Xfinity’s Dash 4 Cash Makes 2018 Debut With Qualifier In The Lone Star State

Everyone loves a bonus, and this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway in the My Bariatric Solutions 300 on Saturday, April 7 (3 p.m. ET on FOX, PRN and SiriusXM), Comcast will be holding the qualifier for the 2018 NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash program. The Dash 4 Cash provides four talented drivers with the opportunity to compete for an additional $100,000 prize at select races.

Here is the format for this season’s Dash 4 Cash program:

  •  Full-time NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers will compete for four positions in consecutive Dash 4 Cash events:

o   Bristol Motor Speedway (April 14)

o   Richmond Raceway (April 21)

o   Talladega Superspeedway (April 28)

o   Dover International Speedway (May 5)

  • The top four NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers at Texas Motor Speedway will qualify for the first Dash 4 Cash event at Bristol Motor Speedway.
  •    Of the four competing for Dash 4 Cash, the highest finisher wins the $100,000 prize. That winner and the three highest finishing full-time NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers, for a total of four contenders, will qualify for the next week’s event.

    For 2018, Comcast is adding a new element to the NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash program. In addition to the $100,000 awarded to each Dash 4 Cash winner, Comcast will also donate a total of $40,000 to local organizations within race markets on behalf of the Internet Essentials program. Comcast’s Internet Essentials is the nation’s largest program for getting low-income households online, having connected 4 million low-income Americans since 2011.

The Dash 4 Cash program began back in 2009 and has become a driver – and fan – favorite over the years. Last season Justin Allgaier captured two Dash 4 Cash wins while Daniel Hemric and William Byron each took home one of the extra-large checks awarded to the Dash 4 Cash winners.

Here are the top 10 NASCAR Xfinity Series championship contending drivers in average finish at Texas Motor Speedway heading into this weekend – Cole Custer (5.0), Christopher Bell (6.0), Elliott Sadler (11.3), Matt Tifft (11.5), Justin Allgaier (12.3), Spencer Gallagher (14.5), Ryan Reed (15.9), Michael Annett (16.1), Ryan Sieg (18.0) and Brandon Jones (19.5).
