Conley Remains Red Hot at Atomic Speedway; Heads Back to Eldora
for World 100!
(October 11, 2018)
"Hot Rod" Conley captured his eighth
main event win of the 2018 campaign on Saturday night, October
6 at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio! After winning his heat race,
Rod led each of the feature laps to claim the $2,000 payday ahead
of Matt Irey, Chris Shannon, Mark Frazier, and Kyle Thomas. Each
of Rod's eight victories this season has taken place at the former
Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Delmas Conley placed second in
his heat race and later started fifth on the grid in the A-Main.
After getting run off the track and falling to the tail of the
feature field, Delmas rallied all the way back inside of the
top ten and eventually notched a solid sixth place performance.

can be viewed online at www.atomicspeedway.net.
Rod and his #71r team will now make a return trip to the hallowed
high-banks of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on October 12-13
for the remainder of the 48th edition of the fabled 'World 100.'
The Wheelersburg, Ohio ace unfortunately missed out on advancing
into his Twin 25 back on Thursday, September 6 before inclement
weather postponed the final two nights of racing action at the
"Big E." Things will pick up right where they left
off on Friday, October 12 with a pair of Twin 25s - each of
which will boast a $10,000 top prize. Combined points from the
two prelim nights will set the lineup for Saturday's traditional
six heat races.
Following the heat races on Saturday, October 13 at the 1/2-mile
speedplant, two consolation races will finalize the starting
field for the 48th Annual 'World 100.' A large crowd is expected
to file into Eldora Speedway to witness the 100-lap crown jewel
spectacular, which is set to pay a hefty $51,000 to the winner.
Rod has made one career start in the "Biggest Dirt Race
in the World," as he finished eleventh in the 1997 edition
of the 'World 100.' Learn more about this weekend's festivities
