Eldora tickets set to go on sale

Staff report

Tickets for the second annual NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Eldora Speedway dirt track go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. Eastern time.

This past year's event, won by Austin Dillon, was NASCAR's first national-series race on dirt in over three decades. The half-mile track in Rossburg, Ohio, is owned by three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart, who Thursday in Las Vegas won the prestigious Myers Brothers Award for outstanding contribution to stock-car racing. The success of the inaugural Mudsummer Classic race at Eldora, which became one of the year's signature moments, was a large reason why Stewart received the award.

The 2013 Truck Series event at Eldora sold out of grandstand seating in less than a month. The track has 17,700 reserved grandstand seats, and with hillside seating can accommodate around 20,000 fans.

The 2014 race is set for July 23, and tickets are available at eldoraspeedway.com.
