More About the NASCAR's Dash for Cash Program
There will be more on the line June 28 during the NASCAR Nationwide Series Feed the Children 300 at Kentucky Speedway than most races. This year, the Kentucky race will be the qualifier for the “Dash 4 Cash,” moving up one week from 2012 when the July Daytona race served as the program’s qualifier. Kentucky will determine the four eligible drivers that could win one of the four $100,000 payouts that make up the program beginning July 5 at Daytona.
Following Daytona, the next three series races are Dash 4 Cash (D4C) events: July 13 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, July 21 at Chicagoland Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 27.
Last August, Sam Hornish Jr. was the highest-finishing points-eligible driver in the final D4C race at Iowa Speedway. Not only did he win $100,000 but his fan partner, Tammy Altieri, also won $100,000.
“One of the best parts about it is that it is one of the only times that the Sprint Cup Series drivers wish they were Nationwide drivers,” Hornish Jr., currently second in the NASCAR Nationwide Series standings. “We had a lot good races throughout that stretch last season. We were finally able to win the Dash4Cash bonus at Iowa. For us it is great because it is a nice bonus, but at the end of the day to be able to give the fan a $100,000 as well was awesome. She was so excited and it was truly life changing for her. Nationwide Insurance and their commitment to this series is unprecedented.”
Here’s how the Dash 4 Cash program works: The top-four finishers in the Kentucky race that are eligible to receive NASCAR Nationwide Series championship driver points will qualify for the first D4C race at Daytona International Speedway. The highest finisher of those four drivers at Daytona – he or she does not have to win the race – will win the first $100,000 D4C award and automatically qualify for the next event at New Hampshire. Additionally, the top-three finishing points-eligible drivers at Daytona will also qualify for the race at New Hampshire. Those rules will apply for the remaining three events. If one driver wins the first three D4C awards and then wins the Indianapolis race outright, Nationwide Insurance will award the driver an additional $600,000 bonus, bringing the total payout to $1 million.
Fans can apply to be a part of the action by entering the NASCAR Nationwide Series $100,000 Sweepstakes at www.nascar.com/dash4cash. Four lucky individuals and a guest will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the final D4C event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway during Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard. The four fans will be randomly paired with the four eligible D4C drivers for that race, and the fan whose driver wins the D4C award will also go home with a check for $100,000, like Altieri did last year.
