In the highest levels of NASCAR, where pretty much every track is asphalt, being told to “race cleanly” usually just means “don’t wreck anybody if you can help it.” But when it’s time to run dirt, clean racing is something totally different—basically, bust out your nearest duster and get to it in the middle of the…
A Dirt Late Model driver died from injuries sustained in a crash on Saturday night at Eldora Speedway, a half-mile dirt oval in Ohio. The event continued after the wreck, as the driver was transported to the hospital for severe injuries at the time.
What Eldora giveth, Eldora taketh away. There’s good reason why Eldora Speedway is one of the most notorious dirt tracks in the world. Bobby Pierce briefly took the lead from Kyle Larson during last night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, only to run wide, whack the wall, and end his race.
Your elementary school self was right: playing in the dirt is a lot of fun. And thus, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series kicks up big clouds of soil at Eldora Speedway again, tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET. on FS1. In the meantime, behold the dusty post-apocalyptic truck-scape of yesterday at Eldora.
Major League Baseball decided to assume that their fanbase can’t read or spell and took issue with Eldora Speedway’s use of the name “Mudsummer Classic.” The MLB claimed that the event sounded too close to their “Midsummer Classic,” and Eldora agreed to change it—but not without getting a dig in at MLB first.
Tony Stewart's Eldora Speedway briefly showed this message around 2:00 p.m. Saturday purporting to be from ISIS. The message appeared in place of its usual graphics, complete with irritating autoplay audio of an Arabic song.
Despite a late-minute surge from folks like drag racing champion Cruz Pedregon, who proved quite adept at turning circles at Wednesday night's fourth annual Old Spice Prelude to the Dream charity race at Eldora Speedway, the winner ended up being the man that brought the racers there — Tony Stewart. We're assuming…
...and the Prelude To The Dream race starts at 7:00 PM tonight. We could totally make it down to the Tony Stewart-owned track. And believe us, we seriously thought about taking a run down to the track from Detroit. But frankly after covering it last year, the thought of spending the next week wiping down the dirt from…
