Tripleheader Program Falls Victim to Rain; Craig Captures Stock Car Title

ROSSBURG, OH (Oct. 13) – Persistent rain showers and the threat of additional precipitation in the immediate area forced the cancellation of the UNOH (University of Northwestern Ohio) Sprintacular on Saturday. The show featuring the All Star Sprints, NRA (National Racing Alliance) Sprint Invaders and the Eldora Stock Cars in a triple-header program will not be rescheduled.

Guests who purchased tickets or pit passes may use the full value toward a ticket or pit pass for the Blue Collar Bash on Oct. 26-28. For guests unable to return for that event, they are asked to return their full ticket or full pit pass wristband and a self-addressed, self-stamped envelope by November 12 to: Eldora Speedway, 13929 State Route 118, New Weston OH 45348, ATTN: Sprintacular.

A refund of the ticket or pit pass will be issued via the same method it was purchased within 30 days. Tickets purchased by credit card will have credit re-issued to that card. Tickets purchased by cash will be refunded by check.

Fans who purchased the streaming pay-per-view broadcast of the event will receive credit via the same method of payment.

The Eldora Stocks points championship was to be decided at the Sprintacular. With the cancellation, Barney Craig won his fourth track title with a six-point victory over Shawn Phillipi, 322 to 316. Earnie Woodard (305), Rob Trent (293) and Dean Pitts (292) rounded out the top five. The points are unofficial until an official audit.
