DALE MCDOWELL QUALIFIES FOR WORLD 100
1September 8th, 2012 - Team Dillon Racing and Dale McDowell traveled to Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) over the weekend for the 42nd Annual World 100 at the famed, 1/2 mile oval. A field of 123 of the nation's best drivers registered for action on Friday night, but Mother Nature would intervene during time trials, and as a result they were reset for Saturday afternoon.

The afternoon session would begin on a high note for the team as Dale blazed to fast time honors. While being presented with fast time honors McDowell spun the inversion wheel and would spin a "4". As a result the top twenty-four qualifiers were inverted for heat race action. After starting fourth in his heat Dale received contact from another competitor, which forced him pitside early in the heat. Luckily he would be able to utilize a fast time provisional to start the 100 lap, $50,000-to-win feature in the 19th position. After not making up much ground during the first half of the main event, McDowell retired on lap 46 to save his equipment. He was creidted with a 23rd place finish.
