ROSSBURG, Ohio — The Official Entry Form for the 48th Annual World 100 has been released, officially kicking off Dirt Late Model racing’s annual quest to capture the most-coveted prize in the sport – the famed globe trophy – on Saturday, September 8 at Eldora Speedway.
In addition to continuing the late Earl Baltes’ promise of adding $1,000 every year to the winner’s prize – it will be $51,000 in 2018, additional incentives and increases bump the posted awards to a record $436,800 for the three-day weekend scheduled for Thursday-Friday-Saturday, September 6-7-8.
Jonathan Davenport, a native of Blairsville, Georgia, is the defending champion and a two-time winner of the World 100. In June’s Dirt Late Model Dream, Davenport had a spirited side-by-side battle with rival Scott Bloomquist, of Mooresburg, Tennessee, before suspension woes allowed Bloomquist to cruise to his eighth win in the $100,000-to-win event.
Tickets to all three nights, including reserved seating, are available now at www.EldoraSpeedway.com and by calling the Eldora Speedway box office at (937) 338-3815. Children aged 12 & younger are admitted free to all general admission spectator areas.
