FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Bill Elliott rarely got rattled during his three-plus decades racing at NASCAR's highest level. He worked hard, didn't worry about what was going on around him, and did his talking on the track.
He was ''Awesome Bill From Dawonsville'' and fans idolized the way Elliott conducted himself both inside the car and out.
Now, 11 years after his final full-time season, there's another Elliott turning heads for the very same reasons.
Chase Elliott scored his first career Nationwide Series victory on Friday night at Texas Motor Speedway, winning in just his sixth start at NASCAR's junior varsity level.
He's the second-youngest winner in series history, clocking in at roughly four months older than record-holder Joey Logano, who was 18 years and 21 months when he won in 2008.
