NASCAR officials released the races that will make up the Xfinity Series’ Dash 4 Cash and Gander Outdoors Truck Series’ Triple Truck Challenge in 2020.
Dash 4 Cash will return to three of the four tracks that made up its springtime swing this season. The Triple Truck Challenge — nicknamed “The Trip” — will visit three new venues and take place earlier in the season.

“The 2020 schedule is a little different, so that definitely had us going back and looking,” said Meghan Miley, NASCAR senior director of Racing Operations. “The goal of it when looking at what events we’re going to do, we want them to be consecutive because that just keeps the momentum going for the program. Additionally, three of the four markets are key for Comcast, with the program wrapping up in their back yard.”
The Dash 4 Cash program will offer bonus money for eligible Xfinity Series regulars at four selected tracks:
March 28: Texas Motor Speedway
April 4: Bristol Motor Speedway
April 25: Talladega Superspeedway
May 2: Dover International Speedway
Texas returns to the Dash 4 Cash series for the first time since 2010, the program’s second season. Bristol, Talladega and Dover will collectively return to the Dash 4 Cash schedule for the third straight year. The series’ March 21 visit to Homestead-Miami Speedway will serve as the Dash 4 Cash qualifier, which will determine the four eligible drivers for the Texas opener.
Richmond Raceway drops from the Dash 4 Cash program, but picks up another incentive-laden race with the Triple Truck Challenge. Gander Trucks teams will compete on the .75-mile track next season for the first time since 2005.
The full slate for the Triple Truck Challenge:
April 18: Richmond Raceway
May 1: Dover International Speedway
May 15: Charlotte Motor Speedway
The Triple Truck Challenge was introduced in 2019, held at Texas, Iowa and Gateway in June.
Other rules and prize-money payouts for Dash 4 Cash and the Triple Truck Challenge will be announced at a later date.
