Elliott Wins Montgomery’s Show Me The Money #5
Chase Elliott and his Aaron’s Dream Machine crew overcame the crash of their hauler en route to the track and a late-race spin to win the fifth running of the Show Me The Money series at Montgomery Motor Speedway. The weekend woes began when the team hauler, driven by Jacky Wade, went through the steel wire barrier and off of Interstate 85 just inside the Alabama state line during rainy, foggy weather. Wade was unhurt and no other vehicles were involved, but I-85 was closed down to one lane for the next five and a half hours while the transporter was pulled from the median. The hauler was towed to the track, and the team had to use a drill to open the hydraulic door but eventually unloaded the race car and got about five laps in the first practice of the day and all of the second practice. Elliott qualified on the pole and drew a three for the invert, putting Kyle Benjamin on the pole with Bubba Pollard alongside.
