Elliott Henderson Back to Victory Lane

After losing 242 consecutive Cup Series races, Elliott Henderson won at Texas. After 333 laps of hard racing, when it was all said and done, Elliott won by 1.32 seconds, and led 94 of the laps. He was awarded ten bonus points for leading the most laps, along with leading one lap. The only thing is, I think so many people were looking at Elliott, they didn’t realize who was second. It was teammate Duffman228. You didn’t have to look back to far for the other two HR drivers either. KingLemmie finished twelfth and Danatyam was 18th. Definitely one of the best races for the AAA team this season.

“It was a really good race for us.” Elliott says, “I also didn’t realize that was Duffman, until I passed him. After that, I honestly didn’t care who it was. I knew I was going to the front, and that was about it.”

Just two weeks after the big Texas win, Elliott went to Talladega with high hopes. He would not be disappointed…

Elliott would take the lead from Kevin Minnelli with just 21 laps to go, and not look back. He went on to win by a margin of over 3 seconds! That is now a new record in itself. Just like Texas, Elliott led the most laps, and maximum points to try to gain on Alan Snyder. Sadly that would not happen. Elliott would go on to finish 25th at Richmond and 45th at Darlington.

“Yeah, we have had a rough last two weeks…” Says Elliott, “…but I think we can really turn it around tonight at Charlotte. HR has always performed well here, and I don’t think it will be any different this season. Heck, maybe we can get Lemmie or Duff in victory lane. Myself and Dan already have one, so we can wait…”

Elliott, along with the other HR drivers go to Charlotte with high hopes.
