Last year as a rookie, Elliott finished eighth in this race and he'll be one of the favorites going into Atlanta this week.

"I raced a lot of legend and bandolero races there on the front straightaway, so that was one of my home tracks, so to speak, when I was short-track racing and certainly is my home track now," said Elliott. "Atlanta will always be special to me and hopefully we can go there for a long time and try to have some good runs along the way."
