Nashville, TN. — NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Kevin Harvick took home more than the Gibson Les Paul Trophy guitar after winning Saturday’s race at Nashville Superspeedway – thanks to Nationwide Insurance’s “Dash 4 Cash” bonus.
Kevin Harvick won $25,000 in the first Nationwide Insurance “Dash 4 Cash” race of the 2010 season.
“Congratulations to Kevin Harvick,” said John Aman, associate vice president for Nationwide Insurance. “We’re proud to make Victory Lane a little sweeter this week by presenting him with a $25,000 ‘Dash 4 Cash’ bonus.”
Nationwide Insurance introduced “Dash 4 Cash,” a first-of-its-kind bonus program for the NASCAR Nationwide Series, in 2009. This year, the four races in the “Dash 4 Cash” bonus program are at Nashville (April 3), Kentucky Speedway (June 12), Iowa Speedway (July 31) and Texas Motor speedway (Nov. 6).
Just like last year, eligible winners at each of the “Dash 4 Cash” races will receive an additional $25,000 bonus. If the race winner is not eligible, the prize money rolls to the next “Dash 4 Cash” race.
This year’s season-ending bonus for the NASCAR driver accumulating the most points in the four-race program is up to $75,000, a nice raise from the $50,000 bonus in 2009. In addition, to be eligible for the year-end bonus, drivers cannot have driven in more than seven NASCAR Sprint Cup races during the season.
The 2010 “Dash 4 Cash” bonus program is open to all NASCAR Nationwide Series regulars and up-and-comers, including those who may not have a full-time NASCAR Nationwide Series ride. NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers with a full-time ride in NASCAR Sprint Cup must enter every NASCAR Nationwide Series event in order to qualify for the cash payouts in the four races.
