Chase Elliott will return to the sport at Circuit of the Americas, albeit in the broadcast booth, Hendrick Motorsports announced March 23.

Elliott, who continues to recover from a broken leg suffered earlier this month, will appear in the FOX Sports booth remotely as a guest commentator during the NASCAR Cup Series race at the road course on March 26.
