Event Name: 1st Annual Dash4Cash
Event Location: 360 Raceway V2 in New Rochelle, NY
Event Date(s): January 7, 2012 to January 8, 2012


Keven Hébert provided the following report: 
 
360 Raceway V2 in New Rochelle, NY hosted the 1st Annual Dash4Cash the weekend of January 7-8. A full field of over 120 entries meant that the competition would be fierce.
 
The format consisted of practice on Saturday with three qualifying rounds and the main events on Sunday.  In Expert Touring Car, I was able to TQ each round of qualifying, which meant that I would start the main event on pole in front of Mike Haynes, Robbie Dodge, and Jason Schreffler.  Qualifying was extremely tight, with the entire main separated by less than 10 seconds. There were some great battles throughout the weekend!
 
At the start of the main, I was able to maintain a small gap to Haynes as we pulled away from the rest of the field. Although he was able to stay close, a mistake at the 3-minute mark allowed me to keep a comfortable lead for the remainder of the race and bring home the win. Haynes held on for second, with Robbie Dodge rounding out the podium.
