Support to be Perpetuated through Booster Wall
Initial Unveiling Slated for September 2 WIX Filters Baltes Classic
ROSSBURG, OH (April 10) –From its humble beginning as a .25 mile
backyard clay oval in 1954, to today’s status as a nationally known
.500-mile clay race destination, Eldora Speedway has become the home to
many memories and has touched the lives of many people in many ways
throughout the past 58 years.
In an opportunity to commemorate this support shown by the fans and
racers, and to perpetuate the memory of friends and loved ones, Eldora
officials have announced the construction of an Eldora Booster Wall.
The Booster Wall will be located in a high-traffic, high-visibility
area at the north end of the covered main grandstands and will contain
permanently engraved tiles of two available sizes. The message of
choice will be an enduring testament visible to race fans and race
teams anytime they visit Eldora Speedway.
Available tile sizes are 4” x 8” with up to three lines of engraving or
8” x 8” with up to six lines of engraving. Each line can hold up
to 20 characters including spacing and punctuation. Introductory
pricing for the engraved tiles is $100 for the 4” x 8” tile or $150 for
the 8” x 8” tile. In honor of their longtime support, members of
the original Eldora Booster Club are being offered special one-time
member pricing of $59 for the 4” x 8” tile. A nominal $5 shipping
and handling fee will be applied to each order.
The first installation of engraved tiles will be unveiled in a special
ceremony prior to the 2012 WIX Filters Baltes Classic on Sunday
evening, September 2. To be included in this inaugural
observance, and to receive the special introductory pricing, orders
must be received no later than July 15.
As an added incentive, persons purchasing engraved tiles prior to the
July 15 deadline will receive a miniature brick replica of their
purchase, complete with engraving.
Order blanks and complete information may be obtained via
