Chase Elliott won Tuesday’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This is Elliott’s third victory in 13 Gander Trucks starts.
– With the win, Elliott collected the $100,000 “bounty” put forth by Kevin Harvick and Marcus Lemonis for the NASCAR Cup Series regular who could beat Kyle Busch in a Gander Trucks race. The money will be donated to COVID-19 relief efforts.
– Elliott led three times for a total of 47 laps.
“It was a lot of fun. First off thanks to iRacing and Hooters, Chevrolet and GMS for letting me come do this. It was a lot of fun. I really appreciate Charles (Denike, crew chief) and this whole 24 team for what they did in getting this thing prepared. It was really good from the get go with having no laps and the splitter being where it needed to be. It’s really hard to get right so they did a nice job and made it easy on me to move forward and try to get back acclimated, it had been a long time. It doesn’t make up for Sunday, but it was still a really good night. Glad to win and do some good for the relief efforts for this virus. Just appreciate the effort. It was a lot of fun and to be able to come out and outrun Kyle (Busch) with him finishing second. I would much rather him finish second than wreck or something. I feel like I did something right.”
