Chase Elliott got it done at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series event, in the process he scored a $100,000 bounty from Kevin Harvick and Marcus Lemonis for charity by defeating Kyle Busch.
Friday, Elliott revealed which charities that he sent the massive bounty to via a Tweet.
A lot of y’all have been asking about the bounty money and what I decided to do with it, so here’s where we landed: @KevinHarvick 50k – Feed the Children Covid 19 response. @marcuslemonis and @CampingWorld 50k – 25k to the Res Cross AND 25k to @KyleBusch Foundation.

Elliott sent $50,000 to the Feed the Children COVID-19 response, he also sent $25,000 to the Red Cross and the final $25,000 was sent to the Kyle and Samantha Busch Bundle of Joy Fund.
While Busch was disappointed that he was unable to win money for his own foundation through his performance in that event, where he finished second to Elliott, he has to take some solace in the fact that Elliott still sent some money to his foundation which helps couples who suffer from infertility get around the financial hurdles of having children.
Following the Tweet from Elliott, Busch responded with thanks to the Sport’s most popular driver:
That’s really a great gesture @chaseelliott as @samanthabusch and I greatly appreciate what kind of help that will bring to the @bundleofjoyfund. Thank you for pushing to make that happen! Well done 🏁 https://t.co/mLMhuxnjsa
