Driver Could Win $1 Million At Indiana 250 On July 27 At IMS

The Indiana 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday, July 27 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be the final event in the Dash 4 Cash, a popular, returning program that could award $1 million to a driver and will award $100,000 to a fan.

This year, the Nationwide Series race June 28 at Kentucky Speedway will be the qualifier for the “Dash 4 Cash,” the beginning of the popular NASCAR Nationwide Series program that could result in a $1 million payout to one talented driver. The Kentucky race will determine the four eligible drivers that could win one of the four $100,000 payouts that make up the program beginning July 5 at Daytona International Speedway.

Following Daytona, the next three series races are Dash 4 Cash (D4C) events: July 13 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, July 21 at Chicagoland Speedway and the Indiana 250 on July 27 at IMS.

Last August, Sam Hornish Jr. was the highest-finishing points-eligible driver in the final D4C race at Iowa Speedway – which paid him and his fan partner, Tammy Altieri, $100,000 each.

“We had a lot of good races throughout that stretch last season,” said Hornish, second in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series standings. “We were finally able to win the Dash 4 Cash bonus at Iowa. For us, it is great because it is a nice bonus, but at the end of the day to be able to give the fan a $100,000, as well, was awesome. She was so excited, and it was truly life-changing for her. Nationwide Insurance and their commitment to this series is unprecedented.”

Here’s how the Dash 4 Cash (Twitter – #Dash4Cash) program works:


  • The top-four finishers in the Kentucky race who are eligible to receive NASCAR Nationwide Series championship driver points will qualify for the first D4C race at Daytona International Speedway.
  • The highest finisher of those four drivers at Daytona – he or she does not have to win the race – will win the first $100,000 D4C award and automatically qualify for the next event at New Hampshire. Additionally, the top-three finishing points-eligible drivers at Daytona will also qualify for the race at New Hampshire.
  • Those rules will apply for the remaining three events. If one driver wins the first three D4C awards and then wins the Indianapolis race outright, Nationwide Insurance will award the driver an additional $600,000 bonus, bringing the total payout to $1 million.

Fans can apply to be a part of the action by entering the NASCAR Nationwide Series $100,000 Sweepstakes at

Four lucky individuals and a guest will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the final D4C event, the Indiana 250 at IMS during the Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard. The four fans will be randomly paired with the four eligible D4C drivers for that race, and the fan whose driver wins the D4C award will also go home with a check for $100,000, like Altieri did last year.

“The Nationwide Insurance Dash 4 Cash program is something that is unique to the racing community in general,” said Nationwide Series contender Justin Allgaier. “I have not seen a title sponsor develop a program quite like this is. The money part is really cool, but the prestige and the want to win it is the biggest part. We’ve been fortunate to qualify for it several times, but I have also been on the outside looking in. Hoping this year we can qualify for all four races and go for the big bonus at the end.”


2013 Kroger Super Weekend tickets: Ticket orders for the 2013 Kroger Super Weekend at the Brickyard can be made at and through the IMS Ticket Office at (317) 492-6700, or (800) 822-INDY outside the Indianapolis area, or by visiting the ticket office at the IMS Administration Building at the corner of Georgetown Road and 16th Street between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. (ET) Monday-Friday.

General admission tickets will cost $10 for Thursday, July 25, $30 for Friday, July 26, $25 for Saturday, July 27 and $30 for Sunday, July 28. A four-day Kroger Super Weekend general admission ticket is $80, a great value for the ultimate race weekend. A three-day general admission ticket (Thursday-Saturday) is $65.

Children ages 12 and under will be admitted free any of the four days of the Super Weekend at the Brickyard when accompanied by an adult with a general admission ticket.

Reserved tickets for the Saturday and Sunday action also will be available at various price ranges.
