AUSTIN, Texas (April 10, 2022) — Wet spring weather, paired with the logistics of a new racing surface, has forced officials with Eldora Speedway and Castrol® FloRacing Night in America to postpone the 2022 series' opening event, which was originally slated for this Tuesday, April 12.

The $22,022-to-win event at Eldora Speedway will now be held on Tuesday, April 26.

"Eldora Speedway underwent a major resurfacing over the offseason with over 250 loads of new dirt being installed. The relentless waves of rain and snow this spring have prevented crews from having many quality weather days to work on the track. Understandably because of these factors, the new surface is still soft in spots, and now with forecasts calling for up to an inch of rain on Monday into Monday night, all parties involved felt it best to postpone the event," said Castrol® FloRacing Night in America general manager, Ben Shelton.

"We were looking forward to getting the season started this week, but we'd rather wait and make sure everything is ready for a great show. On the flip side, we now will have an awesome doubleheader with Eldora Speedway and Brownstown Speedway to start our season on April 26-27. With fuel prices not being the cheapest right now, it will help save teams a little cash with two great-paying shows on consecutive nights in close proximity of one another."

All previously purchased tickets for the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America event at Eldora Speedway will be honored on the new date, April 26.

Additionally, on Tuesday, April 26 the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America Super Late Models will be joined on the program by a complete program for the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds and Eldora Stocks.

With the postponement to Tuesday, April 26, the Eldora Speedway event will still be the season opener with the stars and cars of the mega miniseries traveling west to Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway on Wednesday, April 27 for another $22,022-to-win program.

The sophomore season opener for the miniseries on April 26 coincides with the 2022 lid lifter at the famed Ohio oval. The upcoming season marks the 69th for "The World's Greatest Dirt Track."

Fresh off a hit debut campaign in 2021, the Castrol® FloRacing Night in America is ready to hit the ground running this year with 12 events at 12 different tracks in seven states.

The Eldora Speedway purse, which surpasses the $67,000 mark, includes a $22,022-to-win and $1,000-to-start main event payout.

In addition to drivers who are looking to begin their pursuit of the $75,000 potential championship check with Castrol® FloRacing Night in America, a strong cast of competitors are expected to not only chase the night's big payday but also prepare for The Eldora Million, which makes its coveted return on June 8-9. The second running of The Eldora Million posts a whopping $1,002,022 top prize and $5,022 just to qualify for the mega finale.

The FloRacing Night in America event will kick off Eldora's 69th season with a bang Tuesday, April 26! Featuring $22,000 to win Late Models, including the UMP Modifieds and Eldora Stocks! Don't miss this special Tuesday night performance! For more info, click HERE.
