Carson Kvapil had dominated the 2020 Carolina Pro Late Model Season by winning 6 out of 7 races leading into the season final race. The CPLMS decided to put a $500 bounty on Carson Kvapil. After Kvapil qualified on the pole he took the chance to win the $500 himself and also bet the CPLMS Promoter Keith Graham to grow a mullet just like his and start in the rear.


100 laps of tough racing, Kvapil worked his way to the front on more than one occasion even having to change two tires. In the end, Kvapil just didn't have enough time to come back and Kyle Campbell was able to wrap up the CPLMS final win of the season and secure the $500 bounty on his good friend. Rumor has it he at least did by him his waffle house dinner.
