Dawsonville native Chase Elliott started eighth at Anderson Motor Speedway in Anderson, S.C. on Aug. 8 and crossed the finish line with another win.


The victory was his first win in the competitive ASA SAT series this season.


“This has been a long weekend, but this is the perfect ending, to be here celebrating this win with the team,” Elliott said from Victory Lane at Anderson. 


“We have all been putting in long hours at the shop, getting both cars ready for Pensacola and Anderson, and I just can’t thank these guys enough for working so hard. 


“Pensacola was definitely a learning experience for us, but I think that gave us more drive tonight to come here and run strong.  The car tonight was perfect, Ricky (Turner, crew chief) gave me an awesome car and it shows because here we are with our first ASA SAT win...and those aren’t easy to get. This is a tough series.  I can’t wait to get to Lanier next weekend and see if we can keep this momentum going.  A big thank you to Aaron’s and all of our product sponsors who support us and let us have fun doing what we love to do.”


It was the end of a remarkable weekend for the teenage star. On Friday night the Elliott team was in Pensacola, Fla. for a Super Late Model race, his first.


Elliott qualified the No. 9 car 11th, but finished the race in 18th place. Elliott gained seat time against some of the best drivers in the Southeast.


Elliott raced this past Saturday at his home racetrack, Lanier National Speedway, he finished second in the event.


This weekend the team will travel to Nashville for a race in the CRA series.
