ROSSBURG, Ohio – Unrelenting rain showers and unseasonably cool temperatures have worked against the Eldora Speedway track crew and their staunch efforts to produce an ideal racing surface for Saturday’s scheduled test and tune day.
As a result, the session has been canceled.
The Test and Tune cancellation on Eldora’s half-mile clay oval has not affected Sunday’s season opening SpringBuster event for go-karts on the 1/7 mile Little Eldora Speedway, located on the northeast corner of the property. Featuring free general admission, multiple classes of karts are scheduled to take their first green flag at 12:30 p.m.
With the Saturday cancelation, Eldora’s first action on the infamous high-banks has moved to April 12 with the UMP DIRTcar Spring Nationals presented by Allstar Performance. In competition will be the UMP DIRTcar Modified and Late Model divisions with a pair of $5,000 to win feature events are on tap to close out the season-opening night.
Admission gates on April 12 lid-lifter will swing open at 1 p.m. On track action begins at 3 p.m. with practice and time trial sessions, followed by a complete racing program which will take the green flag at 6 p.m.
