Bill Elliott grew up near Dawsonville, Georgia. According to his autobiography, many generations of Elliotts grew up there. According to his autobiography, William Clyde Elliott was named after two relatives. He is the youngest of three boys. According to his autobiography, his father George created a lumber company and loved racing. He later created a speed shop where Bill’s brothers Ernie (born 1947) and Dan (born 1951). His father was a Ford man and later created a Ford dealership as there were none around.

Bill Elliott has a daughter, Starr, and a son, Chase. Chase Elliott now has a burgeoning racing career.

NASCAR career

Early career

Elliott made his first Winston Cup Series start at Rockingham in 1976, qualifying 34th in a field of 36 cars. Elliott only lasted 32 laps that day before the oil pump failed in his Ford Torino, earning him 0. Elliott toiled for five years in the Winston Cup Series without corporate sponsorship, and along the way showed flashes that he could compete with the established veterans of the sport. In mid-1977, Elliott bought a Mercury Montego from Bobby Allison after his split from Penske Racing to replace the inferior Torino, and the move paid off. He soon earned his first top-10 finish in the Southern 500 (10th), and his first top-5 finish 2 years later in the same race, finishing second to race winner (and Elliott’s boyhood hero) David Pearson.

With Melling Racing

In the fall of 1980, Elliott gained his first major sponsor in the form of 0 from Harry Melling of Melling Racing in the 1980 National 500 at Charlotte. Melling would extend his contract and gave the team enough sponsorship to run a 12 race schedule in 1981. After a 1981 season that consisted of one top-5 and seven top-10 finishes in 13 races, including the team’s first pole in the CRC Chemicals Rebel 500, Melling bought the team from Elliott’s father George on December 1, 1981. In 1983 Elliott earned his first Winston Cup win in the Winston Western 500 at Riverside in the final race of the 1983 season. He gained full sponsorship from Coors in 1984 to the tune of 0,000 and won three races, four poles and finished third in the championship standings.

In 1985, Elliott earned 11 wins and 11 poles out of 28 races and also won the first Winston Million in the Southern 500 at Darlington. This earned him the nickname “Million Dollar Bill”, and “Awesome Bill From Dawsonville.” He won the Daytona 500, the Winston 500 at Talladega (at the time ran at a record average speed 186.288 MPH) and the Southern 500 to earn the Winston Million. This led to him becoming the first NASCAR driver to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Elliott finished second in the championship standings by 101 points, losing the Winston Cup Championship to Darrell Waltrip after a string of poor finishes in the last quarter of the season.

In 1986, Elliott won two races, four poles and finished fourth in the championship standings. He also won the The Winston II, held at Atlanta, the only year the race was run somewhere other than Charlotte. He won six races in 1987, including his second Daytona 500, seven poles, and finished second in the final point standings. In The Winston he tangled with Dale Earnhardt in what has become known as “the Pass In The Grass”. However, Elliott’s most lasting accomplishment that year was setting 2 Nascar qualifying records, which stand to this day. At Daytona, he set the NASCAR speed record with an average speed of 210.364 mph. He broke his own record at Talladega with an average speed of 212.809 mph; the previous record he set in 1986 was 209.383 mph. In both races, he used a Ford Thunderbird which contained an engine built by his brother Ernie. However, at Talladega, Bobby Allison was spun and went airborne into the catch fence, tearing a large section away and injuring several fans. After this incident, NASCAR mandated the use of restrictor plates at Daytona and Talladega. As a result, Elliott’s speed records will likely never be broken. In 1988 Elliott won another six races, six poles, and his only Winston Cup Championship.

Following his championship season, Elliott broke his wrist in a crash during testing at Daytona and required relief by Jody Ridley during several races in the first part of the 1989 season. Elliott won two poles and three races and finished sixth in the championship standings. In 1990, Elliott won one race and two poles and finished fourth in the championship standings. In the 1990 race at Atlanta, Elliott’s rear tire changer Mike Rich was killed when Ricky Rudd lost control of his car, spun, and slammed the crew member between his car and Elliott’s. This resulted in NASCAR restricting the speed of cars on pit road. The year 1991 saw Elliott’s sponsorship change to Coors Light beer and the familiar red on the car was replaced with blue. Elliott won once in the Pepsi 400 and won two poles and finished eleventh in the championship standings during his last season with the Mellings.

