There are 36 Trucks on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series entry list for this Wednesday's Inaugural Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway. The first dirt track race in a NASCAR national series since 1970 will have 30 of the trucks in the main event race meaning qualifying will take on extra importance this week.
Normally 25 drivers are locked into the starting grid at a normal Truck Series race but for this event only the top 20 teams in owner points will be locked in. Those 20 drivers are Ty Dillon, Jeb Burton, John Wes Townley, Ron Hornaday Jr, Tracy Hines, Timothy Peters, Joey Coulter, Dave Blaney, Ryan Blaney, James Buescher, Miguel Paludo, Austin Dillon, Scott Bloomquist, Darrell Wallace Jr, Dakoda Armstrong, Brendan Gaughan, German Quiroga, Kenny Wallace, Matt Crafton, and Johnny Sauter.
That leaves 16 drivers for the ten open spots. Normal two-lap qualifying starting at 5 p.m. ET will determine the starting positions in the five heat races.
