ARCA Qualifying Canceled, Jesse Love on Pole at DuQuoin

ARCA Menards Series officials canceled qualifying at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds on Monday (Sept. 5). As a result, the starting lineup was set via owners’ points as per the rulebook. Therefore, Jesse Love will start on the pole.

Series officials also moved the start of the Rust-Oleum Automotive Finishes 100 up an hour to 5 p.m. ET. No on-track action occurred on Sunday after officials postponed the event due to the poor racetrack quality based on previous inclement weather.

Love won the other ARCA dirt track event this year at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. If he wins this event, he will win the $50,000 Performance Seed Dirt Double.
