    There are only four Crown Jewels. The World 100, the Dream 100, the North/South 100, and the Dirt Track World Championship.

    If you can't answer the question don't reply. I posed the question after they talked about it yesterday on Dirt On Dirt when previewing the upcoming Dirt Track World Championship this coming weekend.

    Who made you the King of 4m?
    Maybe you should just stick to USA dirt/forum

    I personally agree with 4Barrell- there are not 10 Crown Jewels. A big/popular race doesn’t make it a Crown Jewel!

    Your Welcome!

    I definitely agree with Fox. There’s not 10 Crown Jewels, however my list is what I think are the 10 biggest DLM races.

    Fox I agree with you as well. There really only about 4 that belong in that discussion. But When I thought about what the 10 biggest events where that is the list I've come up with in order.

    I’ve posted this before but everyone seems to ignore facts and want to create their own reality.

    Crown jewel, by definition, is singular

    You cannot have more than 1 crown jewel, that is a fact

    This thread should not be called the top 10 Crown Jewels. That sentence is an oxymoron

    If you’re going to call it a crown jewel then there can only be one. Year people come here and post their top 10 crown jewels and it’s just effen hilarious.

    The crown jewel of dirt late models is the dang World 100. I’ve never been to the race and have no ties to Eldora but what I just stated is fact by definition. You can’t just create your own meanings of words. This thread is a list of the top 10 races in a certain internet posters opinion.

    I’m sure there will still be hundreds of posts after this one about the top 10 “Crown Jewels” lol

    No one made him the "King of 4m" but he's the one who started this thread and I see that as having the right question another person's opinion like he did.

    What's not to love about a sport that has 12 - 15 crown jewel events per year.

    1. World 100
    2. DTWC
    3. Dream
    4. USA Nationals
    5. Knoxville Late Model Nationals
    6. Silver Dollar Nationals
    7. Firecracker 100
    8. Show Me 100 (would be higher if it was still at West Plains. The Show Me at Wheatland doesn’t have the atmosphere or the electricity it had at West Plains!)
    9. North South 100
    10. Prairie Dirt Classic

    I don’t believe the Topless 100 is in the top 10 because it doesn’t draw cars... and I believe Lucas sanctioning has hurt that race.
