ELLIOTT CLAIMS $100K BOUNTY ON ROWDY
Updated: May 29, 2020
Chase Elliott edged Kyle Busch by .627 seconds in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway to claim the $100,000 bounty offered by Kevin Harvick and Marcus Lemonis, the CEO Gander RV & Outdoors.
Elliott’s GMS Racing No. 23 iRacing Chevrolet was in front for 47 of the 134 laps on the 1.5-mile track. His third career Gander Trucks win came in his first start in the series since 2017.
The $100,000 prize was set by Harvick and Lemonis, who each placed $50,000 in the pot for an eligible Cup Series driver who could best Busch on in a truck race.
The six-figure payday is to be donated to the COVID-19 relief effort of the winning driver’s choice.
Elliott plans to add part of the bounty to the Chase Elliott Foundation's Desi9n to Drive campaign to support Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) Covid-19 Fund that helps provide needed support, supplies and equipment for their most fragile patients and frontline employees. The Desi9n to Drive campaign kicks off at next week's Atlanta race weekend where the four Hendrick Motorsports drivers will wear racing shoes designed by CHOA patients. The shoes will be auctioned off online to raise funding for CHOA's Covid-19 fund.
