Ty Dillon is sure to remember this past Saturday, April 23. Besides finishing second in the Richmond 250, he also won the $100,000 Dash4Cash bonus.
Dillon was eligible for the prize after winning one of two heat races early Saturday. He then finished ahead of three other qualifiers in the feature race to claim his second bonus since 2014. The incentive applies only to drivers who are eligible for XFINITY Series points.
"Today was an all-around excellent day for our No. 3 WESCO team,” said Dillon after the race. “It's cool to win this Dash4Cash and I can't thank XFINITY enough for allowing us to race this format.”
Dillon crossed the finish line in the Richmond 250 .226 seconds behind winner Dale Earnhardt Jr.
"To finish second, to run the way we did all day was just impressive for us," said Dillon.

This was Dillon’s second top-10 finish in the #3 WESCO Chevy this year. He placed seventh in the Boyd Gaming 300 in Las Vegas last month.
Dillon is now third in the XFINITY point standings. He’ll be back in the WESCO Chevy July 16 in New Hampshire.
The Ultimate Fan Experience
WESCO was honored to give two lucky fans an unforgettable experience at Saturday’s race. John Hines from Winchester, Va., was the Grand Prize winner of our “Ultimate Fan Experience” promotion that ran last month. He and his wife Kimberly received a complimentary trip to Richmond to meet Dillon and enjoy a weekend of VIP treatment.
"I want to thank everyone at WESCO for the great experience in Richmond with Team RCR and Ty Dillon,” said Hines. “Everyone from WESCO made us feel right at home with them, and we were honored to have been selected as the contest winners.”
