Finalists Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick and Denny HamlinÂ joined FOX Businessâ Stuart VarneyÂ on Tuesday to discuss the high-stakes competition.
âIt will not be easy,â Hamlin said. âBecause [Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick] are the three best competitors. They were here last year. They’ve proven that they are the upper echelon of NASCAR drivers.â
Varney asked the finalists the burning question, âwhy should I watch cars going round and round and round in a circle at the 180 miles an hour?â
The answer: Thereâs a lot of money on the table.
âThere’s big strategy involved with the sport,â Busch said. âAnd of course, there’s a lot of money that takes place as well, too. There’s a lot of money up for grabs â being able to go out there win the race, win the championship.â
Martin Truex said the winner of the series will be graciously rewarded by NASCAR.
âTo win the championship, itâs a big payday,â Truex said. âItâs got to be worth a few million.â
Kevin Harvick said between winning and losing, âitâs got to be a $2 to $3 million swing.â
âItâs a big industry,â Busch added.
