A senior NASCAR official anticipates Chase Elliott receiving a waiver to be playoff eligible when Elliott returns to competition, citing a similar situation to when Tony Stewart was granted a waiver for an off-track injury.

Elton Sawyer, NASCAR senior vice president of competition, made the comment Tuesday on “The Morning Drive” on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Asked about the possibility of granting a waiver to Elliott once he‘s medically cleared to return, Sawyer told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio: “I wouldn‘t see any reason that he wouldn‘t be granted a waiver, but we‘ll go through that process and make sure we‘re checking all the boxes.”
