Saddened to hear the passing of Tony Elliott this morning.
From Speedsport News:
WALHALLA, S.C. – Tony Elliott, a former AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series champion, was one of four people killed in a small place crash Friday near the Georgia and South Carolina border at Lake Hartwell.
Elliott’s brother-in-law confirmed to WNDU in South Bend, Ind., that Elliott was one of the four people aboard the plane.
Elliott was well known in the dirt track world as a skilled driver. He won races in all three USAC National divisions and captured the AMSOIL USAC National Sprint Car Series championship in 1998 and 2000.
Also reportedly killed in the crash was Warsaw (Ind.) Councilman Charlie Smith, his son Scott and former Tippecanoe Valley (Ind.) football coach Scott Bibler. They were reportedly on their way to Clemson, S.C., to watch the Clemson Tigers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish football game. Replies:
