The competitors of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will put on a rare Wednesday night show and an even rarer performance on dirt this week with the running of the Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Aside from the facts that this week’s racing falls on a Wednesday and the event will be held on dirt, the format will be different, at least when it comes to qualifying. There will be heat races to set the starting lineup for the main event, as opposed to two or three rounds of knock-out qualifying.
Here’s a look at the Eldora schedule (courtesy of NASCAR.com):
