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.
Love’s Venturini Motorsports teammate Corey Heim will start fifth. Heim won the 2021 ARCA event at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.
21 drivers are entered for the 100-lap race, so none failed to qualify.
The green flag for the ARCA event at DuQuoin will fly at 5 p.m. ET with TV coverage provided by MAVTV Motorsports Network and available on FloRacing.
