Mason Massey To Drive For Bill Elliott

DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. — Mason Massey will drive the No. 9 asphalt late model for Bill Elliott Racing this season.

Massey’s car will be sponsored by Praelia Pharmaceuticals and its new product, Jeff Foxworthy’s Full Force Energy Shot which will be on store shelves in March.

“Mason is a good kid,” said Bill Elliott, team owner and former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion. “I’ve watched him race in Bandoleros and Legends and now in Late Models. He does a good job and we are looking forward to working with him at Bill Elliott Racing and helping him to progress on to the next level of his career.”

Massey will compete in a 20-race schedule under the direction of crew chief Ricky Turner.

Massey will take over the seat vacated by Elliott’s son Chase who has been signed to a multi-year contract with Hendrick Motorsports.

“I am really excited and honored to be racing for Bill (Elliott Racing),” said Massey. “It is not often that you get to race for a former NASCAR Champion with such a huge part of history in the sport. He is a great guy and I really appreciate him thinking of me when Chase (Elliott) signed with Hendrick Motorsports. Their late model program is by far one of the strongest in the country. It is definitely going to be a huge challenge moving up from the Legend cars, but a challenge that I have prayed for.”
