Rossburg,OH — Taking into consideration the escalating travel costs, for fans and racers alike, along with the desire to provide the best racing experience possible, track owner Tony Stewart and his Eldora Speedway staff have announced a slight revision to the previously released entry blank for this year’s 38th annual running of the World 100, September 5 and 6.
Under revision is the ‘one car/one driver’ rule.
Effective with this year’s running of the famed event, all competitors will be afforded the opportunity to use a second car, under specified conditions. This adjustment would open the door for every driver to at least attempt to qualify for the World 100 and give their respective fans the opportunity to see them on the track for a time trial attempt and resulting entry into either a Friday night non-qualifying event or Saturday qualifying heat race.
Unlike previous years, if a driver crashes during the crucial Friday hot lap session and receives sufficient damage to negate any attempt for a time trial run, he or she can move to a second car. However, the second car must not have been previously on the racing surface that night and must be presented to the tech officials for inspection, and approved, prior to the first round time trial run. There will be no allowance for any additional practice laps prior to that time trial effort.
Entry information for the World 100, considered to be a benchmark in Late Model racing, is available on Eldora’s website, www.eldoraspeedway.com.
