    2017 NASCAR Xfinity Dash-4-Cash Information (Credit to NASCAR.com):
    Dash4Cash-main.jpg

    The NASCAR XFINITY Series Dash 4 Cash has an updated format for 2017 with the implementation of stages in each race of the series' 33-event circuit. Stage 1 and Stage 2 will determine which four drivers are eligible in the main race for the Dash 4 Cash prize, and a $100,000 check for each event.

    Plus, $600,000 would be awarded to a driver who wins all four Dash 4 Cash bonuses, making the total possible winnings $1 million this year. Here is a quick rundown of how the format works.

    THE RACES
    Phoenix Raceway (March 18)
    Bristol Motor Speedway (April 22)
    Richmond International Raceway (April 29)
    Dover International Speedway (June 3)

    RACE FORMATS
    Coors Light Pole Qualifying will determine the starting positions for the race.

    The field will then begin the race with Stage 1, followed by Stage 2 and the Final Stage.

    Phoenix Raceway is new to the four-race Dash 4 Cash schedule this year, replacing Indianapolis Motor Speedway as a designated event.

    Based on the participation guidelines announced last year, drivers with more than five years of full-time experience are restricted from the four races in the Dash 4 Cash program.

    DASH-4-CASH ELIGIBILITY

    The top-two finishing NASCAR XFINITY Series points-earning drivers in each of the two stages will make up the four-driver Dash 4 Cash field for the Final Stage. Once Stage 1 is complete, the two drivers who lock into the main field won't have their position counted following Stage 2 to ensure a four-driver field.

    The highest finisher in the final stage among the four eligible drivers wins the Dash 4 Cash and a $100,000 prize.

    PLAYOFF ELIGIBILITY

    If a driver earns two Dash 4 Cash wins (not race wins) over the four Dash 4 Cash races, that is equivalent to a regular-season race win for XFINITY Series postseason eligibility.

    Bristol has apparently moved their victory lane to the front stretch, moving away from their permanent vl up top turn 3.

    Agreed. It's not looking good for a Sunday race (Monday race looking highly likely as of now, unless it stops raining early enough on Sunday night for them to dry the track and hold the race).

    Honestly I'd love it if they just cut their losses now and decided to go prime time Monday night. Obviously they won't because of the people who bought tickets and have to go work on Monday, but it'd be great to not have to check freaking Bob Pockrass' Twitter all day Sunday to find out when the green flag might drop lol.

    Screw him

    Facebook, this thread and RuRa are more than enough to keep me updated during a rain delay (these days those alone keep me updated with nearly everything)

    As for going Monday night prime time why not? Would be better than dragging it out all day Sunday and possibly running it late Sunday into early Monday morning.

    Or even worse, postponing it from Sunday to Monday at Noon when literally nobody can watch.

    Looks like the fall Martinsville race will most likely be ending under the lights with the later start time!

    Disappointing. Charlotte having the only night race in the chase was nice. I guess this will offer better racing, at least a little bit better.

    And I think this is the first move in order to run the second Charlotte race in a road course. Putting lights in the infield is difficult because it's quite full with RV's on race weekends so...why not to race it under natural light?

    Qualifying has been cancelled due to the rain. Practices will be run hopefully later.

    Drivers are complaining about the groove being moved back down to the bottom now. I must've missed something. What did they do to the track?
