ROSSBURG, Ohio (Feb. 6, 2015) – The renewals were strong for Eldora’s “Big Four” races and at 10 am (EST) on Monday, Feb 9 fans can purchase tickets, suites and select campsites for all 25 racing events at the legendary half-mile dirt oval. All orders can be placed at www.EldoraSpeedway.com, by phone at (937) 338-3815 or at the box office at the race track.
Since early December, the ticketing department has been filling orders for the time-honored major events; 21st annual Dirt Late Model Dream presented by Ferris Mowers (June 4-5-6), 32nd annual Kings Royal (July 17 and 18), 3rd Annual 1-800-Car-Cash Mud Summer Classic for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (July 22) and 45th annual World 100 (September 10-11-12) at a record pace. That tempo will pick up starting at 10 a.m., on Monday, as tickets for the balance of the highly-anticipated season become available, with no increase in pricing from 2014.
As always, online is the best and easiest way to order tickets for all events.
“We always want fans to take advantage of the proven TicketForce-prepared design for easy and quick purchasing.” said Tess Thwaits, ticket manager and the granddaughter of Eldora founders Earl and Berneice Baltes. “The TicketForce system has been in place for several years and has demonstrated its ability to process a huge volume of orders simultaneously while being extremely user-friendly. We know that some fans prefer to call in, so we will have a full staff of agents in-house and ready to answer the box office hotline of (937) 338-3815 beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday and through our regular business hours. Also the speedway box office will be open for walk-in orders.”
Parity of competition, regardless of division or sanctioning body, became the buzz word in 2014 and that has prompted an unprecedented interest among race fans coming into 2015.
“Our renewals for our four Major Events have been very strong,” said Eldora General Manager Roger Slack. “Now everyone can order those tickets, but also for all of our other special event weekends. From the May 8 and 9 World of Outlaws and USAC National Sprint “#LetsRaceTwo” Doubleheader to our largest fireworks shows in Eldora history at our Family Fun Nights on May 16 and August 16. There really is something for everyone.”
Special events hosting the premier series in dirt racing make up the full race schedule. Fans will witness the stars of the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, UMP DIRTcar Super Late Models and Modifieds, the United States Auto Club’s (USAC) Silver Crown, National Sprint Car Series and National Midget Car Series, the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions and the United States Hot Rod Association’s (US Hot Rod) Monster Jam series. Also, Eldora’s Modified and Stock divisions will be contesting their season championship from April through October.
