Nineteen drivers attempt infinite glory! The 2024 Big Bud Shootout stands as the hurdle to the big Daytona 500 race, with 19 of 2023's pole-sitters battling triumphantly for the "Big Bud" grand prize. Lucas Racing duo Alex Crapser and John Battista sit on the front row in an attempt to win the $2,000,000!

Big Bud Shootout Results

The Lucas Racing brigade stay atop the heap for less than a lap. Crapser earned his entry with a pole at Watkins Glen, with Battista at the Superspeedway in Alabama. The Race-2-Win duo of Rick Jackson and Tony Pizzaro triumphantly slip-streamed through to lead the initial lap. Between them and Ken Pettit, the team earned eight pole positions in 2023. The lead swapped between Ryan Heuser, Tony Pizzaro and Alan Nesfeder afterwards as the early stages broke through. Heuser earned his entry by winning a league-leading five pole positions, with Nesfeder capturing the hot laps at Kansas and Bristol. The #78 would dominate early, leading from lap 6 to lap 15.

Matthew Dominique and Ryan Heuser battled for supremacy through the lap-20 mark. The #25 earned pole-position at Homestead and Pocono, restitution for a winless 2023 campaign. Bill Werkheiser, Johnny Reed Foley, Scott Jackson and Ziggy Moonglow also enter The Shootout winless the previous year.

Race-2-Win's Rick Jackson and Ken Pettit tag-team back to the front on lap 21. The #44 would maintain his dominant status for three laps before John Battista took back the pack. He would lead 2024's first Halfway Bacon Bonus for $100,000.

A desolating accident on lap 24 takes out two of the contenders! Donald Stewart and Matthew Dominique made contact entering turn-3, elevating the #25 up the banking and into Bink Lucas. Bink annihilated the outside wall head-on, but withdrew from his racecar without any injuries. Dominique also failed to continue with a dismantled spoiler.

A 22-lap shootout to the finish for $2,000,000. John Battista dominated the early go, leading the initial ten before Ryan Heuser made his move. A fitting position for the leading pole-getter. Heuser took the top-spot and maintained it through the seven-to-go mark.

The #39 Wendy's Chevrolet re-passed the #138, swapping the top-spot again with Heuser on top of the heap and teammate Craig Lee to follow. The two were now side-by-side, manufacturing immaculate momentum for Alex Crapser, steamrolling past the Quick-Silver Motorsports duo to capture the lead! The #04 was strong enough to spread out the field and distance himself from a hard-charge from behind. This was Crapser's race to lose.

The immaculate Lucas Racing domination at Superspeedway's continues, with the Pennzoil #04 crossing the line in first for $2,000,000 to go with Battista's Halfway Bacon Bonus money. Crapser also won the pole, earning an extra $100,000 himself with Lucas Racing seemingly taking all the cash available! Congrats to Alex, crew chief Cheato Jacobsen and the entire Lucas Racing organization for an excellent victory!
