100 Weekend for Dolhun Motorsports at Eldora
9, 2018) Dolhun
Motorsports had planned to unload their #83 machine from September
6-8 at the hallowed high-banks of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio
to vie for the prestigious globe trophy in the 48th Annual 'World
100.' However, with the rainy remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon
postponing Friday and Saturday's action at the "Big E"
until October 12-13, only Thursday night's $10,000 to win Twin 25s
escaped the wrath of Mother Nature. In the wee hours of Friday morning
after a lengthy rain delay, Scott James unfortunately slapped the
wall during his qualifying lap and the damage inflicted to his XR1
Rocket Chassis caused him to scratch from the remainder of the program,
which meant that Scott missed out on his 25-lapper. Complete results
