Kings Royal Week

July 14-15-16-17, 2021

There will be TWO Kings Royals in 2021 and each will pay $175,000-to-win!

Yes, you read that correctly. TWO Kings Royals will take place in 2021 at Eldora! Each Kings Royal will be paired with one preliminary night of racing. The “Jokers Wild” will move to Wednesday and kickoff the week of racing. The 2021 (38th) Kings Royal will take place on Thursday. The “Knight Before” will retain its usual Friday slot and the 2020 (37th) Kings Royal will take place on Saturday.

Patron accounts with tickets to the 37th Kings Royal will be given the opportunity to renew their same seats for the 38th Kings Royal scheduled for Thursday, July 15, 2021 prior to tickets and campsites resuming public sale. There will not be an “Add & Exchange” period.

One camping reservation is good for the entire 2021 Kings Royal event week. Reserved campsites that were purchased for the 2020 Kings Royal event week in Eldora-owned and/or operated lots will be good for the entire 2021 Kings Royal event week. Any remaining campsites will go on-sale when public sale resumes.

Eldora Speedway’s longtime ticketing platform was purchased by Etix in October 2019. We are in the final stages of migrating all patron accounts, events and ticketing to the Etix platform for 2021.

Once complete, Eldora will contact those patron accounts which made the original 2020 event orders.


(DATE OF UPDATE: NOV 25, 2020)
The “First Knight” of the 2020 Kings Royal, scheduled for Wed., July 15, 2020 and featuring the World of Outlaws and USAC National Sprint Cars, will not be rescheduled.

Patron accounts will be emailed next week with details and instructions on how to receive:

1) an account credit towards 2021 Eldora event tickets, campsites, and/or pit passes (if available); or

2) a refund to their original form of payment.

Either option will be for the full-face value of tickets, campsites, and/or pit passes purchased for the 2020 First Knight event.

(DATE OF UPDATE: DEC 17, 2020)
The credit/refund window is now closed. Any First Knight / Pit Pass orders that did not respond will automatically receive a full credit for those tickets/passes in their ticket account for use at any 2021 event(s).
