With the 66-car field divided into three groups, Ivey locked into the 14th-starting position for his prelim via his time trial effort. Inching forward three spots in the 20-lap affair, Trent crossed the line in 11th.
On Thursday evening with the World 100 weekend officially getting underway with a pair of prelims, Trent's third-place finish in his heat positioned him on the sixth row for his feature. With $12,000 on the line, Trent logged a 16th-place outing in the 25-lap affair.
For Friday's preliminary night, Ivey fell short of a transfer spot in his heat race and B-Main, ending his evening early.
With preliminary points from Thursday and Friday positioning him seventh on the starting grid for his heat race on Saturday, Trent recorded a seventh-place finish, giving him one last shot at the $55,000-to-win World 100 with a B-Main appearance. Needing to place fourth or better, Ivey came short of a transfer position with a 12th-place outing.
