AN ELIOTT IN VICTORY LANE AT NORTH WILKESBORO
DAWSONVILLE, Ga. (September 7, 2010) – It may not be the Elliott most of you think of when the name comes up in casual conversation but it certainly was an Elliott, the son of NASCAR champion Bill Elliott-in victory lane last weekend at the culmination of the 200 green flag lap Labor Day Classic run at the historic North Wilkesboro Speedway after nearly 14 years of the famous racetrack lying dormant. The younger Elliott, now 14, was a week shy of one year old when Jeff Gordon won the final NASCAR race at the speedway back in 1996. When Elliott arrived Sunday at the Atlanta Motor Speedway to watch Dad race, David Hyder, crew chief for the Wood Brother’s racing team informed him that he was the last model driver to win there before they closed the speedway. The senior Elliott had won three poles at the speedway and had run strong many times but never claimed a victory.
