Pollard’s late-race pass secured the win, showcasing his skill and determination. The thrilling battle on the Michigan track kept fans on the edge of their seats, and Pollard emerged as the victor, leaving Chase Elliott in his wake.

“[We] just had to get the stagger right,” Pollard said. “We missed it that first run, but that‘s a product of the tires. If you‘re off a quarter of an inch, it‘s make or break, but this is big boy racing, and you need to put the big boy pants on. Once we got the tires right, we were fine.”

Berlin Raceway, known for its marquee events, attracts a talented contingent of regulars. Pollard faced tough competition, including drivers like Rowe, who consistently showed up to compete. Each race at Berlin is a battle, and Pollard’s victories are hard-fought.

“These guys around here are good, but we have good race cars,” Bubba Pollard said. “Terry Senneker and everyone who works at his shop makes it possible to give us a fast race car. When we pick up the phone to call them, they are there for us, so I can‘t thank those guys enough. It takes a group effort.”

Bubba Pollard acknowledges that it’s not just about individual talent. He credits the collaboration with Senneker and his team for providing a fast race car. When they pick up the phone, Senneker and his crew are there for Pollard, emphasizing the importance of teamwork in racing.

Last year’s Money in the Bank 150 winner, Jones, faced tough competition in his defense. Ultimately, he secured a third-place finish. Gavan Boschele and Derek Griffith completed the top five, showcasing the depth of talent at Berlin Raceway.
