Bubba Pollard earned another five-figure check Monday evening in Marne, Michigan. Pollard of Senoia, Georgia inherited the lead after contact with Carson Hocevar on lap 133 and pulled away late to win the $20,000-to-win Money in the Bank 150 at Berlin Raceway.
Pollard’s $20,000 win on Monday night will be placed next to a pair of $25,000 Winter Showdown wins and a $35,000 Summer Showdown win on his resume.
The inaugural Money in the Bank 150 saw many drivers in the field taking as many dips and rises as the stock market, with competing pit strategies and multiple yellows keeping teams guessing. After Johnny Van Doorn and Kyle Busch led sizable portions of the race, a late competition yellow with 18 laps to go saw many teams make pit stops. That put Hocevar, Steven Wallace and Pollard in the top three.
