August 25, 2017
NASCAR announced on Friday the four tracks that will make up the Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash program, a springtime grand slam that will include Talladega Superspeedway for the first time.
For the first time in program history, the four D4C races will be run consecutively on the overall series schedule, starting at Bristol Motor Speedway on April 14. The program will then continue at Richmond Raceway on April 20, followed by Talladega on April 28 before ending at Dover International Speedway on May 5.
"We’re excited for the return of the very popular NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash program, which will take place at four unique racetracks in 2018," said Jim Cassidy, NASCAR senior vice president of Racing Operations. "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 rules and format for the four-race program will be announced at a later date, but all drivers earning championship points in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will not be allowed to participate. The Dash 4 Cash offered over $100,000 in earnings for eligible Xfinity Series drivers this past season.
Talladega will mark the third time that a restrictor-plate event was on the program schedule; Daytona hosted races in 2011 and 2013.
This is the fourth consecutive season that the Dash 4 Cash includes Bristol and Dover. Richmond has also been on the schedule three times -- 2011, 2016 and 2017.
