Remembering Eldora’s Jerry Gappens

Eldora Speedway

The World Racing Group family is deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Jerry Gappens.

Already a highly respected promoter when he arrived at Eldora Speedway as general manager, Gappens was instrumental in continuing Earl Baltes’ and Tony Stewart’s vision for Eldora, while further building upon the track’s legacy.

“Eldora Speedway is synonymous with the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing, and Jerry enhanced that relationship with his hands-on approach to some of the biggest dirt track racing events in history,” World Racing Group CEO Brian Carter said. “We are saddened for his family and friends as well as the tight-knit group at Eldora Speedway. The thoughts and prayers of all of us at World Racing Group go out them.”
