With over 200 race wins across all three of NASCAR’s racing series, Kyle Busch is one of the most polarizing drivers on the circuit.
After Busch won seven Gander Outdoors and RV Truck Series races in a row, fellow NASCAR Cup Series driver Kevin Harvick issues a challenge that he would give $50,000 to any NASCAR Cup driver who could beat Busch in a Truck Series race. The CEO of Gander Outdoors Marcus Lemonis matched the challenge for a total of $100,000 bounty.
But after the global pandemic sidelined all sporting events for over two months, NASCAR became the first professional sport to return. In light of the pandemic, there was a change in the bounty…instead of going to the driver, the money would go charity.
At the end of the North Carolina Education Lottery 200, Chase Elliott had finally dethroned the king and beat Kyle Busch…and the $100,000 bounty.
Chase Elliott has decided where that $100,000 bounty is going and a portion of it is going to the Samantha and Kyle Busch Bundle of Joy Fund. Recipients of infertility assistance, Samantha and Kyle have created a foundation to aid other couples in bringing home “a bundle of joy” of their own.
