A challenger for Kevin Harvick’s bounty proposal has emerged.
Chase Elliott announced on Twitter Thursday (Feb. 27) he will compete at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.
He’ll drive for GMS Racing and have sponsorship from Hooters.
Elliott is the first full-time Cup Series driver to take on the challenge Harvick proposed Saturday.

Harvick is offering $50,000 to any full-time Cup driver that can win over Kyle Busch in his next four events. Marcus Lemonis matched the amount, bringing the bounty total to $100,000.
Elliott’s car number for the event is yet to be announced, but it’s likely it will be No. 24 since that is GMS’ part-time truck number in 2020.
Kyle Larson also tweeted his intent to take part in the challenge. He, too will drive for GMS at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
