Hendrick Working on Contract Extensions for Chase Elliott and William Bryon

Hendrick Motorsports team owner Rick Hendrick indicated Thursday at Daytona International Speedway that contract extensions are on the way for Chase Elliott and William Byron.

“Probably any time pretty soon,” said Hendrick in response to a question about when Elliott and Byron will have deals extended. “I want those guys to be with us forever. They’ve told me they want to be here, so I’d say you should hear something on that pretty soon.”

Both Elliott and Byron are entering the final year of their contracts. Elliott signed a four-year extension in June 2017. Byron signed a two-year extension in Sept. 2020.
