Dirt Track World Champ. Returns To Time Trial Format

Promoter Carl Short recently announced that the 39th edition of the Dirt Track World Championship—set for October 18-19 at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio—will return to a Time Trial format for Super Late Models.
 
Since 2015, a double-heat race format with a passing-points system has transferred drivers into the main event. This year, Friday night will include Time Trials and a single set of 15-lap heat races with a six-car invert. Competitors will earn points based on Time Trials and heat race finishing results. The total points accumulated by a specific driver will be added together to create Saturday's B-Main and A-Main lineups.
 
Saturday's on-track action for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will include B-Mains, followed by a non-qualifier race where the winner has the choice of keeping their $3,000 winnings or forfeiting their earnings to start tail of the main event. The 100-lap Dirt Track World Championship finale will cap off the weekend.
