Bill Elliot is a stock race car driver that won the Winston Cup Series, Daytona 500, Brickyard 400 and Southern 500. He was named as one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers and was inducted into both the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America. He was voted NASCAR’s most popular driver a record 16 times. Bill Elliot has the racing credentials of a legend in his field and it was on October 23, 2004 that he raced at the Memphis Motorsports Park in the Sam’s Town “He Dared To Rock” 250 race in a specially-designed Dodge race car that bore another legend’s image on the hood: Elvis Presley. But the #9 car that Bill Elliot drove was not the only racing gear to sport Elvis’ image; Bill also wore a matching racing suit that featured the same Elvis image on the back along with the additional sponsors of Lucas Oil, Sam’s Town, Dodge, Boyd Gaming and Coca-Cola, whose respective patches appear on the front of the suit. Offered is that very racing suit with its stylish green over black and the tag line “He Dared to Rock” down the side legs with embroidered Elvis Presley signatures on each sleeve. The heavy lined, quilted racing suit is by Sparco and has a zipper front closure with a Velcro closure at collar and belt and two side front pockets. The suit has been signed by Bill Elliot and this amazing, official race suit comes with an original motor equipment bag from Sparco (“Behind Your Passion”) that has a zip pocket on front and a zip top closure with the same logo printing on both sides of bag. The bag measures 13 1/2 by 17 1/2 by 4 inches (34.29 x 44.45 x 10.16 cm) and the racing suit measures approximately 63 inches (160.02 cm) in length. This special racing suit, representing the converging of two legends for the charitable cause of St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
