About Eldora Speedway:
Since carved from a cornfield in the natural amphitheater that existed between the Eldora Ballroom and the Wabash River by bandleader Earl Baltes in 1954, Eldora Speedway has grown to be a frontrunner in motorsports growth and stability. Baltes chose to sell the legendary high-banked clay oval to motorsports entrepreneur and NASCAR, IndyCar and USAC champion Tony Stewart in 2004. Eldora celebrates its 66th consecutive season of racing in 2019 featuring the biggest events in short-track racing, including: the 25th running of the Dirt Late Model Dream Weekend on June 6th-7th-8th; the 36th Kings Royal Weekend on July 18th-19th-20th; the only NASCAR National Series event on dirt – the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series Eldora Dirt Derby on Thursday, August 1st; the 49th Annual World 100 Weekend on September 5th-6th-7th; and the historic 4-Crown Nationals on September 27th and 28th.
