#21 Carolina 200- Pro Cup
Elliott Gets His First USAR Pro Cup Victory
Chase Elliott and his Aaron’s/HendrickCars.com crew took a page from the same playbook that propelled Regan Smith to victory at Darlington and Matt kenseth at Dover and used it to win the Carolina 200 presented by Black’s Tire and Auto Service at Rockingham Speedway on Saturday. It was Elliott’s first win the USAR Pro Cup Series and the second of his career at Rockingham Speedway, the track where his father Bill Elliott made his first Sprint Cup start and where he got the most recent of his 44 Cup victories. Elliott and his crew are focusing on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series this season, but driver and crew decided two weeks before the race that some seat time in a similar car would be worth the effort.
