'Dash 4 Cash' Begins at New Hampshire

Dash 4 Cash

The top-four finishing NASCAR Nationwide Series championship contenders in last weekend’s race at Daytona – Regan Smith, Ryan Sieg, Ryan Reed and Jeremy Clements – qualified to compete in the first round of Nationwide’s Dash 4 Cash program at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday with an opportunity to win $100,000. Each of the four drivers that have qualified for this season’s Round One of the Dash 4 Cash are first-time participants to the program.

With four newbies locked in, the cash can land in almost anyone’s pockets. Smith and Clements have made three starts at NHMS each posting average finishes of 19.3 and 19.6, respectively. Sunoco Rookie of the Year contenders Reed and Sieg will be making their series track debuts at New Hampshire.

“Being part of the Dash 4 Cash program is really cool," Smith said. "We missed out on it last year and it was disappointing because I really wanted to be in the running for $100,000. It’s exciting. Nationwide does a great job promoting our series and the Dash 4 Cash adds a whole other level. As competitors we all want to win, but this definitely puts a larger spotlight on these next four races."

The highest finisher of the four eligible drivers at New Hampshire will win the money and automatically qualify for the Dash 4 Cash at Chicagoland the following weekend. The three highest finishing NNS regulars at New Hampshire not already qualified will also get to compete for the $100,000 bonus at Chicagoland. The final two events at Indianapolis and Iowa will carry the same qualifying requirements.

If one driver wins the first three legs of the Dash 4 Cash and the Iowa race outright, Nationwide Insurance will award that driver an extra $600,000.

Four fans will be selected to win an all-expense paid trip to Iowa Speedway where they will be randomly paired with the four eligible drivers. The fan paired with the driver who wins the Dash 4 Cash at Iowa will also walk away with $100,000.
