Track History

Eldora Speedway is a half-mile dirt racing facility located in western Ohio. The ‘Big E’ is owned by three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Tony Stewart. The Indiana native purchased Eldora from legendary promotor Earl Baltes in 2004. Baltes built Eldora in 1954 and had been the sole owner of the facility from day number one.

Eldora plays host to some of the largest dirt racing events in the country, including the MudSummer Classic NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, Dirt Late Model Dream, Kings Royal, and World 100 – all of which attract over 20,000 spectators on an annual basis.
