This past weekend NASCAR star Tony Stewart returned to racing on dirt with a win in a sprint car race in Michigan. Tonight some fellow NASCAR drivers and a local driver from Lebanon Valley Speedway will be racing on the dirt at Stewart’s Eldora Speedway in Ohio.

There is no question that Tony Stewart loves dirt track racing. So much so that he went out and bought a dirt track. Last year he was able to bring NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series to race on dirt at his track for the first time.

In addition to the regular Truck series drivers, there will be some other notable NASCAR drivers in the field for the second running of Eldora Speedway’s Mudsummer Classic tonight.

Sprint Cup Series rookie Kyle Larson is entered. Larson finished runner-up to fellow 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate Austin Dillon in a dramatic last lap battle between Dillon, Larson and Sprint Cup veteran Ryan Newman in the inaugural event last year. Another Cup series rookie, Michael Annett, will compete in the #14 TMC Transportation Chevy Silverado. Ken Schrader will also be returning in the No. 00 truck.

Local driver J.R. Heffner, a two-time champion from Lebanon Valley Speedway is also competing. Heffner was a solid contender in the inaugural Mudsummer Classic last year, but was sidelined with mechanical issues. He ran strong and should fare better tonight.
