Chase Elliott will have a new spotter for the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series campaign, Hendrick Motorsports confirmed Monday.

Eddie D’Hondt announced his departure from the team via X, formerly known as Twitter, on Saturday, marking the end of a 12-year tenure at Hendrick and parting ways with Elliott after eight years atop the stand for the six-time most popular driver.

D’Hondt formerly spotted for Jeff Gordon for four years ahead of his time with Elliott, sticking with what was then the No. 24 team after Gordon’s 2015 retirement. D’Hondt was victorious six times with Gordon and was on the radio for all 18 of Elliott’s Cup Series wins so far, which includes the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series championship to boot.

A spokesperson for Hendrick Motorsports said the team is still solidifying plans for who will serve as Elliott’s spotter in 2024 and beyond, while D’Hondt has not yet announced his future plans.
