The same day that Sharon Speedway was forced to cancel its World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series show set for August 22, Eldora Speedway announced that the 50th annual World 100 is being moved to 2021.
In place of this year’s World 100, Eldora Speedway will hold a non-spectator event on September 10, 11 and 12. See the full announcement from Eldora Speedway below.
Full release from Eldora Speedway:
ROSSBURG, Ohio (August 12, 2020) – Eldora Speedway officials have announced the 50th World 100 has been rescheduled to early September 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.
The legendary half-mile dirt oval’s biggest and most-famous event was scheduled for September 10-11-12.
Despite Governor Mike DeWine and the State of Ohio’s tremendous resolve to stop the spread of the coronavirus, the Ohio Department of Health’s orders which restrict mass gatherings and prohibit spectators from grandstand events at large venues remain in effect.
Fans who purchased reserved seats, general admission tickets and campsites for the 50th World 100 should retain their tickets, camping credentials and receipts at this time. Officials will communicate updated event information direct to patron accounts as it becomes available, on www.EldoraSpeedway.com and via Eldora’s official social channels.
