    Eldora Speedway, one of the nation’s premier dirt tracks, won’t be part of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule in 2021.
    While NASCAR has not yet revealed the full calendar, Eldora ticket-holders have been informed of the news in a letter from track general manager Roger Slack.
    “We had a great seven-year run that ushered in many firsts for NASCAR, namely heat races, last-chance qualifiers, four-wide salutes and stage racing,” Slack said in the letter.
    “Rising stars and dirt-racing specialists ensured we never had a repeat winner and that all winners came from various racing backgrounds, from dirt and asphalt to open wheel and stock cars.”
    The half-mile track in Rossburg, Ohio – owned by NASCAR Hall of Famer Tony Stewart – held the Eldora Dirt Derby from 2013-2019.
    At the time, it was the lone NASCAR national series event held on dirt. The NASCAR Cup Series will have its first dirt race since 1970 at Bristol Motor Speedway next March.
    This year’s Dirt Derby was canceled because of COVID-19 restrictions on mass gatherings.
    Cup Series veterans Austin Dillon (2013), Bubba Wallace (2014), Christopher Bell (2015) and Kyle Larson (2016) are among the past winners of the event, as well as incoming Cup rookie Chase Briscoe (2018).
    Stewart Friesen earned his first career Truck Series victory in the 2019 event, which will go down as the last.

    :sad:I’m shocked at the news. Thought this would be a mainstay for the Trucks.

    My heart sank a little when I got the email yesterday. It wasn't fully unexpected since it appears the Eldora Speedway twitter account had unfollowed the NASCAR and truck series twitter accounts. Still sucks big time. That is the one race I had gone to every year since 2013 through 2019 (and would have been there this year had COVID not messed everything up). I am debating on getting a refund or seeing about making the switch to the Kings Royal or World 100.

    Well, at least they swapped it to a pretty cool equivalent. Knoxville is pretty cool. Kind of surprised to see Eldora go, but, all is not lost. And happy for the truck guys there's going to be another dirt to justify having that one truck sit around all year for 1 race.

    I'm assuming eldora is gone because Stewart is starting his own race series?

    I hate to see this race go but I am really excited to see Knoxville on the schedule.

    Maybe it will be back if the Bristol experiment fails to produce
