Notes: The Dirt Late Model Stream Invitational is an invitation-only event open to 44 invited drivers and four drivers selected (from a pool of 25) through an online fan vote. … The event replaces the 26th Dream, which has been rescheduled for June 2021. … Drivers invited included national stars Scott Bloomquist, Billy Moyer, Jimmy Owens, Brandon Sheppard, Jonathan Davenport and Brandon Overton among others. … Bloomquist, of Mooresburg, Tenn., leads all drivers with eight Dream victories, while Moyer, of Batesville, Ark., tops the list with six World 100 triumphs. … The Dirt Late Model Stream is the first Late Model race at Eldora this season following a nationwide shutdown due to Covid-19 concerns. … There will be no cash transactions at the facility. All transactions will be via credit or debit card. … Masks will be required all weekend. … Concessions stands won't be open. … There will be no grandstand entrances open as the event is a fan-free event. … Participants are reminded to follow CDC social distancing recommendations. … Eldora’s posted $205,075 in prize money over the three days of competition includes winnings from Saturday’s 67-lap finale (to commemorate Eldora’s 67th season), two preliminary features and consolations all three days. … The winner’s share is $50,000. … To set Saturday’s heat race lineups, drivers earn points through their time trials, heats and features on Thursday and Friday; combined Thursday-Friday points determine Saturday’s heats. … Provisionals for Saturday’s ninth row will be based on accrued preliminary points rather than qualifying times. … For Thursday and Friday preliminary nights — each featuring a $10,000-to-win program — there will be four heats, with the top four finishers from each heat advancing to the feature. The top two finishers then get their qualifying times back. The first three preliminary feature rows will be inverted by the six fastest qualifying times, while the fourth row will be the seventh- and eighth-fastest qualifying time. The two fastest qualifiers who do not advance from heat will start in positions 17 and 18, with the remaining spots filled through consolation races. … Drivers are required to use a Hoosier LM-20 on the left front, right front and left rear. They may use an LM-20 or Hoosier LM-40 on the right rear. Grooving and siping is allowed.
