ROSSBURG, Ohio – Eldora Speedway officials have announced that the legendary high-banked, half-mile clay oval will host two Kings Royals in July.
The events are a part of a blockbuster four-day event offering the superstars of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series two opportunities at a winner’s purse of $175,000.
The first $175,000-to-win Kings Royal will take place Thursday, July 15, with the second installment following on Saturday, July 17.
As a result of the loss of Eldora’s complete 2020 spectator event season, speedway officials reshuffled the hand they were dealt to create the formidable 2021 Kings Royal Week.
It all begins Wednesday, July 14, with the rescheduled ‘Jokers Wild’ paying $10,000 to win.
The 38th running of the Kings Royal, the only event of the week that was scheduled to be part of the 2021 event, will be held Thursday night, July 15 and offer the first epic bounty.
The traditional Knight Before the Kings Royal preliminary event has been rescheduled from 2020 to Friday night, July 16. The night’s winner will take home a $10,000 prize.
The 37th Kings Royal has been rescheduled to Saturday, July 17, and will be the second marquee event of the week to pay $175,000 to the winner.
The announcement also marks the beginning of a new multi-year sanction agreement for the Kings Royal between Eldora Speedway and World Racing Group, the parent company of the World of Outlaws, DIRTcar Racing, and DIRTVision.
In addition to July’s Kings Royal Week, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series will again share the spotlight on May 7-8 during the #LetsRaceTwo Doubleheader Weekend.
The Outlaws will make their final Eldora appearance of 2021 on Friday, Sept. 24 as part of the opening night of the 4-Crown Nationals Weekend.
The BeFour The Crowns Showdown will feature full programs for the World of Outlaws, the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series, and qualifying for the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series.
