Elko Speedway has set its opening weekend for the 2022 race season, and this year like many years Elko will be opening up Memorial Day weekend and you can expect plenty of people and lots of fun.

The opener for Elko will be on Saturday, May 28th with doors opening at 5pm.

Elko Speedway is widely considered the premier racing facility in the Midwest. Elko has a high-banked 3/8 mile paved oval allowing for 2 and sometimes 3 wide racing. Both outside and inside track lights allow for fantastic fan viewing during night events.
The Speedway is also affiliated with the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) since 1987. Elko Speedway also flies the banner of the Whelen All American Series which allows our competitors to challenge other drivers from approximately 60 other tracks throughout the season

The post gives you a pretty good idea that this opener is sure to have just about everything anyone could want to see or do with spectator drag racing back this year.

From ATVs to Monster Trucks to lumberjacks and more, it's going to be a blast! - ELKO!

After the opening weekend for the speedway, get ready to turn it up to 11 with Hairball set to perform again this year!

All of these activities are welcome news, after going quiet due to COVID, it's great to see local racetracks get back to racing and holding full-house events.
