ROSSBURG, OH (April 12) – The heavy rains and severe thunderstorms that saturated the Eldora Speedway grounds and caused localized flooding in neighboring areas have forced a cancellation of Saturday’s (April 13) planned 60th Season Opener at Eldora Speedway.

With the cancellation, Eldora will now kick off the season on Saturday, April 20 with the United States Auto Club (USAC) National Sprint Cars in a tripleheader program that will also feature the UMP DIRTcar Modifieds and Eldora Stock Cars.

Complete event and advance ticket purchase information for that Saturday’s opening event, along with the other exciting race events on the 2013 Eldora calendar, is available on the track’s website www.EldoraSpeedway.com.  Race fans and race teams can get behind-the-scenes access by following @EldoraSpeedway on Twitter, hitting ‘Like’ at Facebook.com/EldoraSpeedway and view video highlights at YouTube.com/EldoraSpeedwayInc.  The new Eldora Speedway app for the iPhone, iPad and Android is now available for download via iTunes and Google Play.
