The Next NASCAR Cup Driver Who Can Beat Kyle Busch In A Truck Race Will Get $100,000 Prize
The racing world has put a bounty on Kyle Busch’s head after his seventh-straight victory in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series and 57th overall.
Fellow NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick tweeted out that he’d pay $50,000 to any full-time NASCAR Cup driver who could beat Busch in a truck race. And Gander Outdoors CEO Marcus Lemonis, took to Twitter saying he’d double it making the grand prize $100,000.
We know what you’re thinking. And yes, NASCAR rules only allow full-time Cup drivers like Busch to compete in up to five truck events per season. That means there are only four left where someone can claim the jackpot.
Busch got on Twitter himself to ask what he gets if no one beats him, however, his wife, Samantha, came up with the idea to give the money to their charity: Busch’s Bundle of Joy Fund. Both Harvick and Lemonis agreed to the proposition. The next coming up chance to snag the money is at Atlanta Motor Speedway on March 14.
The catch to all this is that Busch made it clear: if he thinks someone wrecks him out of a race, it shouldn’t count.
