(ELDORA MILLION/KINGS ROYAL WEEK EVENTS: Deadline for credential requests is Friday, June 30th)

Thank you for your interest in media credentials at Eldora Speedway. As we enter our 70th season, we appreciate your professional coverage of our events.

Coverage of Eldora Speedway events and activities by accredited media is welcomed and encouraged. We kindly ask that all requests be submitted no later than ONE WEEK prior to the first day of an event weekend. Please do not submit more than one request per media outlet for any one event.  There is a designated area at the bottom of the page to list all individuals who will require credentialed access.

Photographers are required to wear Eldora-issued vests at all times. These will be made available at the credential booth outside of Turn 3.

“Go-Pros” or any type of on-board camera cannot be attached to any fence outside or inside of the racetrack or on any moving vehicle without permission from Jerry Gappens, general manager of Eldora. This request must be made one week before the event and we will make contact to discuss.  Note that OEM plastic mounts are not permitted by Eldora’s insurance regulations.

Drones are not permitted in the airspace above Eldora Speedway, other than those pre-approved for the live broadcast.

Media members granted credentials will be required to upload copies of their work via a special Dropbox Request portal. This upload process is free of charge for the end user and likely the easiest and quickest way to submit photo and video work . It can all be done within an internet browser window and a Dropbox account is not required. An email containing a special upload link will go out to media members leading up to each event.

The infield media center is open for each event on the schedule. It will contain password-protected wifi, high-def television and scoring monitors.

Thank you for your continued support of all short track racing!
