With the win on the Daytona International Speedway Road Course, Sheldon Creed took home the first $50,000 bonus of the 2020 edition of the Triple Truck Challenge.
On Friday evening at Dover International Speedway, Creed’s GMS Racing teammate Zane Smith was victorious and took home the second $50,000 bonus.
The third and final race of the challenge will be at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway on August 30 (12 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
Creed and Smith will each be looking to triple their bonus as a win this weekend would net one of them $150,00 total through the two wins.
This year’s rules will copy last season. The drivers will compete for cash prizes:
- $50,000 bonus for the race winner of any of the three events
- If a driver wins two of the three events, they’re awarded an extra $50,000, totaling $150,000
- Win all three events and take home an additional $300,000 for a total of $500,000 in prize money.
Greg Biffle came out of retirement in 2019 to win the first Triple Truck Challenge event at Texas Motor Speedway for Kyle Busch Motorsports. Brett Moffitt won at Iowa Speedway and Ross Chastain won at Gateway.
“The Trip” was originally supposed to take place beginning April 18 at Richmond Raceway and continuing into May at Dover and Charlotte Motor Speedway, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic it was rescheduled.
