Eldora Sets $1 Million Sprint Car Race

ROSSBURG, Ohio — Eldora Speedway owner Tony Stewart announced Wednesday that winged sprint cars will race for the richest purse in sprint car history as his legendary, half-mile dirt oval will host its third version of the Eldora Million July 12-13. “All of us at Eldora are super excited to host the first $1 milllion-to-win sprint car race,” said Stewart. While it’s the first sprint car race to pay to seven figures, it will become the 17th sprint car race at Eldora to pay at least six figures (12 Historical Big Ones, 3 King Royals, 1 Mopar Million). It will be the 48th overall race at Eldora to pay at least six figures when including late model events. In a format that is unique to sprint car events, The Eldora Million will feature a full racing program that culminates with the $1,002,023-to-win feature.
