    After running his first Winston Cup race at the North Carolina Speedway on February 29, 1976 Awesome Bill has decided to hang up his driving gloves and announced that the 2003 season was his last. Ironic, since his final win was at North Carolina Speedway last month.

    Awesome Bill is a prime example of the success someone can achieve with the right attitude:

    "It's not I. It's we. It's all of us collectively putting this deal together week in and week out, and it's a great relationship."
    - Bill Elliott



    I'm sure gonna miss him. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I just saw on ESPN that he's going to run a limited (10-15 race) schedule in '04.
