FORT WORTH, Texas – Chase Elliott earned his first career NASCAR Nationwide Series victory, using a strong pass of Kevin Harvick and pulling away Friday night at Texas Motor Speedway.

The 18-year-old won in his sixth career start and became the fourth driver in Nationwide history to earn his first series victory at the Texas track.

The victory continues the youth initiative in NASCAR’s second-tier series, as first-time winners have taken consecutive races for the first time since 2008. Two weeks ago, 21-year-old Kyle Larson scored his first career victory in Fontana, Calif.

Elliott, son of two-time Daytona 500 winner Bill Elliott, was second behind Harvick on the final restart with 23 laps to go in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300. Elliott took control with an outside pass.

Kyle Busch finished second, Larson was third and Harvick was fourth. Dale Earnhardt Jr. placed fifth.

Derrike Cope of Spanaway was 38th of 40.

Schumacher is said to make progress

GRENOBLE, France – Michael Schumacher is showing “moments of consciousness and awakening,” more than three months after suffering serious head injuries in a skiing accident, the retired Formula One superstar’s manager said.

Schumacher, 45, fell while skiing in France on Dec. 29 and hit the right side of his head on a rock, cracking his helmet. Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain, but some were left because they were too deeply embedded.

Schumacher’s condition stabilized after he was placed in a drug-induced coma. In late January, doctors began the process of withdrawing sedatives.

“Michael is making progress on his way,” Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a statement Friday.
