Last year, Johnny VanDoorn won the Battle at Berlin 251 to start his chase for the JEGS/CRA $100,000 Super Late Model Triple Crown. He would go on to win the Redbud 300, but come up short at the Winchester 400 to claim the six-figure bonus.
Now Daniel Hemric has the Redbud 300 under his belt, and he will be looking for his second win of the Triple Crown on Saturday, July 19th at Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan hoping to make it a $20,000 payday.
