A month ago Chase Briscoe did not even think he would get the chance to race in the 2018 Eldora Dirt Derby at Eldora Speedway. "I just went and bought my own dirt vehicle, just bought my own modified and went and raced, oh, 12, 15 races a year ago and put a lot of focus on it".
"It certainly means a lot to me to win here", Briscoe said. There are also track commitments to consider, which is the very reason the Cup Series schedule doesn't change much from year to year right now.
Stewart suggested in a radio interview Tuesday that NASCAR schedule a Cup or Xfinity Series race at Eldora Speedway, the half-mile dirt track he owns near Rossburg, Ohio. "I think we'll be OK this weekend". "But at the same time, I don't know, I think we are fine not going there". "That was the most determined I have ever driven".
Back in April, Preece scored his second victory, this time in a Dash 4 Cash race at Bristol.
With 15 trucks staying on the track to gain track position, Briscoe and Enfinger, started the final segment in 15th and 16th respectively. "They're ready for a Cup race".
"I thought we were done", Briscoe said. "We've proven that the Truck drivers that have never been on dirt before can sit there and get around this track really well". You don't have to bring your best aerodynamic vehicle. Briscoe retook the lead on a restart following a lap 137 caution that came out on lap 137.
"Not sure what I could have done different", Seavey said. "I don't know [if it will happen]".
With NASCAR rules requiring a green-white-checkered flag finish, Briscoe and Enfinger lined up side-by-side for the two-lap shootout for the famed golden shovel. "It would just end up being a pavement race".

"The teams are getting more used to it", Stewart said.
"That's some of the things that I worry about". 'Yeah, I'm going to make it Cup racing. Of the 267 laps around the four-turn, 1.5-mile (2.414-kilometer) Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky, he led 174 of them.
We mentioned guys like Friesen and Crafton earlier. "Why shouldn't the dirt guys have a race here too?"
"Absolutely", the 2018 Eldora Dirt Derby victor Chase Briscoe stated from the media center after the event.

Series points leader Johnny Sauter finished 16th.
So, when's the test of Cup cars at Eldora? Completing the top 10 were Tony Anderson, Dean Pitts, Nick Bowers, Andy Welch and Rob Trent.
Douglas held on to finish runner-up over Paul Pardo, Craig Swartz and Daniel Sanchez. The UMP Modifieds and the Eldora Stock Cars will both be in action.
