The Dash 4 Cash program is back for the NASCAR Xfinity Series and this time the schedule is a little different compared to past years due to a revised 2020 schedule as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dash 4 Cash kicked off last weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Noah Gragson, Chase Briscoe, Brandon Jones and Harrison Burton were the four qualifiers. Gragson, who finished runner-up to AJ Allmendinger, ultimately won the Dash 4 Cash bonus.
As the Xfinity Series heads to Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend for a double-header, the second installment of Dash 4 Cash will be for Sunday’s race, the Contender Boats 250 (12 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
Since Gragson won the prize and finished runner-up, he earned a spot in this weekend’s competition along with AJ Allmendinger, Justin Haley and Daniel Hemric. So, it will be two drivers from Kaulig Racing and two drivers from JR Motorsports competing for the big prize.
The first of the four competitors to finish at Homestead-Miami will win the $100,000 bonus. The Homestead bonus winner and the top three highest finishing drivers (who have declared points in the series) will qualify for the next Dash 4 Cash event at Talladega Superspeedway.
In addition, Xfinity is planning to make donations in each Dash 4 Cash race market to continue showing their companywide commitment of connecting families, veterans and seniors to necessary digital tools during this difficult time.
