The $100,000 Kyle Busch Bounty is Still On, But Now It’s For Charity

Due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, many wondered if the $50,000 Kyle Busch Bounty that was created by Kevin Harvick and matched by Gander Outdoors’ Marcus Lemonis would still be active once the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series returned time action.

Tuesday, we finally got our answer. Yes.

However, now, instead of the $100,000 going into a NASCAR Cup Series driver’s pocket, the money will now be going to a good cause if a Cup Series regular can defeat Kyle Busch in a Truck Series race.

Marcus Lemonis confirmed that he is still in on the bounty, as well, which means the prize is a $100,000 charity donation.

So, if Chase Elliott (starting 26th), Brennan Poole (starting 32nd) or John Hunter Nemechek (starting 38th) can finish higher than Kyle Busch (starting 16th) in Tuesday’s North Carolina Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, there will be a lot of money raised for COVID-19 relief.
