Jeep Van Wormer Closes Out 2018 Campaign
in Rain-Postponed World 100
(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) Iron Motorsports returned to the
famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on October 12-13
for the rain-postponed 'World 100,' which marked the conclusion
of their 2018 campaign. Action was slated to get underway
at the 1/2-mile, high-banked speedplant on Friday evening
with a pair of $10,000 to win Twin 25s, but cold temperatures
and rain showers pushed the prelims back to Saturday afternoon.
Jeep Van Wormer placed fifth in his stacked heat race,
but later scored the victory in his consolation event.
After starting the 25-lap affair from the outside of the
ninth row, Jeep eventually wound up seventeenth in the
At the "Big E" on Saturday night, all eyes
of the 77 returning competitors were fixated on the whopping
$51,000 top prize and the famous globe trophies that were
up for grabs for the winner of the 48th edition of the
'World 100.' Jeep finished tenth in his stacked heat race
and twelfth in his B-Main. Unfortunately, the Pinconning,
Michigan ace was unable to make the start in the 100-lap
crown jewel extravaganza. Full results from the hectic
day/night doubleheader in the Buckeye State can be viewed

With the checkered flag at Eldora, Jeep and his #55 team
will now start the process of refreshing their equipment
during the off-season and start getting ready for 2019.
In a year that saw Jeep enter only 14 events primarily
due to work commitments, he was able to reach victory
lane on two different occasions and record an additional
runner-up performance. Jeep's trio of strong efforts in
2018 came during a three-week stretch from September 15-29
at the dirt-covered Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan,
as he racked up $9,000 in first place prize money plus
second place money in the $6,000 to win Berlin finale.
