After an off-weekend, the NASCAR Xfinity Series gets back at it today with the Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300.

And there’s an added bonus — this will also be a Dash 4 Cash race.

Justin Allgaier won the first Dash 4 Cash race last month at Phoenix, earning a $100,000 prize.

If Allgaier can win today’s race and the Dash races at Dover and Richmond, he would earn $1 million in total.
