Elliott To Compete In Showdown

The Wood Brothers announced that they will compete in The Sprint Showdown at Lowe's Motor Speedway with driver Bill Elliott.

Elliott will now have a shot of making the All-Star race with a good finish in the Showdown or by the winning the fan vote.

“We made the decision to run the race because it gives us track time for the Coca-Cola 600 (to be run the following weekend) and gives our sponsors (Ford and Motorcraft) another marketing opportunity – not to mention it’s a fun event and five minutes from our shop,” said co-owner Len Wood.

Elliott won the race in 1986, but only previous winners in the last 10 years are eligible for the main event.
