AUSTIN, TX — Less than a week remains until the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America roars to life at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) on Tuesday, April 26.

The sophomore season opener for the miniseries coincides with the 2022 lid lifter at the famed Ohio oval. The upcoming season marks the 69th for “The World’s Greatest Dirt Track.”

Fresh off a hit debut campaign in 2021, the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America is ready to hit the ground running this year with 12 events at 12 different tracks in seven states.

The Eldora Speedway purse, which surpasses the $67,000 mark, includes a $22,022-to-win and $1,000-to-start main event payout.

“What better way to start our upcoming season than to do it as such a legendary place as Eldora (Speedway). We’re grateful for Tony Stewart and everyone at the ‘Big E’ for having us. Not only will it be a great way to start our year, but it will also serve as a great tune-up session for drivers in advance of the upcoming Eldora Million in June,” miniseries general manager, Ben Shelton shared.

In addition to drivers who are looking to begin their pursuit of the $75,000 potential championship check with Castrol® FloRacing Night in America, a strong cast of competitors are expected to not only chase the night’s big payday but also prepare for The Eldora Million, which makes its coveted return on June 8-9. The second running of The Eldora Million posts a whopping $1,002,022 top prize and $5,022 just to qualify for the mega finale.

On Tuesday, April 26 the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America Super Late Models will be joined on the program by a complete program for the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds and Eldora Stocks.
