Xfinity Dash 4 Cash Round Two: Richmond Raceway

Xfinity Dash 4 Cash Round Two: Richmond Raceway

Fighting through some great short track action last weekend, Joe Gibbs Racing’s Ryan Preece banked the first $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus at Bristol Motor Speedway when he grabbed his second NASCAR Xfinity Series win of his career.

This weekend, the Xfinity Dash 4 Cash program continues at Richmond Raceway for some more short track beatin’-and-bangin’ as Justin Allgaier, Daniel Hemric, Elliott Sadler and Spencer Gallagher will compete for the second $100,000 bonus of the season in the ToyotaCare 250 on Friday, April 20 at 7 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

The highest finisher at Richmond between Allgaier, Hemric, Sadler and Gallagher will win the $100,000 prize, and 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 Dash 4 Cash event at Talladega. Last weekend’s winner, Ryan Preece, would have qualified for the second round of the Dash 4 Cash at Richmond, but was not scheduled to run this weekend due to his part-time schedule and therefore the spot went to the next-highest finisher - Spencer Gallagher.

The Dash 4 Cash races are being held at Bristol Motor Speedway (April 14), Richmond Raceway (April 20), Talladega Superspeedway (April 28) and Dover International Speedway (May 5) this season. This is the first year Talladega has participated in the Dash 4 Cash program.

Comcast is also donating 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.Comcast's $10,000 Internet Essentials donation during the Bristol race weekend went to the Quest Foundation for Washington County Schools in Tennessee.

All four of the Dash 4 Cash qualifiers for Richmond Raceway this weekend have run well, but none have won, at the 0.75-mile raceway. Daniel Hemric (3.5) has the best average finish of the four qualifiers at Richmond; followed by Sadler (13.5), Allgaier (14.6) and Gallagher (16.3).

Last season, Justin Allgaier and Daniel Hemric finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively, in this event; just like they did this past weekend at Bristol. Allgaier took home the check at Richmond in 2017 and in doing so became the only driver to win at least one round in the Dash 4 Cash program the past two seasons (2017 Phoenix, Richmond; 2016 Indianapolis).
