Chase Elliott finally got to celebrate his Nationwide Series championship after he finished 17th in the season finale Saturday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Elliott became the youngest champion in NASCAR history last week when he wrapped up the title at Phoenix International Raceway.

All that was missing was the trophy presentation in Victory Lane that he got at Homestead.

The 18-year-old rookie is the youngest driver to win a title in any of NASCAR's three national series. He broke the mark set by Brian Vickers, who was 20 when he won the Nationwide title in 2003.

Matt Kenseth got the jump on the final restart in overtime to earn his first win of the season in any NASCAR series.
