Memphis, TN — NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Brad Keselowski had several thousand extra reasons to celebrate after the checkered flag at the Kroger on Track for the Cure 250 at Memphis Motorsports Park.
Brad Keselowski won $25,000 in the final Nationwide Insurance Dash 4 Cash race of the 2009 season and the overall $50,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus for the highest cumulative points from the four NASCAR Nationwide Series stand-alone races in Nashville, Kentucky, Iowa and Memphis.
Joey Logano won the first two Dash 4 Cash races at Nashville Superspeedway and Kentucky Speedway. Logano did not run a full schedule in the Nationwide Series this year and was ineligible to win the bonus. Brad Keselowski took home the $75,000 rollover bonus after winning the US Cellular 250 at Iowa Speedway in August.
“NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers and teams are among the best in the world,” said Jennifer Hanley, Senior Vice President of Marketing Services for Nationwide Insurance. “Nationwide Insurance’s Dash 4 Cash bonus added a lot of excitement to the 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series stand-alone races and we’re proud to present Brad Keselowski with these bonuses.”
Nationwide Insurance’s Dash 4 Cash is a first-of-its-kind bonus program for the NASCAR Nationwide Series implemented by Nationwide, NASCAR and ESPN focused around four stand-alone races in Nashville, Kentucky, Iowa and Memphis.
The program was 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 had to enter every NASCAR Nationwide Series event in order to qualify for the cash payouts.
