The exciting new format will qualify four XFINITY Series drivers to race for a $100,000 cash bonus.
“We’re thrilled that our DC Solar 200 on March 18 will now be included in NASCAR’s Dash 4 Cash program,” said Sperber. “This will make an already exciting race more intense with so much on the line.”
The Dash 4 Cash program will bring with it a new on-track race format consisting of three stages in the DC Solar 200.
The top two NASCAR XFINITY Series full-time drivers from both Stage #1 and Stage #2 will become Dash 4 Cash eligible in the final stage.
The highest finishing driver among the four Dash4Cash eligible drivers in the final stage will be awarded a $100,000 bonus.
It’s possible that fans will witness multiple winners at Phoenix Raceway on March 18 - the winner of the DC Solar 200, the winner of the Dash 4 Cash and the two stage winners.
The Dash 4 Cash program has been a highlight of the XFINITY Series season since 2009, including the 2016 XFINITY Series Champion Daniel Suárez winning the 2015 Dash 4 Cash.
