Chase Elliott sends thanks for support after leg injury

Days after breaking his leg in a snowboarding accident in Colorado, Chase Elliott took to social media to offer appreciation to those who reached out during his recovery phase.

During Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race, FOX Sports reported Elliott had successful surgery and flew home to watch the race with team members. Filling in for Elliott in his absence was Xfinity Series regular Josh Berry, who pilots the No. 8 entry for JR Motorsports and was making just his third Cup Series start and first behind the wheel of the Next Gen car.
