GA native gears up for Daytona 500

ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) - Racing season kicks off this weekend with the Daytona 500.

Before the race, we got a chance to talk with a Georgia-native who looks to have a big season on the track.

Chase Elliott held a press conference Tuesday morning to give an update on this season.

Elliott is changing his number from 24 to number 9, which was his dad's number.

The Race begins on Sunday, Feb. 18 at 2:30 p.m. ET on News Leader 9 at Fox 54.