With Junior Johnson

1994 car

Elliott left Melling to join Junior Johnson and Associates in 1992. Elliott’s sponsor during his time with Johnson was Budweiser; ironic because his sponsor at Melling Racing was from Bud’s rival brewery Coors. In 1992, Elliott won five races (including four in a row) and three poles, but much like his 1985 season he finished a disappointing second in the championship standings after squandering a large lead in the standings with a late season string of poor finishes. He did win the season finale at his home track in Atlanta, but lost the championship by 10 points to Alan Kulwicki. The difference was that Kulwicki gained the 5 bonus points for leading the most laps in the race. Kulwicki led one more lap (103 vs 102) than Elliott. The 10 point difference was the closest point differential until NASCAR changed to the Chase for the Cup points format 12 years later.

Elliott went winless in 1993 and finished eighth in the standings. He scored just one win the following season in the 1994 Southern 500 while finishing 10th in the championship standings. After his Darlington victory, Elliott announced he would be starting his own team with sponsorship from McDonald’s in 1995.

As an independent driver and at Evernham Motorsports

1997 racecar

After leaving Johnson’s team, Elliott fielded his own Winston Cup race team from 1995 to 2000. Elliott failed to win a race during this time, though he did manage two top ten finishes in the championship standings, with eighth place finishes in both 1995 and 1997. In 1996, Elliott suffered a broken leg during an accident at Talladega and missed seven races that season. Elliott would sell his team to Ray Evernham in 2000 and began driving the #9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge Intrepid in the the following year. The team found success in his first race in the #9 Dodge, as Elliott won the pole for the 2001 Daytona 500 and finished in the top 5, bringing home a 5th place finish, though the race will forever be remembered for the death of fan favorite Dale Earnhardt. Bill finished his first season with Ray Evernham Racing with two poles, five top 5 and nine top 10 finishes, and a win at the season ending Pennzoil Freedom 400 at Homestead from the pole. This was his first win in over seven years. He finished 15th in the final standings. In 2002 he won four poles and went to victory lane twice. His wins included the Pennsylvania 500, and one week later an overwhelmingly dominant victory in that year’s Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He finished 13th in the final standings. His last win, in what became his final full-time season, came in 2003 at Rockingham. A week later Elliott came within a lap of winning his final race as a full-time driver (he would have been the only retiring driver to do so) in the 2003 Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Elliott led 189 of 267 laps and was on his way to victory, but a cut tire on the final lap gave the win to Bobby Labonte. He still finished the race and maintained his ninth-place position in the final points standings, his best finish since an eight-place finish in the 1997 standings. A few weeks later, Elliott announced that he was relinquishing the #9 car to Kasey Kahne and switching to a part-time schedule driving R&D cars for Evernham.

Semi-retirement

In 2004, Elliott drove the #91 Dodge Intrepid for Evernham in three events (along with the Budweiser Shootout) and also drove the #98 Dodge Intrepid in one other event because of sponsorship issues between Coca-Cola (Elliott’s sponsor) and Pepsi (Evernham’s sponsor). Elliott was listed as the owner of the #98 car, but Evernham leased the car to him. Although he only made six starts during his first part-time season, he still managed to have some success which included a ninth-place finish at Indianapolis and second and third-place qualifying efforts at Texas and California respectively.

In 2005, Elliott continued his part-time driving duties which included driving the #39 Coors Dodge Charger(in a paint scheme reminiscent of his 1987 Coors Light Ford) for Chip Ganassi Racing in the Budweiser Shootout and the #91 Evernham Dodge in several events. Although he made three more starts than the previous season, he did not have the same amount of success. He managed to get an eleventh-place finish and a tenth-place qualifying effort at Michigan, along with a ninth-place qualifying effort at Texas. He also competed in select NASCAR Busch Series events for Rusty Wallace and also drove the #6 Unilever Dodge Charger in the Busch Series for Evernham at Memphis, which celebrated the 40th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas.

The Lake District is most well known for mountains, lakes, and associated activities such as hiking, cycling and sailing; what many people don’t know is that there’s also a unique range of golf courses awaiting every level of golfer. Take a look and see what the Eden Valley has to offer golfers enjoying a break in and around the Lake District and Cumbria:

Probably the only golf club to enjoy stunning panoramic views of the North Pennines, the Howgills and the Lake District from the clubhouse and the course, Appleby Golf Club have also just achieved GolfMark accreditation for their Junior and Beginner friendly golf facilities.

