3 TITLE HOPEFULS EYE SILVER CROWN FINALE IN "SILVER ANNIVERSARY" 4-CROWN" AT ELDORA

It's down to three possible champions who are chasing the 2005 USAC Weld Racing Silver Crown Championship, which will be decided this weekend in the Silver Anniversary "4-Crown Nationals" at Tony Stewart's Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

Defending champion Dave Steele of Tampa, Fla. has led the standings all season and has a 31-point cushion over Josh Wise of Riverside, Calif., with Brian Tyler of Parma, Mich. 39 back. A victory at Eldora is worth 60 and Steele, who drives for car owners Stewart and Bob East, can lock up the title with a ninth-place finish.

A 50-lap Silver Crown feature concludes Saturday night's action, while preliminaries are slated for Friday night at the 1/2-mile dirt oval. Semi-features and feature events are set for Saturday night and the Silver Crown cars share the billing at the "4-Crown Nationals" with the Valvoline USAC National Sprint Cars, USAC National Midgets and Modifieds.

Dave Darland won last year's "4-Crown Nationals' Silver Crown feature at Eldora.
