Bill Elliott Adds To Winning Weekend For Elliott Family

You may have heard that a race car driver with the last name of Elliott won a stock car race over the weekend.

But which Elliott?

If your answer was either Bill or Chase Elliott you would have been right on both counts.

Chase Elliott got the headlines after he claimed his first Cup win of the year Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway, a track his father won at twice.

But the elder Elliott wasn’t in attendance due to his own racing obligations.

The previous day, the 1988 Cup champion took part in the Historic Sportscar Racing Mitty at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia.

Driving a 2006 No. 9 Dodge Cup car, Bill Elliott led every lap of the Stock Car Feature Race, which had 21 entries.

While Chase Elliott’s father wasn’t in Talladega, his mother Cindy saw him win a Cup race in person for the first time.

“My mom missed all of the wins last year,” Chase Elliott said Sunday. “My dad was at two of the three. She got to one‑up him today, which was neat.”
