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. … The third year of three nights of racing brings some tweaks, most notably that a driver’s combined finished in Thursday and Friday features set heat-race lineups for Saturday. … Also for Thursday-Friday prelims, the draw will set the competitors in time trial-heat groups. … Thursday-Friday heats will be inverted with a system to be announced. … For Saturday’s heat lineups, ties among combined finishes will be broken by (1) best finish from Thursday or Friday, (2) fastest Thursday-Friday qualifying time or (3) entry postmark. … Two provisionals are reserved for the two fastest overall qualifiers from preliminary nights who don’t transfer through a Saturday night heat race. … Saturday’s program includes two consolation races along with two consolation “scrambles” among drivers who fail to transfer. … UMP DIRTcar points are awarded to all drivers throughout the weekend. … Eldora has hosted two Late Model races this season with Rusty Schlenk of Weston, Ohio, and Matt Miller of Whitehouse, Ohio, grabbing Sunoco American Late Model Series victories.
