Like last year, drivers competed for cash prizes, as follows: a $50,000 bonus for the race winner of any of the three events; win two of the three events and they are awarded an extra $50K, 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 to win the first Triple Truck Challenge event in 2019 at Texas Motor Speedway, driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports. Other winners were Brett Moffitt at Iowa Speedway and Ross Chastain at Gateway.
This year’s Triple Truck Challenge, nicknamed “The Trip,” was originally scheduled to take place April 18 at Richmond Raceway, May 1 at Dover and May 15 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but it was rescheduled because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
