By Unique Hiram (NEWTON, Iowa.) – @TBayne21 (Trevor Bayne) won the final round of the NASCAR Nationwide Dash 4 Cash competition, taking home an extra $100,000. He also helped Henry, IL resident James Dennis increase his income by that same amount at the conclusion of the U.S. Cellular 250 Presented By New Holland at Iowa Speedway.
“I really appreciate Nationwide Insurance giving us this chance to battle for something else. When you are running third or fourth, if a Cup guy is leading then it creates that extra little bit of adrenaline when you got all the blue spoilers all around you on that last green, white, checkered. Great weekend for our team and hopefully we can build on this.”
The 2011 Daytona 500 champion was asked his thoughts about the new title sponsor, in 2015, offering a similar type of program in the future.
“I think it was really innovative for them to come up with this program. Fans want to see a battle between Nationwide drivers week-to-week and any kind of incentives like that I think are really cool. Obviously, we have the championship to battle for but I think that week-to-week battles are awesome. We don’t mind it a bit because it’s extra money that you have the chance to win,” said Bayne.
“I think it would be important to try to come up with some kind of incentive program like this for fans. So I’m definitely a supporter of it and fortunately we won the last one ever I guess for now unless we can talk them in to come back for Dash4Cash – at least next year,” he added.
Asked what he was going to do with his earnings, Dash 4 Cash Fan Winner James Dennis quickly responded, “it’s all going in the bank.”
“I’ve got to wait for the check to clear so that way I know it’s real,” he laughed. “I will maybe invest some of it and just sit on it. I don’t really have any extravagant plans to go out and purchase any expense thing or anything. I’m going to play it conservative.”
