#42 Cottonmouth 100 – PLM
Chase Elliott Grabs Aug. 3 Viper Win At South Alabama
There was a surprise late entry for South Alabama Speedway’s Viper Series Cottonmouth 100 on August 3. But it wasn’t a surprise when he pulled into victory lane after the 100-lap Pro Late Model event around the famed Opp, AL speedway. Bill Elliott Racing notified the track late in the week that Chase Elliott would be making the trip for Saturday’s race. He flew home from Pocono, PN where he competed in an ARCA event Friday. They were the last car entering the pits Saturday, but that didn’t matter in the end. Elliott set fast time in qualifying with a time of 15.376, breaking Justin South’s long string of Viper Series poles. Inversion put Elliott fourth on the starting grid with R.S. Senter on the pole. South lined up on the outside and quickly grabbed the lead going into turn one.
