#46 Alabama Pro 125 – PLM
Chase Elliott Beats Father, Field For Oct. 20 SAS Win
It wasn’t Chase Elliott’s first win at South Alabama Speedway in Opp, AL, but his October 20 win in the Alabama Pro 125 may have been a little more special than the others. The Hendrick Motorsports driver took the lead on lap 114 and pulled away from Korey Ruble to take the win in the season ending race. It was the same strategy that has carried him to numerous wins this year. What made this win more special was that the field included his father, NASCAR legend Bill Elliott. The elder Elliott surprised speedway officials Saturday morning when he entered the event. It was the first time the father and son had competed against each other in a Late Model event.
