Monday’s Money in the Bank 150 at Michigan’s Berlin Raceway may only be the second edition of this race, but it’s quickly become one of the biggest races of the year with $20,000 on the line. To get you ready for Monday’s big race, we decided to take an in-depth look in this week’s By the Numbers.
1: Kyle Busch seems to be winning everything lately. In the Super Late Model world he’s won at Kern County and the Snowball Derby last December. Busch was also the first entry for this race, just another time that Kyle has a 1 next to his name.
7: Luck number 7 dawns Brian Campbell where he was the seventh entry for this event at Berlin Raceway (MI). Campbell has to be one of the local favorites with his success at Berlin including last year’s Battle at Berlin 251.
12: The 12 car of Harrison Burton might be one to watch after he took down the Rattler 250 and more recently he won at the tricky Pocono track in the ARCA ranks. Why not pick him at Berlin?
15: Brian Campbell has won countless races at Berlin, but in the touring series he has 15 according to our records.
Touring Series wins breakdown :
ARCA/CRA Super Series – 7
JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour – 2
ASA Challenge – 2
ASA North – 2
ARCA Midwest – 1
Rowdy 251 race – 1
26: Bubba Pollard has three career wins in 10 starts at Berlin. One of those came in last year’s Money in the Bank 150. Pollard also has three runner-up finishes in the Battle at Berlin 251 and four podium runs.
30: The starting field will be set by the following measures: 1-24 from Qualifying, 25-30 top six finishers from 15 Lap Last Chance Race(s).
39: As of this article there are 39 cars on the entry list. Fans will be out in full force to see the Super Late Model stars and the NASCAR stars.
150: The Super Late Models will go 150-laps on Monday night.
2017: The year 2017 was a good one for Preston Peltier who won the Summer Showdown at Evergreen and the Colorado Challenge Cup. He also has won the Easter Bunny 150 in each of the last two seasons and now he takes his game to Michigan and Berlin for the first time.
$20,000: The race pays $20,000 to the winner. Not much more can be said besides that.
An American Kinda Field: Looking down the entry list we see there are several former winners of the All American 400. Bubba Pollard, Brian Campbell, Johnny VanDoorn, and Boris Jurkovic are all former winners. 2017 winner Donnie Wilson was on the entry list, but had to withdraw as he’s not fully recovered from foot surgery.
