Elliott To Attempt Daytona 500

"Awesome Bill" Returns
NEMCO Motorsports announced that former Sprint Cup Champion and Daytona 500 winner Bill Elliott will attempt to qualify the team’s No. 97 Toyota in next Sunday afternoon’s Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. 

The partnership will bring “Front Row Joe” Nemechek and “Million Dollar Bill” Elliott together to kick off the 2012 NASCAR season. "I am really excited to be racing with NEMCO Motorsports and Joe Nemechek, who has been a friend and respected competitor through the years," said Elliott. "This will be a great way to start off the 2012 NASCAR season in Daytona."

"This is a great and fun moment for us at NEMCO Motorsports," said Nemechek. "We believe the talent and skill of Bill will steer the 97 car to a great showing for us, and I am excited to be racing right along with him; this time on the same team."


  1. Does this team have two cars with different manufacturers running the 500? Silly Season has just gotten too silly for me to follow.

    1. Joe drove Toyotas in all series in 2011.
