The picture at the top of this post might become a familiar sight in the coming years. Chase Elliott, in victory lane, celebrating a pole for a Sprint Cup race.

But after today, that sight will be a little different. From now on Elliott will get to celebrate the Coors Light Pole Award instead of the 21 Means 21 Pole Award.

The son of NASCAR Hall of Famer Bill Elliott turns 21 today.

It was a big year for Elliott. He finally went full-time in Cup driving the famous No. 24, he won the pole for his first Daytona 500, won the Xfinity Series opener at Daytona and qualified for his first Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Here’s how NASCAR Twitter has celebrated Elliott’s birthday, beginning with a special message and photo from his mother, Cindy Elliott.
