Increased traffic around Eldora


ROSSBURG – Eldora Speedway’s first marquee event of the 2019 season, the 25th running of the Dirt Late Model Dream, began Thursday night and culminates with Saturday’s finale and $125,000-to-win feature event.

Eldora Speedway officials indicate an armada of recreational vehicles and race haulers are headed to the high-banked dirt oval located at 13929 State Route 118, New Weston.

Advance sales indicate fans coming from 37 states, Australia, Canada and New Zealand already have their tickets in hand. Additionally, the pre-entry roster is at its highest level in years with at least 86 team haulers from 20 states plus Australia and three Canadian provinces loaded up and headed for Darke County.

Area commuters and attendees should prepare now for increased vehicular traffic in and around the area. As well as pedestrians crossing State Route 118 to and from the campgrounds to the Speedway. The ODOT advisory and message boards usually in place for the event have been assigned to the ongoing tornado recovery efforts in the Dayton-region.
