Thirty Years Ago today... 'Awesome Bill' from Dawsonville became A Million-Dollar Man 8-)

Bill Elliott...the 1st & ONLY Nascar driver to capture the "Winston Million."
Any driver that could capture 3 victories among the Daytona 500, the Winston 500, the Coca-Cola 600 & the Southern 500 would take home $1 million !

In addition to winning the Winston Million'... Elliott is also known as the fastest man in NASCAR,
having clocked a qualifying speed of 212.809 mph at Talladega Superspeedway in 1987 :o