A moorland course, it is renowned for its excellent greens and plays as a par 68 for men and par 72 for ladies and is an enjoyable test for beginners through to more experienced golfers. The greens are superbly maintained, playing well throughout the year due to free-draining land. 

Appleby runs several Open Competitions throughout the year for men, ladies, seniors, juniors, and mixed and is the ideal course for societies as you can even book at weekends.

The Lakeland fells and the Eden Valley provide a magnificent backdrop to this par 69 course located high above the lovely town of Penrith. Another moorland course it offers a worthy challenge to any visiting golfer and a clear day will have the added advantage of providing some of the finest views of the mountains of the Northern Lake District.

For those of you who enjoy a bit of competition golf, the club runs mens, ladies, mixed and junior opens throughout the summer and into early autumn.

This is undoubtedly the highest golf course in England and possibly the United Kingdom at 1476 feet above sea level and comes with the warning that the views may distract you from your golf! Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it offers spectacular views of the North Pennines and is currently a 10 hole, par 68, with a further 8 holes under development to make it a full 18 hole par 70, 5800 yds course.

At its present location for 110 years, Kendal Golf Club has seen numerous improvements over the years, including a recent course lengthening to a Par 70 and a refurbished clubhouse.

From its elevated position, overlooking the historic old market town of Kendal, the panoramic views that unfurl are breathtaking. From the east you can see the Westmorland Fells and beyond to the Yorkshire Dales, whilst viewing from north to west the Lakeland mountains and valleys open up and to the south, Morecambe Bay and the Lancashire Plains unfold.

The course has an excellent reputation for the standard of its greens and fairways and the well drained land ensures it is playable through winter too. The course provides challenges for the most proficient and higher handicap player.

is ideally situated for Golf breaks in Cumbria and golfers who wish to explore all that the Eden Valley and Cumbria has to offer in terms of courses. Closest to Appleby but within easy drives of Penrtih, Kendal and Alston, the hotel is an ideal base from which to enjoy a short golf break or a longer county golf tour.

If you haven’t already taken advantage of the 19th hole, the bar is fully stocked with a fine selection of wines and whiskies and in the colder months there are roaring log fires for you to warm around whilst recalling the triumphs of your round.

The leisure club is ideal for a little rest and relaxation between the bouts of physical exertion – particularly Kendal’s climb up the 1st! And of course the award-winning restaurant provides the ideal start and end to your day with a great selection of the region’s finest produce.

Flexible in its accommodation offer, the Manor is well placed to offer hospitality to individuals, couples and groups looking for a golfing break in some of the best countryside in the UK. There’s even a putting green to help you sharpen up before the day’s play!

Susan Boyle is one of the undisputed superstars of the international music scene.

Visit her new online webshop and find everything about Susan Boyle CD on one site!

From her unorthodox audition at the 2009 edition of “Britain’s Got Talent”, to global pop icon, Susan Boyle’s overnight rise to stardom is truly an extraordinary story.

How did an otherwise unremarkable and plain middle-aged woman go from being laughed at in front of the most influential music producers in the UK, to being the world’s best selling artist of 2009, with over 9 million albums sold in a mere 6 weeks?

The secret is Susan Boyle’s amazing voice, a voice so astoundingly good that it ranks right up there with the likes of Elaine Paige and other sacred beasts of the genre. And if you think that’s a bold claim, you need to hear it for yourself.

Though it is best to never judge a book by its cover, her homely appearance and erratic behaviour made it apparently extremely hard for even the judges maintain this mind, when the dishevelled looking singer walked onto the stage. It was even reported by “The Washington Post” that the snickering audience (and obviously unimpressed judges) was “waiting for her to squawk like a duck”

But she stunned them all within seconds of starting to sing “I dreamed a dream”, from the musical “Les Mis?rables”. The triumphant twist of events is a heart-warming tale of the unlikely (and improbable) underdog winning against all odds.

Susan Boyle is definitely not your typical star. The Blackburn, West Lothian native is shy, of few words, and very direct. She doesn’t give many interviews, and her unpredictability makes any interview a daunting task for even the most experienced hosts.

