CONCORD, N.C. -- NASCAR suspended Chase Elliott for one race on Tuesday, one day after the five-time most popular driver and former Cup champion deliberately wrecked Denny Hamlin in the Coca-Cola 600.

Hendrick Motorsports said in a statement it will not appeal the suspension and Corey LaJoie will replace Elliott in the No. 9 Chevrolet this weekend at Gateway, outside of St. Louis.

"We understand NASCAR's need to maintain consistency in its officiating," Hendrick Motorsports said in a statement.
