DASH 4 CASH AT IMS: Brian Vickers’ fifth-place finish at Chicagoland Speedway last week qualified him for the fourth and final Nationwide Series Dash 4 Cash race which takes place at the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend. Vickers has qualified for three of the four Dash 4 Cash events, but has yet to win one of the $100,000 bonuses. Saturday’s Indiana 250 will be his final chance. The Dash 4 Cash at Indy places Vickers up against points leader Sam Hornish Jr., Austin Dillon and his teammate Elliott Sadler. The highest finisher of those four will be taking home the $100,000 check courtesy of series sponsor Nationwide Insurance.
VICKERS AT INDY: While Saturday will be only the second time that NASCAR’s Nationwide Series has competed at the Brickyard, Vickers has the benefit of seven Sprint Cup Series starts at the 2.5-mile track. Two of those seven Indianapolis Motor Speedway races resulted in top-five finishes for Vickers.
