NASCAR career

Elliott made his first Winston Cup start at Rockingham in 1976. In 1980, Elliott first gained financial support from Harry Melling of Melling Racing in the 1980 National 500 in Charlotte, and earned his first Winston Cup win at Riverside in November, 1983.

In 1985, Elliott earned 11 wins and 11 poles and also won the first Winston Million in the Southern 500 at Darlington. This earned him the nicknames "Wild Bill," "Million Dollar Bill," and "Awesome Bill From Dawsonville." This also led to him becoming the first NASCAR driver to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. In 1987 Bill also became the fastest man to ever turn the wheel of a stock car after turning a lap at Talladega of 212.809 mph. Despite his success during that time, Elliott did not win the Winston Cup Championship until 1988. He left the Melling Racing team after the 1991 season and began driving the #11 Budweiser Ford Thunderbird for the legendary Junior Johnson in 1992. For that season, Elliott finished second in the points standings and lost the Winston Cup Championship to Alan Kulwicki by a mere 10 points. 1985 (MCMLXXXV) was a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

After leaving Johnson's team, Elliott fielded his own Winston Cup race team from 1995 to 2000. Unfortunately, he was never as successful as he was with his previous teams and was even winless during that time. Elliott sold his team to Ray Evernham in 2000 and began driving the #9 Dodge Dealers / UAW Dodge Intrepid the following year. In his first qualifying effort while driving the #9 Dodge, Elliott won the pole for the 2001 Daytona 500. Later in the season, he won the Pennzoil Freedom 400 at Homestead from the pole (with then-teammate Casey Atwood starting second and finishing third), which was his first win since the Mountain Dew Southern 500 in 1994. From 2002 to 2003, he went on to win races at Pocono, Indianapolis, and Rockingham, along with four more pole positions. At the 2003 Ford 400 at Homestead, Elliott led 189 of 267 laps and was well on his way to victory, but a cut tire on the final lap gave the win to Bobby Labonte. Luckily, he still finished the race and kept his ninth-place position in the final points standings. A few weeks later, Elliott announced that he was relinquishing the #9 car to Kasey Kahne and switching to a part-time schedule driving R&D cars for Evernham.

In 2004, Elliott drove the #91 Dodge Intrepid for Evernham in three events (along with the Budweiser Shootout) and also drove the #98 Dodge Intrepid in three other events because of sponsorship issues between Coca-Cola (Elliott's sponsor) and Pepsi (Evernham's sponsor). Elliott was listed as the owner of the #98 car, but Evernham leased the car to him. Although he only made six starts during his first part-time season, he still managed to have some success which included a ninth-place finish at Indianapolis and second and third-place qualifying efforts at Texas and California respectively.

In 2005, Elliott continued his part-time driving duties which included driving the #39 Coors Dodge Charger for Chip Ganassi Racing in the Budweiser Shootout and the #91 Evernham Dodge in several events. Although he made three more starts than the previous season, he did not have the same amount of success. He managed to get an eleventh-place finish and a tenth-place qualifying effort at Michigan, along with a ninth-place qualifying effort at Texas. He also competed in select NASCAR Busch Series events for Rusty Wallace and also drove the #6 Unilever Dodge for Evernham at Memphis, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas.

