The last chance for four Xfinity Series drivers to walk away with $100,000 is here.

This weekend’s OneMain Financial 200 at Dover International Speedway marks the end of this season’s Dash 4 Cash campaign, where four drivers compete against each other for the bonus money in four races.

The final set of drivers was established last Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway by the top four finishing drivers competing for points in the Xfinity Series.

But the lineup hit a snag on Wednesday when it was announced that race winner Spencer Gallagher was suspended indefinitely for violating NASCAR’s substance abuse policy.

The set of four drivers now includes JR Motorsports’ Elliott Sadler and Justin Allgaier, Joe Gibbs Racing’s Brandon Jones and independent driver Ryan Sieg. Sieg takes the place of Gallagher.

Sadler enters the race having won the last two Dash 4 Cash bonuses at Talladega and Richmond.

Just like with the first three Dash 4 Cash races, the four drivers will not have to compete against any Cup drivers in the race.

Here’s a look at each driver’s record at the 1-mile track.
