The hottest driver on the Nascar Winston Cup circuit this year has been Bill Elliott, winner of three “crown jewel” races for the so-called “Winston Million”. Elliott, when reached for comment at the post-season awards banquet, summed-up his season as “Awesome”.
“Awesome”, Elliott added. “Awesome, awesome…awesome.”
Elliott won a total of 11 points races, including the season-opening Daytona 500. However, his most-thrilling victory was coming back from falling two-laps down to win the spring race at Talladega.
“Awesome”, Elliott said about his amazing run at Talladega. “Awesome. Awesome! Awesome? Awesome.”
The season was not without hardships for Elliott’s family-run team, however, as numerous mechanical issues wound up costing him the championship to Darrell “Jaws” Waltrip. However, Elliott remained upbeat reflecting on what his team was able to accomplish.
“Awesome awesome awesome. AWESOME.”, Elliott said surrounded by his family and team-owner Harry Melling. “Awesome, awesome.”
Elliott also added that he will not let success go to his head, staying the same country boy he’s always been, hungry to win.
“Awesome. The chance to compete at the highest level of stock car racing, it’s really something, and I think we’ll have something for the Chevy boys next year. Er, I mean, awesome.”