With her pungent and tough hitting sense of humour, Susan Boyle is steadily winning the hearts of fans around the world. Her humility and uncomplicated demeanour have made her the “anti-diva” superstar, who’s only splurges have been a couple of dresses and a grand piano. Fans and critics alike adore her for her humourous wit and engaging voice, and she remains quite significantly the kind of person you’d expect to come across in your next door neighbout.

While it has taken Susan Boyle a good while to get used to the sudden surge in popularity, which continues to soar, we suspect this is only the beginning of her success which will last many, many years more, thanks to her powerful and expressive voice.

For this really is Susan Boyle’s tale. The fearlessness to dream about some thing other than the lot life has handed you. The chance to escape. The pivotal role of music as a conduit to go to one more place, occasionally lodged at the outer recesses of your imagination, and to enable that new spot to blossom. Yes, this really is Susan Boyle’s tale. It’s why it connected with so a number of unsuspecting individuals across the world. In another nutshell? If she can dare to dream, so can you.

Inspirational and breathtaking, “I Dreamed a Dream” is the highly anticipated album from a global phenomenon whose dream has become reality.

Susan Boyle captured the hearts of millions and became a worldwide YouTube phenomenon with over 300 million hits. An inspiration for those who have a dream, the talented Susan Boyle presents her stunning debut album. Susan surprised the globe with her powerful, heart stopping voice when she walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage. Now with an attractive and diverse album she will, once once more, defy preconceptions. I Dreamed a Dream, the album, crafted by globe acclaimed producer Steve Mac, demonstrates Susan Boyle’s extensive musical capability. Featuring her signature songs, `I Dreamed a Dream’ & `Cry me a River’ the album also includes a haunting rendition of Rolling Stones “Wild Horses”, Madonna’s `You’ll See, The Monkees `Daydream Believer’ and “Who I Was Born To Be” an original recording written specially for Susan. Susan enthused; “It was my greatest ambition to release an album and I have finally achieved it. This amazing journey has helped me find my own identity and fulfill my wish. There is happiness out there for everyone who dares to dream.”

are increasing in numbers these days.  Sometime in the late 20th century, there were only a few Filipinos who are residing in Canada. But due to the country’s low population growth, the Canadian government has opened their country for immigrants. Thus, there are a lot of individuals from all over the world have been migrating since then. The Filipinos are not left behind. They are also one of those many who are queuing up in the embassy to get an immigrant visa or working visa.

The population has increased as well when there are now natural born . These ladies are either daughters of both Filipino parents or one of their parents is a Filipino. Whether these women are born in Canada or in the Philippines, still they observed the Filipino culture especially in dating.

The Filipino Culture

Filipinos in general have a very rich and unique culture that they practice strictly. You can see that in how they deal with their family, how they express their faith in their religion, and how they social involve themselves in their community. As you would notice, Filipinos are very religious. Being the only Asian country that is dominated by Christian religion, the people are very active in practicing their religious culture.

Socially, you would also observe that these people are very friendly and clubbish. Wherever they are, there is always a Filipino community that these people from the Philippines have organized. For example in Canada, the Filipino communities are also growing. You would know that in every provinces in Canada, this Filipino community exist. Names of organizations like “the Filipino Social Workers Association of British Columbia”, FILCANSA, “The Filipino Association In British Columbia”, “Filipino-Canadian Association of Fort McMurray, North York Pinoy Athletic Association, Culture Philippines of Ontario, Filipino Canadian Seventh-day Adventist Church, Foklorico Filipino Canada, and many others are familiar. These Filipino people look forward to the gathering of these organizations. They also wholeheartedly support the cause of the organization.

As a family, you can also see that they are very closely knitted. Women are treated like china. They are considered as delicate. You can hear stories like how fathers or brothers are being protective with their female members in the family. Whenever a man is courting a Filipina woman, the woman’s male siblings and her father would never fail to investigate you in your first visit. The opinion of her parents and siblings matter to her as well. She would solicit their opinions regarding her suitor. If you would not get the approval of her parents, the tendency is she would also turn you down. Filipinas hate to displease her parents. So, if you are serious with your Filipina girlfriend, you also need to seek first the blessing of her parents. You really have to take time to befriend them and pave your way to gain their trust. This is very true regardless whether the are natural born citizens already or they are just staying in the country to earn a living.
