The program opened with a qualifying race March 26 at Circuit of The Americas, and the first money race followed April 2 at Richmond Raceway. The Dash 4 Cash event continued April 8 at Martinsville and again on April 23 at Talladega Superspeedway. The competition wrapped on April 30 at Dover.

How it works is the first of the four eligible Dash 4 Cash competitors to finish in a race in the program will win the $100,000 bonus. The winner and the next three highest finishing Xfinity Series drivers (who have declared for points in that series) will qualify for the next event.

In addition to the payout to drivers, Comcast is committed to helping people access the transformative power of the internet and to closing the digital divide. Once again, the company is leveraging the NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash platform to continue to make an impact. Since 2018, the company has donated both laptops and more than $200,000 of funding to racing communities. Comcast has also installed free WiFi inside community centers, as part of its Lift Zones program, in markets where the popular and highly competitive four-race series takes place.

2022 Dash 4 Cash recaps

At Dover: Noah Gragson’s fourth-place result led him to the fourth and final $100,000 bonus of 2022, as all four JR Motorsports cars finished in the top five. The only outlier was Ty Gibbs in third for Joe Gibbs Racing. Josh Berry ultimately won. Gragson’s Dash 4 Cash competitors were sixth-finishing AJ Allmendinger, 10th-place Ryan Sieg and Landon Cassill in 12th.

At Talladega: Another third-place result handed AJ Allmendinger his second consecutive $100,000 payday, this time after multiple overtimes at Talladega. The Kaulig Racing driver led six of the 124 laps in the Ag-Pro 300, and he outdistanced teammate Landon Cassill, Austin Hill and Brandon Jones in the Dash 4 Cash field. Cassill finish fifth, but race-long dominator Hill (27th) and Brandon Jones (26th) each crashed out.

At Martinsville: AJ Allmendinger’s third-place finish secured him the $100,000 bonus among the four Dash 4 Cash contenders. Sam Mayer looked to be the victor, but a run-in during overtime with Ty Gibbs ruined both their chances — and led to a pit-road fight. Mayer ended up fifth, Gibbs eighth. Riley Herbst, the fourth competitor this week, placed sixth.
