in the area. 2005 will mark the 20th year that Elko Speedway
has been affiliated with the National Association for Stock
Car Auto Racing or NASCAR. The Speedway maintains standards
high enough to be one of only 60 short tracks across the
country to be sanctioned by NASCAR and fly the banner of the
Weekly Racing Series Presented by Dodge.
Elko Speedway has
experienced tremendous growth in the past several years. Since
1991 the speedway has seen spectator counts almost triple,
competitor car count increase 5 times, and corporate
sponsorship involvement up dramatically.
