New Weston, OH ( - The Camping World Truck Series is racing on the dirt again on Wednesday night at Eldora Speedway.

This will be the second time trucks compete at Eldora, a half-mile dirt track owned by three-time Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart. The Mudsummer Classic is the only race on the NASCAR national series schedule (Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck) that is contested on dirt.

Last year's truck race at Eldora marked the first time in nearly 43 years a NASCAR national touring series event was held on a dirt track. The last major NASCAR race ran on dirt had been on Sept. 30, 1970 when Richard Petty won the Home State 200 at the one-mile State Fairgrounds Speedway in Raleigh, North Carolina.   Full Story
