Another Elliott Is Awesome In NASCAR

He’s known as “Awesome Bill from Dawsonville” and he was one of NASCAR’s biggest winners and most popular drivers. Georgia native Bill Elliott has obviously passed on his knowledge, skills and abilities to the next generation.

Elliott’s son Chase scored his first career win in just his sixth NASCAR Nationwide Series start a week ago at Texas Motor Speedway. He beat several of NASCAR’s top stars to the checkered flag including Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, Kevin Harvick, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Matt Kenseth who finished second through sixth.

With the win, Chase Elliott became the second youngest winner in Nationwide Series history (Joey Logano is the youngest) and then headed back home – not to do a lot of celebrating but to do some homework and continue finishing up his senior year in high school. High school notwithstanding, Elliott kept up his winning ways this week at the track known as “too tough to tame” as he again scored victory in the Nationwide Series race at the Darlington Raceway Friday night. The 18-year-old rookie passed Elliott Sadler on the final lap for his second straight win.

In qualifying for tonight’s Sprint Cup Series Southern 500 at Darlington, Kevin Harvick won the pole and Texas winner Joey Logano will start alongside on the front row. Defending champion Jimmie Johnson is still looking to pick up his first win of the season and will start 26th. Here is the complete lineup.