For the 2006 season, the 2005 owners' points for the #91 team went to the new #10 Evernham team and driver Scott Riggs. On January 4, 2006, Elliott announced that he would pilot the #36 Chevrolet Monte Carlo for MB2 Motorsports in the 2006 Daytona Speedweeks events. This included the Budweiser Shootout, the Gatorade Duel, and the Daytona 500, which Elliott had not competed in since 2003. On March 17, 2006, it was announced that Elliott will drive the #00 Burger King Chevrolet, ironic because of his many years driving for McDonald's, for Michael Waltrip Racing in five NEXTEL Cup events which include Chicagoland, New Hampshire, Indianapolis, California, and Homestead. Team Red Bull later announced that Elliott will drive the #83 Dodge for the team for three races this season as the team prepares for a full-time entry into Cup racing with Toyota in 2007. He will attempt to qualify for the races at Charlotte and Atlanta in October and Texas in November. On August 8, 2006, Evernham Motorsports announced that Elliott would return to the organization for the Watkins Glen race piloting the #19 Dodge previously driven by Jeremy Mayfield. The team fell out of the top-35 in owners' points after Indianapolis, leading to the firing of Mayfield, and Evernham assumed that Elliott would guarantee a starting spot in the field by being a past champion. However, since the driver switch was made past the entry deadline, NASCAR said that Elliott was not eligible for the past champions provisional. For the race at Kansas, Elliott teamed up with R&J Racing to pilot the #37 Dodge. This was special for Elliott as the engine was one from his brother, Ernie Elliott, and the Melling Auto Parts paint scheme resembled the paint scheme from Elliott's car in 1982. Elliott finished a season-high 16th at the Banquet 400 at Kansas, but did not qualify for the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte two weeks later. Elliott was slated to the Team Red Bull entry at Atlanta and Texas, but A. J. Allmendinger drove the car instead (though he did not qualify for either race). Elliott instead drove the #37 Dodge at Atlanta, marking the 30th Anniversary of Elliott driving at his hometown track.

Throughout his career, Elliott has garnered 44 wins in the Cup series, including 2 victories in the Daytona 500, a record 4 consecutive wins at Michigan International Speedway in 1985-86, as well as one Busch Series win at Watkins Glen. Elliott is the current holder of the track qualifying record at Texas. Elliott also holds the track record at both Talladega and Daytona, neither of which is likely to be broken due to the current use of restrictor plates at both tracks. Also, he has won NASCAR's Most Popular Driver Award a record 16 times, which he last won in 2002.

In 1990, Konami released the first officially-licensed NASCAR game, Bill Elliott's NASCAR Challenge for MS-DOS. The game featured four official NASCAR tracks and it also made Elliott the first NASCAR driver to be featured in a video game. The game was released for the NES and Amiga in 1991, and Bill Elliott's NASCAR Fast Tracks was released for the Game Boy at the same time. Elliott continued to appear in most NASCAR games until the release of EA Sports' NASCAR 2005: Chase for the Cup in 2004 when he began his semi-retirement. The following year, he was seen in several screenshots and videos for EA Sports' NASCAR 06: Total Team Control driving the #91 Stanley Tools Dodge. However, he was removed from the game before its release and the #91 was removed from the Custom Car Garage feature for NEXTEL Cup. Ironically, Elliott's then-teammate Jeremy Mayfield was also absent from NASCAR 2005 (though he reappeared in NASCAR 06) and an official explanation was never given for Elliott's absence in 2006. Jeremy Mayfield was originally going to be the cover of Nascar 2005: Chase for the Cup, but when that was given to Kevin Harvick, he refused to be in the game. Unlike Elliott in NASCAR 06, Mayfield had not been seen in any screenshots or videos for NASCAR 2005. However, Kasey Kahne was featured in the #9 Evernham Dodge, and Mayfield and the #19 Evernham Dodge had been featured in previous NASCAR games.

New Georgia Encyclopedia: Bill Elliott (b. 1955) (675 words)
Bill Elliott was born on October 8, 1955, in Dawsonville.
Elliott's reputation grew that year when he received a $1 million bonus (and the additional title of "Million Dollar Bill") for winning the Daytona 500, the Winston 500, and the Southern 500.
Elliott seemed destined to ride out his career in mediocre equipment near the rear of the pack.
Bill Elliott - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (919 words)
Bill Elliott (Born October 8, 1955 in Dawsonville, Georgia) is a driver in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup series.
Elliott fielded his own Winston Cup race team from 1995 until 2000, but was never as successful as he was with Melling and the Junior Johnson owned team, where he finished second in the 1992 points standings and lost the Winston Cup Championship to Alan Kulwicki by a mere 10 points.
Elliott also holds the track record at both Talladega and Daytona, neither of which is likely to be broken due to the current use of restrictor plates at both tracks.
