured tibia, Hendrick Motorsports general manager Jeff Andrews said Saturday. He was second last week in Fontana, California, in the series’ second event of the season. Elliott was involved in a crash the week before at the Daytona 500. He is a second-generation driver and the son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott. The Georgia native is NASCAR’s five-time fan-voted most popular driver.
