Elliott Eyes Delaware WoO LMS Prize
Still, Elliott says he’s probably been in better position to win the WoO LMS event at DIS in the past.
“No, not really, because when I was out on the road running more often I really think I was a lot sharper than what I probably am now,” said Elliott, who has entered more than 60 WoO LMS events since 2004 (15 appearances in ’08 is his single-season high) and scored his lone A-Main victory on Aug. 24, 2010, at Brewerton (N.Y.) Speedway. “I used to run a lot of the Outlaw races, but my business right now has got me so busy that I just can’t travel like that anymore.”
Indeed, Elliott’s time is increasingly taken up by his business interests. A year-and-a-half ago he opened up a subsidiary to his Advanced Motorsports Speed & Custom, becoming Delaware’s lone Master Distributor for equipment fluids made by the American Refining Group in Bradford, Pa.
“I still love racing,” said Elliott. “I’m still as dedicated as I ever was when I’m at the track and in the car, but it’s just that the work it takes to maintain a car like this to travel to big races and compete at that level – it’s tough, man. I’ve got kids ready to go to college, playing sports, racing, and I’ve got the businesses to take care of. There’s not as much time for racing as I’d like.”
