World 100 Start Money Boosted To $3,000

Eldora Speedway's richest World 100 purses in history will pay $3,000-to-start for the first time at next week's 51st and 50th World 100s at the Tony Stewart-owned oval in Rossburg, Ohio.

The $3,000 payout for last place — up from $2,500 from the previous World 100 in 2019 — matches the richest Dirt Late Model start money in track history from the 2001 Eldora Million.

According to the entry form released for Sept. 8-11 action, finishers 12th-28th all get purse bumps from the race's 2019 version with the total purses from 51st race ($54,000-to-win from a $194,625 race purse) and 50th race ($53,000-to-win from a $193,625 race purse) an upgrade of $4,025 and $5,025 from two seasons ago.

Total prize money available for both races is $763,300 as Eldora, like the track did with June's Dreams, runs back-to-back World 100s to make up for 2020's pandemic-postponed season when fans weren't allowed at the racetrack for the replacement Intercontinental Classic. Next week's action includes Wednesday and Friday preliminary nights with twin $10,000-to-win programs setting up the Thursday and Saturday finales.

Despite next week's events being more lucrative, the World 100's starting fields have been reduced to 28 cars, down from the 30- or 32-car fields for the event since 2010.
