Notes: Eldora’s Intercontinental Classic is an invitation-only event open to 44 invited drivers and four drivers selected through an online fan vote. … The event replaces the 50th World 100, which has been rescheduled for September 2021 due to coronavirus-related restrictions on large crowds. … Drivers invited included national stars Scott Bloomquist, Billy Moyer, Jimmy Owens, Brandon Sheppard, Jonathan Davenport and Brandon Overton among others. … The two most prolific Eldora winners are Mooresburg, Tenn.'s Bloomquist, who leads all drivers with eight Dream victories, and Moyer, of Batesville, Ark., who tops the World 100 list with six triumphs. ... Moyer, however, has indicated that he will likely skip the Intercontinental Classic due to a death in the family. … The Intercontinental Classic follows the same format as June’s Dirt Late Model Stream, which was the first Late Model race at Eldora this season following a nationwide shutdown due to Covid-19 pandemic concerns. … Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., won the Dirt Late Model Stream, adding to his 2018 World 100 triumph. … The 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 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 rows will be lined up 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 heats 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. … 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 will not 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.
