Elliott takes All-Star Race at Bristol; Kyle Busch 2nd

NASCAR’s reigning Most Popular Driver, Chase Elliott, earned his first NASCAR All-Star Race win Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway — holding off reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch in the closing laps. 

Elliott led 60 of the 140 laps en route to the $1 million paycheck. He and his father, Bill Elliott, join the father-son combination of Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. as the only such duo to have won the sport‘s midseason All-Star exhibition. Interestingly, Bill won the race when it was held in Atlanta and Chase‘s victory was in Bristol, Tennessee — those are the only two times the event took place at a track other than Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Up next for the Cup series is Texas Motor Speedway Sunday July 19 at 2:00 p.m. CDT.
