NASCAR Truck: schedule, weather outlook for Eldora Speedway


The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series goes dirt-track racing for a rare mid-week race, Wednesday night’s Eldora Dirt Derby at Eldora Speedway in Rossbuhg, Ohio. In addition to a different surface, the format, especially when it comes to qualifying, will be strikingly different, more similarly resembling a traditional dirt-track format.

Wednesday’s on-track activity will begin with single-vehicle, two-lap qualifying. The pole for the main event, the Dirt Derby, will be set in that qualifying session, but otherwise, the race starting grid will be set by the finishing orders of a series of qualifying races.

The Eldroa Dirt Derby will be a 150-lap race, split into 40, 50 and 60-lap stages.
