The NASCAR X-Finity Series visits “Thunder Valley” this weekend for Saturday afternoon’s Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300, the opening race in the revamped “Dash for Cash” promotion. Traditional qualifying will set the forty-car field for each of the four races that will be part of the program this year: Saturday at Bristol, April 23rd at Richmond International Raceway, May 14th at Dover International Speedway and July 23rd at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. After qualifying, the drivers will be split into two fifty-lap heat races of twenty cars each. The top two finishers in each heat race who are eligible to collect X-FINITY Series points will then compete for a one hundred thousand-dollar bonus in the main event, which will go to the highest finisher among those four competitors. All forty original qualifiers will race in the points-paying main event, but only the top two eligible finishers in each of the heat races will be in line to collect the Dash for Cash bonus.
