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 hosts the biggest events in short-track racing including the Dirt Late
Model Dream, Kings Royal, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and World 100.
