Chase Elliot, the reigning 5x Most Popular Driver in Nascar is set to make his return to the track this weekend at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia now that he's completely healed from an injury that kept him out of the car for 6 weeks.

And then two weeks later, the 27-year-old who suffered an injury during a snowboarding accident in March, will be making his way to Upstate New York for a grand opening celebration in Ballston Spa at NAPA Auto Parts.

NAPA Auto Parts is one of Elliot's main sponsors, and the Hendrick's Motorsports star will be here the weekend of April 28th and 29th at the newest automotive parts and accessory store.
