The track currently boasts approximately 17,700 reserved seats, in addition to extensive hillside seating seats. After a recently-concluded pre-sale opportunity extended to 2012 Prelude to the Dream ticket holders, approximately 12,000 remaining seats for NASCAR’s first national series dirt-track event since 1970 will go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Campsite reservations will also be available Saturday via on the track’s TicketForce-powered online system, at www.EldoraSpeedway.com. The system is capable of processing up to 800 different orders simultaneously. Race fans can also call the Eldora Box Office at (937) 338-3815, and the Speedway Box Office will be open for walk-up sales.
There has been no shortage of speculation regarding the possible driver lineup for the race, with a combination of NCWTS regulars, invaders from the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide series and current dirt-track superstars eager to defend Eldora’s turf. NASCAR and Eldora officials continue to work on the specifics of the race program in an effort to blend existing NASCAR procedures with Eldora’s traditional short-track race format.
Eldora’s 60th consecutive season of racing action also features the $100,000-to-win Dirt Late Model Dream Weekend (June 6-7-8), the 30th Annual Kings Royal Weekend (July 12-13) and the 43rd Annual World 100 Weekend (September 5-6-7). Tickets for those events went on sale December 1 and can be included in “Mudsummer Classic” orders.
Reserved Grandstand and North and South Terrace Seats are priced at $40. General admission tickets are $36 and children’s (12 and younger) tickets are $12 with a $4 upgrade available for reserved seating in the North and South Bleacher sections.
