Notes: The race is the richest in Dirt Late Model racing. … Scott Bloomquist (six), Billy Moyer (two) and Freddy Smith (two) have multiple victories, but no driver has won the event back-to-back. … This marks the second season with three nights of racing and double features on Thursday and Friday. … Drivers use the best of their four time trial laps (two apiece from Thursday and Friday) to set Saturday’s six heat race lineups. ... Saturday’s program remains mostly traditional with consolation races along with two consolation “scrambles” among drivers who fail to transfer (in previous years, the race has used format including a C-main and B-main). … Four provisionals are part of the 28-car field; the two fastest qualifiers not transferring through heat races will make up the 10th row of the feature lineup while the 14th row will be made up of drivers with the best averages finishes from Thursday’s and Friday’s preliminary features (ties broken by qualifying time). … UMP DIRTcar points are awarded to all drivers throughout the weekend. … Eldora has hosted two Late Model races this season with Bobby Pierce of Oakwood, Ill., and Matt Miller of Waterville, Ohio, grabbing Sunoco American Late Model Series victories. … The raindate for Saturday’s 100-lapper is Sunday.
