ROSSBURG, Ohio (October 29, 2015) – For competitors, the Eldora Speedway season has taken the final checkered flag but loyal race fans are taking the green flag to renew their tickets and campsites to the 2016 Dirt Late Model Dream, Kings Royal and World 100 Weekends.

Fans can now login to their online accounts, call (937) 338-3815 or visit the Speedway office in person to meet the November 22 deadline in order to renew their 2015 major event seats and campsites. Renewal forms can also be returned by fax or mail.

The 22nd annual Dirt Late Model Dream by Ferris Mowers Weekend (June 9-10-11) will see a significant purse increase on each of its three nights in 2016. Thursday’s Twin 25’s will now pay $5,000-to-win while Friday’s Twin 25’s have been increased to $10,000-to-win each. Saturday’s $100,000-to-win feature has also been bolstered pushing the weekend’s posted purse to a minimum of $350,000.

The 33rd running of the Kings Royal Weekend (July 14-15-16) has been expanded to three full nights of World of Outlaws action. Thursday’s new “Jokers Wild” will precede Friday’s “The Knight Before.” Patrons with Friday night tickets are being offered their same prime seats to Thursday during the renewal process. Patrons will also be able to add the “Jokers Wild” event during the ‘Add and Exchange’ days or public sale date. Eldora officials announced a $100,000 increase to the Kings Royal purse for 2016 earlier this year.

The 46th World 100 Weekend (September 8-9-10) will again receive an additional $1,000 bump to the winner’s purse, a tradition started by Eldora founder, the late Earl Baltes, bringing the champion’s take up to $49,000. Additionally, the Twin 25 Feature events on both Thursday and Friday have been increased to $10,000-to-win with increased paybacks through the field.
