Chase Elliott to miss NASCAR Cup race at Las Vegas, Josh Berry in

LAS VEGAS — Chase Elliott will miss this Sunday’s Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway due to a leg injury.

Josh Berry will fill in for Elliott and drive the Hendrick Motorsports No. 9 Chevrolet.

The team confirmed Saturday that Elliott fractured his left tibia while snowboarding in Colorado. The 2020 Cup champion underwent successful, 3-hour surgery Friday night.

“Chase’s health is our primary concern,” Rick Hendrick said. “He’s spoken with several members of our team and is understandably disappointed to miss time in the car. Of course, he has our full support, and we’ll provide any resources he needs. We hope to share another update later this weekend.”
