Harvick will pay any truck driver $50K to beat Kyle Busch
|Kyle Busch celebrates truck win Friday night|
Kyle Busch earned his 57th career NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series win in Friday night‘s Strat 200 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Per usual, the Victory Lane trip for “Rowdy" in the Gander Truck Series’ 600th race came with virtual boos from fans on social media, even NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson chimed in with an emoji that indicated Busch is “cherry-picking" the competition.
Friday night‘s race is one of only five races Busch is allowed to compete in during the 2020 Gander Truck Series season, others include Atlanta Motor Speedway (March 14), Homestead-Miami Speedway (March 20), Texas Motor Speedway (March 27) and Kansas Speedway (May 30).
Despite the backlash, Busch had an unlikely competitor come to the rescue and defend his truck efforts – fellow NASCAR Cup Series driver and former rival Kevin Harvick.
I like this so let’s make this fun. I’ll put up a $50,000 bounty for any full time cup driver who races a truck and can beat @KyleBusch in his next 4 races. #gameon https://t.co/BRjLCTxFJQ
