With the 124-car field split into two groups for a pair of $12,000-to-win preliminary features, Linville edged his way into the 25-lapper with the fifth-and-final transfer spot in his heat. Losing three positions in the 25-lap affair, Dustin recorded a 22nd-place outing.
Later that night for heat races leading up to the Eldora Million, Linville missed a transfer spot in his heat race with a seventh-place finish, sending him into the B-Main. Needing to place second or better to make the $1,002,022-to-win A-Main, Dustin logged an 11th-place finish.
On Friday as the 28th annual Dirt Late Model Dream got underway with a pair of prelims, Dustin’s fifth-place finish in his heat placed him on the 12th row for the feature. With $12,000 on the line, Linville tagged the wall late in the race that brought an early end to his night.
Slated to start deep in the field in his heat on Saturday night, Linville was a scratch from the 15-lapper.Back to News
