The Rowdy Challenge is gathering steam as a second NASCAR Cup driver has accepted the challenge to try and beat Rowdy in one of the four remaining Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series races he will be participating in this season.
On Thursday (February 27) Chase Elliott put his helmet into the ring to driver the number 24 GMS Racing truck at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
On Friday (February 28), another Kyle, Kyle Larson has thrown his helmet into the fray.
Larson will take over the driving duties of the number 24 GMS Racing truck the following week at Homestead-Miami Speedway for a chance to try and beat Rowdy for the $100,000 prize.
With 57 Truck Series wins, Kyle Busch has won the most races of any driver in the Gander Truck Series. After his sixth win in a row at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on February 21, NASCAR Cup Series driver Kevin Harvick issued a challenge to offer a bounty of any $50,000 to any NASCAR Cup Series driver who can beat Kyle Busch in Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series race.
After Harvick issued the challenge, Gander Outdoors CEO Marcus Lemonis matched the bounty saying…
Sounds good to me!!! $100,000 grand boys!!! #gameon https://twitter.com/marcuslemonis/status/1231282831705309184 …
Elliott and Larson both have a pair of wins each in previous Gander Truck Series starts.
