Mike Benedum begins 2021 season at Eldora Speedway
Making his first start of the 2021 season, Mike Benedum traveled to Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) on Thursday afternoon for the double Dreams weekend. With preliminary results already completed on Wednesday, Benedum would have to roll off on the tail off his heat on Thursday evening. Failing to place third or better in his heat, Mike transferred into the B-Main for another shot at the $127,000-to-win Dirt Late Model Dream. Slated to start near the tail, Benedum elected to scratch and save equipment for the remainder of the weekend. (Josh James Artwork)

Rolling off ninth in his heat race on Saturday, Benedum came in seventh, giving him one final shot at the $126,000-to-win Dirt Late Model Dream with a B-Main appearance. Locking in the Top 3, Mike logged a 12th-place outing.Back to News
