On Sunday, Chase Elliott scored his third win of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season and his first career Cup win at home track Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Elliott won Sunday’s race under caution after he narrowly defended the lead against Corey LaJoie.
LaJoie’s attempt to pass Elliott on the final lap ended with contact between them, causing LaJoie to crash in Turn 2. LaJoie was credited with a 21st-place finish.
Elliott leads the Cup regular season standings by 47 points over Blaney (684-637) with seven races left before the playoffs begin.
