NASCAR announced earlier on Friday that there will be a new appearance in the Dash 4 Cash program for the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2018. Talladega Superspeedway will join Bristol Motor Speedway, Richmond Raceway, and Dover International Speedway in the Dash 4 Cash program. Talladega replaces Phoenix Raceway in the Dash 4 Cash program.

“We’re excited for the return of the very popular NASCAR XFINITY Series Dash 4 Cash program, which will take place at four unique race tracks in 2018,” said Jim Cassidy, NASCAR Senior Vice President of Racing Operations, to NASCAR.com. “Each track demands different techniques and strategies, which will ultimately benefit the fans. It will again put a premium on the immense talent in the series, as the spotlight continues to shine on our rising stars during this four consecutive race stretch.”

The details for the Dash 4 Cash will be announced at a later date. This year the program took the highest XFINITY series regulars from the first two stages to compete in the final stage for a $100,000 bonus for being the highest finisher of the four drivers. If a driver won all four events, they would receive an additional $600,000. If a driver won two or more Dash 4 Cash events, the team would automatically qualify for a spot in the playoffs.

With the new participation guidelines coming into affect next season, no Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drive will be allowed to participate in any Dash 4 Cash event.
