Show Me the Money History
The Show Me the Money Series was created in 2009 to coincide with Montgomery Motor Speedway's reopening under the ownership of Bobby and Mark Knox. Jason Young from Houston, TX was the first driver to ever win a Show Me the Money Series race, taking the checkers in a May 6th 100 Lapper. Hunter Robbins won on July 18th in a 100 lap race, creating a three way tie for the series points lead between Young, Robbins, and Augie Grill with two races to go. The October 10th 100 lap race went to John Bolen, while Grill was second and took a slim 5 point lead into the final race of the season. Young's third place finish on October 10th put him second in the standings, while a bad race for Robbins nearly took him out of the championship picture. The final Show Me the Money Race of 2009, the Alabama 200, was dominated by Augie Grill, who started on pole and led all 125 laps. Grill's victory earned him the inaugural Show Me the Money Series Championship over Jason Young, John Bolen, Hunter Robbins, and Josh Belter. The 2009 Season for the Show Me the Money Series was very successful, seeing an average car count of 21 cars per race, with 34 different driver's competing in 2009.
