NASCAR officials released the 2024 schedule Tuesday for the Xfinity Series’ Dash 4 Cash initiative, which returns for its 16th season with four April races at a variety of oval tracks.
The schedule was released Tuesday afternoon during a preseason competition briefing at the NASCAR Research & Development Center. The program presents an opportunity for four eligible Xfinity Series regulars to collect an extra $100,000 at each race.

The circuit’s 250-lap event at Richmond Raceway on March 30 will serve as a qualifier, setting the four-driver field eligible for the Dash 4 Cash opener. The rest of this year’s Dash 4 Cash schedule:
- April 6: Martinsville Speedway
- April 13: Texas Motor Speedway
- April 20: Talladega Superspeedway
- April 27: Dover Motor Speedway
Martinsville, Talladega and Dover were part of the Dash 4 Cash rotation last season. Texas makes its first appearance in the four-race schedule since 2010, just the second year of the incentive program.
The top-finishing eligible Xfinity Series regular at each Dash 4 Cash event will pocket a six-figure payday and join the other three top finishers in the next D4C field. The process will refresh and repeat for each race until the program’s season finale at Dover.
Xfinity Series director Wayne Auton confirmed Tuesday that Cup Series drivers would not be eligible to participate in either the four Dash 4 Cash races or the final eight events of the season — the regular-season finale Sept. 20 at Bristol Motor Speedway and then the seven races that make up the Xfinity Series’ postseason.
Auton said that Cup Series drivers would not be restricted from the July 6 Xfinity Series event on the Chicago Street Course as they were last year. He also indicated that Cup Series competitors also would be permitted to enter the June 15 Xfinity race at Iowa Speedway the day before the Cup Series’ debut at the 0.875-mile oval.
