Three of the best up-and-coming drivers on the Sprint Cup circuit will take part in the second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Eldora (Ohio) Speedway next Wednesday.

According to an official entry list from NASCAR, defending race winner – and Sprint Cup rookie this season – Austin Dillon will be on hand to defend his title in the second MudSummer Classic at the legendary southwest Ohio dirt track.

Dillon will be driving the No. 2 truck, while younger brother Ty will be driving the No. 3 truck.

Other Cup regulars in the field include Sprint Cup rookie Michael Annett (driving the No. 14) and potential rookie of the year, Kyle Larson (will drive the No. 32).

Veteran racer Ken Schrader will also be in the field, driving the No. 00.

Last year’s inaugural event marked the first time in over 40 years that NASCAR had held a race on dirt. Not only did Eldora set a attendance record, TV ratings also spiked for the historic event.

This year’s race will be Wednesday, July 23, televised live at 9 pm ET on Fox Sports 1.

    Dillon kicked some butt last year. In dirt track racing the driver still means more than the car. Unlike the cookie cutter paved track where the car means a lot more than the driver
