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

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

Sammy Smith, series points leader Nick Sanchez and Daniel Dye will start second through fourth, respectively.

Love’s Venturini Motorsports teammate Corey Heim will start fifth. Heim won the 2021 ARCA event at the Illinois State Fairgrounds.

Rajah Caruth, Greg Van Alst, Venturini driver Toni Breidinger, three-time ARCA DuQuoin victor Ken Schrader and Amber Balcaen round out the starting top 10 in sixth through 10th place, respectively.

21 drivers are entered for the 100 lap race, so none failed to qualify.

The ARCA event at DuQuoin will begin an hour earlier than previously announced at 5 p.m. ET with TV coverage provided by MAVTV Motorsports Network and available on FloRacing.
