Teammates Elliott, Byron Join ASA STARS At Hickory

NASCAR Cup Series drivers Chase Elliott and William Byron have entered the Tar Heel 250 at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway, scheduled for Thursday night, May 25.

The Hendrick Motorsports teammates are scheduled to take part in their second-straight ASA STARS National Tour race, after finishing second and third at North Wilkesboro Speedway last week.

Elliott owns one of the most decorated Super Late Model careers out of any driver to ever compete in the discipline. He’s a two-time Snowball Derby champion who has also collected victories in the Winchester 400 and the All American 400. He does have a win at Hickory, coming with the PASS South Super Late Model Series as a 13-year-old back in 2009.

Meanwhile, Byron is the defending winner of the Slinger Nationals and has multiple wins at Hickory in both a Super Late Model and a Late Model Stock, one of those coming last year in the Easter Bunny 150. In fact, Byron’s first Super Late Model win came at Hickory in 2015 when he beat Elliott to win a CARS Tour SLM race.
