Elko Speedway Racing Divisions


MN Corn Growers Super Late Models
The Speed Demons of Elko Speedway, the Super Late Model division is the top NASCAR division competing as part of the NASCAR All-American Series. Built on a made for racing frame, combined with a high horsepower engine under the hood, these cars aren’t for the weak. Drivers in this division compete not only with other Elko Drivers but with drivers at other NASCAR Sanctioned facilities for top honors in the State and across the Nation!



HIWAY  Federal Credit Big 8s
Providing door handle to door handle action every Saturday night, the Big 8 division brings the fans to their feet night after night. With blistering speeds and daring drivers, don’t take your eyes off the action even for a moment. These drivers dazzle all in attendance with their side by side racing, be sure to remind yourself you are in Elko, MN, not Daytona Beach, FL



Genz-Ryan Thunder Cars
When the Thunder rolls, the Lightning strikes. When the Thunder Cars roll on the track, the lightning will strike! In between a Big 8 and a Power Stock car, Thunder Cars have found their niche at Elko Speedway. With a talented group of drivers strapping in behind the wheel each time they take to the speedway, Thunder Cars provide earth pounding excitement that makes the ground and ones body shake.



Pepsi Power Stocks
The Power Stocks allow a driver to make an impact on the sport without making too large of an impact on their wallet. Power Stocks are the entry-level NASCAR division at Elko Speedway, but the level of competition is much higher. With most components remaining stock, it is just like the sedan many fans drive to the races, just add a few years, miles and oh yeah, dents!




The Hornets class, previously named Mini-Stocks are creating a buzz around Elko Speedway! They made their debut during the 2003 season. Described as a true entry-level division, these four cylinder cars are a throw back to the days of true stock car racing. The Hornets class has swarmed the nation, providing four to five wide racing along with many thrills and spills along the way. Don’t miss what all the buzz is about.



Great North Legends
This brand of racing is popular from coast to coast! Designed as 5/8th scale replica of 1930’s and 1940’s coupes and sedans, Legends racing provides for a level playing field as all cars are manufactored by 600 Racing of Charlotte, NC and it’s up to the driver and crew to determine how much fun and success one can attain. Some of NASCAR’s your stars like Joey Logano and David Regan started racing Legends and at Elko Speedway it is not uncommon to see two, three and even four wide racing action!



Using the same magic formula that made the Legends Cars the most mass-produced competition car in history, officials of 600 Racing, Inc. have introduced the Bandolero Car. The Bandolero Car is a turnkey, spec-series racer designed for drivers as young as eight years old and the young-at-heart at any age. Come cheer on the up and coming drivers, as they battle on our inside track.




Hornet-Figure-8-racing-Elko-Speedway-Family-Fun-Entertainment-Minnesota-Minneapolis-Twin-CitiesThe new Hornets division is sure to be the fastest growing division in 2015, twenty drivers showed up on practice day.  This division was called the Mini-Stocks in 2014, Brain Adams won 6 races and the Championship, Ridge Oien, Justin Schelitzche and Michael Wachs Jr won two races each with TJ Christenson, Brandon Olson and Todd Tacheny all winning one race.  The drivers in this division will also be legal to race in the new Figure 8 Division racing 7 different times in 2015.  I will not be surprised if the fans are treated to as many as 30 Hornets drivers racing on a weekly basis at Elko Speedway, lets just say the flat turns 1 and 2 will be very interesting and the Figure 8 races will be something you don’t want to miss.
