Chase Elliott will be honoring father Bill Elliott with a throwback paint scheme in the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in September.
Elliott will race a scheme honoring Bill Elliott’s 1976 premier series debut at Rockingham Speedway where he finished 33rd.
Elliott spoke about the announcement this week.
“I’m very lucky to have a dad that I can share something like this with. Just his history in racing and his success over the years and how long he raced allows us to do stuff like this,” Elliott said in a video.
