Met Bill Elliott today

Bill was at our local Dodge dealer today. My neighbor works there and called me at work to tell me. Took a long lunch and went to see him. Got to talk to him for a few minutes. He was in the Vancouver BC area doing some skiing and stopped by to see the dealer, who is a friend of his. He asked how long I'd been a fan, I said since Riverside! Pretty cool, to me anyway.

there is a reason he is NASCAR's 16 time most popular driver, because he really is a class act...

What a great day, I got his autograph on a t-shirt in the garage at Phoenix in 2000, he was very gracious, glad you were able to talk to him a little, something I did not get to do except say thanks.

Bill is awesome! Great, down-to-earth guy! I have several autographed items from Bill back when he was racing the T-Birds for Coors and Bud. He signed one of the hood scoops from my last T-Bird. I removed the scoop before I sold the car, and packed it away in my collection of stuff!

Just hope that he washed his hand at some recent point right before he shook yours. ;)

i met him at a mcdonalds 7-8 years ago, there was a line that wrapped around the building, and he stayed for almost 2 hours after he was supposed to be there to meet and talk to people. he is as close to richard petty in the way he treats his fans as you will find in sports today.
