Big names highlight the first released list of entries for the second edition of the Money in the Bank 150 at Berlin Raceway (MI). After a successful inaugural event in 2017, the one-day Super Late Model event returns in 2018 and is already attracting some of the biggest names in racing.
Currently, 26 drivers have pre-entered for the race, which will be held on June 11 at the 0.4375-mile oval located in Marne, MI. The race will pay $20,000-to-win once again this season, making it one of the richest one-day shows in asphalt Late Model racing.
2015 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Busch was the first driver to file his entry for the race. He’ll be competing in the Money in the Bank 150 for a second straight year after a seventh-place finish in 2017.
Two-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Matt Crafton will also be strapping in behind the wheel of a Super Late Model to chase the top prize at Berlin.
Dirt Modified standout and NCWTS driver Stewart Friesen has also filed an entry for the race.
Busch, Crafton and Friesen will be joined by many of the top Super Late Model drivers in America, including defending Money in the Bank winner Bubba Pollard. One year ago, the driver from Senoia, GA pocketed $20,000 after making a late-race pass for the lead.
2018 Rattler 250 winner Harrison Burton, former Southern Super Series champion Donnie Wilson, 22-time ARCA/CRA Super Series winner Brian Campbell and three-time ARCA/CRA Super Series champion Johnny VanDoorn are also entered for the event.
These drivers will be joined by a strong contingent of local racers who will be looking to defend their home turf and score the biggest victory of their racing careers.
The full entry list, as of 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, can be seen below.
The second running of the Money in the Bank will be a 150-lap, six-tire race. Teams that register online by May 25 will have the opportunity to save money on their tire bill as four tires are included at a heavily discounted rate with each early entry fee.
