Tifft at Bristol Motor Speedway:
Matt will be making his first career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Bristol Motor Speedway. He does have one career start at Bristol which came in the 2014 NASCAR K&N Series event where Matt finished ninth. This event will be Tifft’s fourth career XFINITY Series start and the third one this season in the No. 24 Toyota.
Matt’s Thoughts on Bristol Motor Speedway:
“Bristol will be a very challenging race but I am looking forward to getting back there since it has been a few years since I last raced there.”
“It will be helpful being able to have back-to-back races with the No. 24 team and Wayne Setterington (crew chief). We made some good gains last week in Texas and I think we all learned alot which will definitely help us this week.”
New Dash 4 Cash Format:
The NASCAR XFINITY Series will take racing back to its roots with Heat races, beginning with the first of four Dash 4 Cash events this weekend in Bristol. All Dash 4 Cash events are comprised of two Heats and a Main.
For these unique Dash 4 Cash events, traditional, single-car qualifying will determine the 40 eligible vehicles and starting positions for the two Heats, with the fastest qualifier receiving the Coors Light Pole Award. Odd-numbered qualifiers (1st, 3rd, 5th, etc.) will start in the first Heat in respective order, while even-numbered qualifiers (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc.) will start the second Heat in respective order.
The two Heats will set the starting positions for the Main, with the top two NASCAR XFINITY Series championship points-earning drivers in each Heat becoming eligible for the Dash 4 Cash bonus. Of the four eligible Dash 4 Cash drivers, the highest-finishing driver in the Main will be awarded a $100,000 bonus.
Arch Day Sponsorship:
The No. 24 Toyota will sport the colors of a new sponsor for the second consecutive week in Bristol as Architectural Daylighting (Arch Day) joins the program. Headquartered in Medina, Ohio, Architectural Daylighting, LLC is your source for Skylights, Canopies, Vertical Wall Systems, and Solar Shading Devices (Light Shelves) utilizing polycarbonate panels for the glazing infill.
