The 2018 version of the highly successful NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash program is reaching its crescendo this weekend at the famous Dover International Speedway in the OneMain Financial 200 on Saturday, May 5 (at 1:30 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

Four drivers qualified at Talladega for a chance to compete for the $100,000 bonus one last time this season - JR Motorsport’s Justin Allgaier and Elliott Sadler, Joe Gibbs Racing’s Brandon Jones and RSS Racing’s Ryan Sieg. Sieg was named as the fourth qualifier after Spencer Gallagher was disqualified due to a penalty announced after Talladega.

Elliott Sadler has been the most successful at banking the big checks this season, as he has brought home the last two Xfinity Dash 4 Cash bonuses (Richmond and Talladega). Joe Gibbs Racing’s Ryan Preece is only other driver to score the big Dash 4 Cash bonus this season when he won at Bristol a few weeks back.

Sadler’s been at the top of his game lately, in nine starts this season he has posted seven top-fives (series-most) and nine top-tens (series-most). He has made twenty starts at Dover and has finished in the top-ten in ten of his last twelve starts.

No stranger to winning the Dash 4 Cash is Justin Allgaier, who took home the big checks twice last season (Phoenix and Richmond) and this year is looking to make it two seasons in a row with at least one $100,00 bonus.

"Qualifying for the Dash 4 Cash is super important. Hats off to Xfinity and Comcast for all they do for the series," said Allgaier.

Justin Allgaier jumped from fifth to third in the points following his comeback run at Talladega on the final restart after running out of gas in the closing laps. He has now posted five top-fives and six top-tens this season. In fourteen series starts at the Monster Mile, he has posted four top-fives and seven top-tens; including a runner-up finish last fall.

Brandon Jones wrestled a runner-up finish from his competition in Talladega to qualify for this weekend’s Dash 4 Cash, his series career-best. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver is eighth in the championship standings and in nine starts he has posted five top-tens. He has four starts at Dover with a best finish of seventeenth in 2016.

RSS Racing’s Ryan Sieg finished sixth at Talladega to qualify for the Dash 4 Cash this weekend at Dover. Sieg is fifteenth in the series standings after posting one top-ten and an average finish of 19.7. Sieg has made eight series starts at Dover posting best finish of thirteenth in 2014; he finished sixteenth in this race last season.
All four Dash 4 Cash qualifiers this weekend are solid competitors this season and currently in the top 10 in series championship standings. Amongst the four Dash 4 Cash qualifiers this weekend, Elliott Sadler (11.8) has the best average finish, followed by Justin Allgaier (12.7), Ryan Sieg (16.1) and Brandon Jones (27.5).
