Bill Elliott is the youngest son of Mildred and George Elliott, who was the owner of a lumber company and huge fan of racing, as he had a car which was driven by Don Tilley; he has two older brothers. All of them as children worked in the family business, so Bill became very interested in racing, and from an early age he decided that it would be his job.

Bill’s professional career began in 1976, when he joined the Winston Cup Series driving his father’s car. In his first several seasons, he didn’t have any major success, as his car wasn’t good enough and often broke down. However, he showed enough talent to earn a new car, and from 1977, his career began to take a turn for the better. He signed a contract with Melling Racing, and began to dominate the tracks. In 1983, he won his first race, the Winston Western 500 at Riverside, which increased further his net worth. He continued to race successfully throughout the 1980s, winning several notable races, including the Daytona 500, Winston 500 at Talladega, Southern 500 and the Pepsi Firecracker 400, among others, all of which increased his net worth by a large margin. His best season was in 1988 when he won the Winston Cup Series, now NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Over the course of his career, he raced in 828 races, and had 44 wins, 320 top ten finishes and 55 pole positions. These successes increased his net worth by a large margin.

Bill also participated in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 43 races, winning the Fay’s 150 at Watkins Glen International in 1993, and also had 16 top ten finishes and two pole positions.

During his career he has started several teams on his own, and as collaborations with other drivers, so he drove for Elliott-Hardy Racing, Bill Elliott Racing, Elliott-Marino Motorsports, and most recently Evernham Motorsports.

Thanks to his successful career, Bill was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2014.

If to talk about his personal life, Bill Elliott’s second marriage is to Cindy, since 1992; the couple has three children – two daughters, and a son, William Clyde Elliott II, who is also involved into the sports industry as a race car driver and the winner of the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series. In his spare time, Bill enjoys flying and snow skiing. His current residence is in Blairsville, Georgia.
