CONCORD, N.C. -- Chase Elliott held off Kyle Busch to claim the bounty in NASCAR Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway Tuesday night.

With the victory, Elliott snapped Busch's seven-race win streak to claim the $100,000 bounty put together by Kevin Harvick and Marcus Lemonis, the CEO of Gander RV & Outdoors.

Harvick originally made a pledge that he would give $50,000 to anyone who could beat Busch. Lemonis matched that pledge with another $50,000.

The donation will be made to a COVID-19 charity of Elliott's choice.

He said it was satisfactory to defeat Busch, even though it wasn't in a Cup Series race. The victory comes after Busch clipped Elliott last week at Darlington, causing Elliott's night to end early.

"He is good at anything he does," Elliott said. "I was glad I had a chance to race him for the win. For us to go head-to-head for the win, and it felt good to come out on top. It doesn't make up for Sunday, but it was fun."

Elliott finished third in Sunday's Charlotte 600 after he opted to pit as overtime. He had the lead before the call was made. 

While the past two races have been tough for Elliott, he is thrilled to be giving back to the community.

“It was a lot of fun,” Elliott said. “It’d been a long time. It doesn’t make up for Sunday but it was still a really good night. I’m glad to win and do some good for the relief efforts for this virus.”
