Referring to the paint scheme, Elliott said, "NAPA let me make a few decisions, which was really cool. I think the car turned out great. I hope everybody likes it. They were really open and willing to some of the ideas that we had.”
The new car sports the NAPA blue and yellow along with light blue stripes to match the NAPA drag car driven by Ron Capps. As homage to his home state of Georgia, the GA flag is located above the door by Elliott’s name.

“There's really no excuse for us to not go and try to give ourselves the chance to get in that top 16," Elliott said. "I think we have a team that's capable of doing it. I really feel like if I can do my job, we have a shot there."
During the season, Elliott will have a lot of help along the way. Gordon's crew chief, Alan Gustafson, will remain with the No. 24
“There's something really special about him and I could see it in Jeff and Jimmie," Hendrick said.
Elliott competed in five Sprint Cup Series events in 2015 and earned three top-20 finishes driving the No. 25 for HMS. His first Sprint Cup race in the No. 24 will be in February at Daytona International Speedway.
