Chase beats dad Bill in SRX race in bid to support Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway

Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway seemed like a fitting way for Bill and Chase Elliott to spend an evening – some quality bonding time after bandying about the idea of racing against each other.

And son won.

Chase, the defending NASCAR Cup Series champion, is no stranger to the track, which he raced on with some success as a teenager and has championed for inclusion in the Cup Series schedule.

“No. 1 was having a chance to race with dad,” Chase said of his decision to participate Saturday, a day before he traveled to New Hampshire for his regular Cup job.

“Go show support in person, go be there, go race,” he said. “I hope this weekend continues to add to the conversation and the positivity of what a Cup race would do for that city and how much fun it would be.”
