ROSSBURG, Ohio — The heavy rains and severe thunderstorms that saturated the Eldora Speedway grounds and caused localized flooding in neighboring areas have forced a postponement of Saturday’s planned 60th season opener at Eldora Speedway.

With the cancellation, Eldora will now kick off the season on Saturday, April 20 with the United States Auto Club (USAC) National Sprint Cars in a tripleheader program that will also feature the UMP DIRTcar Modifieds and Eldora Stock Cars.
