Eldora's #LetsRaceTwo Postponed; Double Feature To Run On Saturday

Rossburg, Ohio (May 7, 2021)………Extensive rainfall during Friday night’s #LetsRaceTwo program at Eldora Speedway resulted in the track surface on the half-mile dirt oval being unable to be worked into a safe racing condition, necessitating postponement of the conclusion of the event to Saturday, May 8, which will feature double A-Mains for the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship.

On Saturday, pits open at noon ET, with spectator gates opening at 1pm and hot laps at 2:30pm, followed by heat races, prelims and the 30-lap feature from night one.  After a track rework, the night two program will begin approximately an hour following the first feature, then proceed with an entirely new, complete program consisting of hot laps, qualifying, heat races, semi-feature and the second 30-lap feature of the evening.

Cold temperatures in the low 40s dramatically slowed the drying process on Friday night/Saturday morning, which made the bottom half of the racetrack unusable as the event entered the hours of 1 and 2am ET despite extensive effort by the Eldora Speedway track crew.

Fatheadz Eyewear Qualifying for the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars was completed on Friday night with Brady Bacon earning his 39th career fast qualifying time with the series, tying him with Levi Jones for fourth all-time in series history.  Qualifying results will seed the lineups for the heat races beginning at 2:30pm ET on Saturday.

All wristbands from Friday night’s event are valid for Saturday’s resumption of the night one program. At the conclusion of the first feature, the pits and grandstands will be swept and new tickets and new pit passes will be needed for re-entry.
