(Redirected from Southern Illinois 100)

The Performance Seed Dirt Double (formerly the Southern Illinois 100 and the Rust-Oleum Automotive Finishes 100) is an ARCA Menards Series stock car race held annually on the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds Racetrack during the DuQuoin State Fair on Labor Day weekend.

Race history[edit]

The first 100-mile stock car race at the track was held in 1950. It has been a part of a national stock car circuit annually since 1954. AAA sanctioned the race until 1955, USAC from 1956 to 1984, and ARCA took over solely in 1985 after co-sanctioning the race in 1983 and 1984.

In the 2000s and 2010s, the race saw participation from NASCAR Cup Series regulars Tony Stewart and Ken Schrader. Stewart won the race in 2003, and Schrader was victorious in 2006, 2007, and 2013.

Starting in 2022, ARCA would offer a $20,000 bonus if a driver were to win this race and the other dirt race at the Illinois State Fairgrounds Racetrack. No driver has won it in both years of it being offered. This bonus is sponsored by Performance Seed,[1] which also became the title sponsor of the race in 2024.[2]
