NASCAR Reveals Eldora Truck Format

NASCAR has announced the format for the inaugural Mudsummer Classic NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway in Ohio.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR announced today the qualifying and race procedures for the inaugural “Mudsummer Classic” – the highly anticipated NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway on July 24.

Unlike asphalt tracks, dirt tracks have historically used a format much different than typical races and that will be the case for this event, the first NASCAR national series race held on dirt in more than 40 years.

The race will feature a traditional two-lap qualifying session, five qualifying races, one last-chance race and a champion’s provisional to determine the 30-truck starting field. The top-20 in owners’ points entering the race event will have a guaranteed starting position.

Here are additional details for each round of qualifying:


– Two-lap qualifying determines starting position for the qualifying races

Qualifying Races

– Five qualifying races. Eight laps each; only green flag laps count.

– Five trucks transfer from each qualifying race

– Lineup for the qualifying races will be based on qualifying speeds with four locked-in trucks (trucks in the top 20)

– The top-five trucks in qualifying will start on the pole for their respective qualifying race

– Highest finishing non-locked-in truck will transfer to race from each qualifying race

– At the completion of the qualifying races, 25 trucks will have earned spots into the feature.

Last Chance Race

– 15 laps; only green flag laps count

– The top-four finishers will transfer to the feature and start in positions 26-29

– The lineup will be based on the finish from the qualifying races
