Chase Elliott suffered a massive impact into the Turn 8 barrier during qualifying for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Grant Park 220 at the Chicago Street Course.

In Round 1 Group A qualifying on Saturday, Elliott misjudged his entry into Turn 7, while following behind Shane van Gisbergen. Elliott clipped the inside concrete barrier in Turn 7, which shot his car hard into the inside barrier for Turn 8.
