As the car count continues to grow for the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series, there’s reason to believe that 50 cars (give or take a few) could show up to Speedweeks next month in Daytona. By virtue of more interest in NASCAR’s version of AAA, they’ve decided to increase the car count from 36 to 38 cars this season.
That move was announced on Monday.
Also announced was the Dash 4 Cash and Triple Truck Challenge races too.
This will be the 14th season of the popular Dash 4 Cash incentive program. It all begins with the qualifier race on March 26 at Circuit of The Americas for the the Pit Boss 250 (4:30 p.m. ET, FS1, PRN). The top four Dash 4 Cash-eligible Xfinity Series drivers in that race will advance to compete in the Dash 4 Cash opener at the Richmond Raceway (1:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN) on April 2.
The top four Xfinity Series regulars in that race advances to the April 8 race at the Martinsville Speedway (7:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN) a week later. Then, the top four in that race on the Virginia paperclip will advance to Talladega Superspeedway (4 p.m. ET, FOX, MRN) on April 23.
The finale is at Dover Motor Speedway (1:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN) on April 30.
NASCAR on Monday revealed the schedule for this season’s Triple Truck Challenge in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, the popular series of races that launched in 2019 as a chance for drivers to win bonus money as they competed for checkered flags at select events.
These three races are:
June 4: World Wide Technology Raceway (1:30 p.m ET, FS1, MRN)
June 24: Nashville Superspeedway (8 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN)
July 9: Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (1:30 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN)
