The 2012 season has been a playground for Chase Elliott here at Gresham Motorsports Park (GA). Elliott has won the Beau Slocumb Memorial, the World Crown 300 and another Super Late Model race. Today, Elliott is not in the house and will not get a win here in Georgia. Elliott won the pole for tonight’s ARCA race at Salem Speedway (IN) after being the fastest in final practice. Maybe Elliott will still go to victory lane tonight, just in a different series.
