The first two Stage Wins of Tuesday night’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, have gone to drivers who started 26th-or-worse.
Chase Elliott, who started 26th driving the No. 24 iRacing Chevrolet Silverado, crushed the field by more than two seconds to take a convincing Stage 2 Win.
If Elliott is the highest finishing NASCAR Cup Series regular to finish ahead of Kyle Busch in this race, $100,000 will be donated in his name to COVID-19 relief.
Ben Rhodes finished second in Stage 2, while John Hunter Nemechek, another bounty hunter, finished third.
Matt Crafton ended up fourth and Kyle Busch — the man with a bounty on his head — finished fifth in the Stage.
Brett Moffitt, Zane Smith and Todd Gilliland were sixth through eighth.
Stage 1 winner Ross Chastain ended the Stage in ninth, while Austin Hill rounded out the top-10 finishers in Stage 2.
