Chase Elliott and William Byron’s contracts are set to be extended, according to Hendrick Motorsports team owner Rick Hendrick, who made the announcement Thursday at Daytona International Speedway.
In response to a query regarding when Elliott and Byron’s contracts will be extended, Hendrick remarked, “Probably any time pretty soon.” “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.”
The contracts of both Elliott and Byron are coming to an end this year. In June 2017, Elliott agreed to a four-year deal. In September 2020, Byron agreed to a two-year deal.
Byron stated he was “just focused on this weekend” when asked about his situation on Wednesday.
“I love racing for Hendrick Motorsports,” he continued. “I think we all do. Love the culture that we have. Just focused on kind of this year and having a great start to the year because I feel like last year finished off strong for all of us, and looking forward to it.”
Kyle Larson, the defending Cup winner, and Alex Bowman have contracts that run through 2023. In June of last year, Bowman agreed to a two-year contract extension. Larson agreed to a one-year extension the following month.
