The 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series champion Chase Elliott will be making a pit stop in Grass Valley Thursday to meet and greet fans at Riebes Auto Parts.

“We are really excited to have (Elliott), really honored,” said Riebes Auto Parts public relations representative Jay Cooper. “We encourage young people to come out and meet a young man that is making his mark in racing.”

The 19-year-old racing phenom, who was named the Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year and Nationwide Series Most Popular Driver in 2014, will be signing autographs from 3-4 p.m. at the Riebes Auto Parts store off Idaho-Maryland Road.

Elliot, who is the son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott, is making the public appearance on his way to Fontana where the next Xfinity Series race will take place, the 300.

This season Elliott has two top-5 finishes and three top-10’s through four races in the Xfinity Series.

Riebes will also be rolling out Dale Earnhardt’s No. 3 car that was last raced at Bristol in 1995.
