It’s the Biggest Dirt Race in the World! Entering its 52nd running, the World 100 is rich in Dirt Late Model History.
There’s so much history in fact, it won’t all fit on this page! Click the link below to see a complete rundown of finishes and other statistical information from the 51-year history of the World 100…

Everyone arrives at different times throughout the week but most leave at the same time after the race. As such, parking lots and roadways can be congested. To help alleviate congestion, local authorities will be initiating a post-race traffic pattern that will get the lots emptied quicker.
Please look at the map below (click it for a printable version). Each lot will exit in a specific direction. If you find yourself going in the opposite direction that you need to be going, check out a local map of the area roads. Many roads and highways in this area are square mile blocks so getting yourself pointed in the right direction should be a breeze.
The Dirt Late Model Dream was halted by rain in June with 14 laps complete in the A-Feature. The remaining 86 laps will be contested on Wednesday, September 7th. That will now be lead in to the World 100 weekend, which runs September 8th-10th.
Along with those Dirt Late Model Dream laps, a unique event will be added to the card on September 7 that is open only to drivers that fit the following criteria: A)they have never won a Late Model A-Feature at Eldora, and B)they are not one of the 24 cars in the Dirt Late Model Dream Feature.
This program, known as ‘Chasing the Dream’ will consist of only A-Feature events. Drivers will participate in timed hot laps with the results of those timed laps being used to lineup the A-Features. All drivers will run an A-Feature and we’ll run as many as the car count dictates.
Each Chasing the Dream A-Feature will carry a payout as follows: 1st) $5,000; 2nd) 2,500; 3rd) 1,500; 4th) 1,250; 5th) 1,000; 6th) 950; 7th) 900; 8th) 850; 9th) 800; 10th) 750; 11th) 725; 12th) 700; 13th) 675; 14th) 650; 15th) 625; 16th) 600; 17th) 600; 18th) 600; 19th) 600; 20th) 600; 21st) 600; 22nd) 600; 23rd) 600; 24th) 600
All tickets and pit passes that were valid for entry on Saturday, June 11 will be valid for entry on Wednesday, September 7. Patrons who were not at the Dream but want to attend the September 7 event will have the opportunity to purchase new tickets (info below). FloRacing will provide live video coverage throughout the entire four-day stretch of racing action, including the newly announced Chasing the Dream program.
