Eldora Speedway Race Circuit


Eldora Speedway from overhead

Eldora Speedway, also known as The Big E, is located near Rossburg, Ohio. Eldora is a half-mile clay oval with an estimated seating capacity of nearly 20,000. It hosts such races as "The King's Royal," "The Mopar Million," "The Dream," and "The World 100." The World 100 annually attracts over 200 dirt late-model racers.

NASCAR driver Tony Stewart purchased the speedway in late 2004 from Earl Baltes, who built the speedway from the ground up in 1954. Stewart hired promoter Larry Kemp to head the day-to-day operations at the circuit.

A new Daktronics LED scoreboard and billboards were added off Turn Two, to be more visible against the setting sun. Additional catchfencing and a new caution light systems were added for safety. Stewart said he hoped to add a large-screen video board instead of the standard scoreboard.

They also added "Prelude to the Dream", a new late-model Nextel-sponsored race with visiting Nextel Cup stars.

Stewart has indicated that he intends to keep the spirit of what Earl started over 50 years ago and plans to make incremental improvements to accommodate fans attending the speedway.
