Money in the Bank 150 features big payday and star-studded entry list

Kevtron Media

Some of the best Stock Car drivers in the world have landed in South Michigan on Monday to compete for $20,000 in the Money in the Bank 150 at Berlin Raceway.

It may just be the second time this race has been held, but it has immediately established itself as a major akin to the Snowball Derby, Winter Showdown, All-American 400, Oxford 250 and the Winchester 400.

The reason for the fanfare is a one-day show, six-tire race that pays equal to the Snowball Derby. It’s a win for teams that don’t want to spend thousands of dollars over the course of a weekend or purchase 10-plus tires during the same time span.

And the entry list is absolutely stacked because of it.

The entry list is headlined by 2015 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch. The current Cup Series championship leader has won his two most-recent Super Late Model starts and collected $50,000 after winning the Snowball Derby and Winter Showdown.

Now, he’s looking to add $20,000 more on Monday night.

Bubba Pollard is on a roll, too. The winningest Super Late Model driver of this generation is looking to do something truly remarkable in winning three races over four days with a combined value of $41,000. He dominated both the Masters of the Pros at Birch Run on Friday night at the Southern Super Series-CARS Tour Border War 150.

“I just love racing,” Pollard said after winning the Border War on Saturday night. “We had a month off to prepare all the race cars. As soon as the schedule came out I said that’s something I want to do. I like doing things that are different. It’d be awesome to win all three, just to win two of them is good but I really want that one on Monday.”

Pollard has three career victories in 10 starts at Berlin. One of those came in last year’s Money in the Bank. Pollard also has an additional three runner-ups in the Battle at Berlin 251 and four overall podiums.

Busch isn’t the only NASCAR notable on the list with two-time NASCAR Truck Series champion Matt Crafton making the trip north. Reigning K&N East champion Harrison Burton will also be amongst the field.

In addition to Busch, a two-time Snowball Derby winner and the inaugural Money in the Bank 150 winner, there are some other big money winners in the field too.

Brian Campbell, Johnny VanDoorn, and Boris Jurkovic are all former All-American 400 winners. Reigning Snowball Derby polesitter and Summer Showdown winner Preston Peltier is also in attendance.

The race can be watched live on Speed51.com’s PPV service for $19.99.
