World Famous Eldora 50/50 Raffle Gets Even Bigger With Mobile And Online Sales
ROSSBURG, Ohio (June 7, 2018) – The Eldora Speedway 50/50 Raffle, benefitting the Tony Stewart Foundation and local selling charity Racing For Relief, has launched www.Eldora5050.com for the 2018 racing season.
50/50 Raffles are scheduled to be held at the following 2018 events: #LetsRaceTwo (May 11 & 12), Dirt Late Model Dream (June 7-8-9), Kings Royal (July 12-13-14), Eldora Dirt Derby (July 18), World 100 (Sept 6-7-8) and 4-Crown Nationals (Sept 22 & 23).
In addition to in-person sales, race fans at the track and within the State of Ohio will now be able to purchase 50/50 raffle tickets via mobile devices and at www.Eldora5050.com.
With winner’s shares of the jackpots as high as $38,135 in 2017, officials from the Tony Stewart Foundation and Racing For Relief worked with industry leader 5050 Central to expedite winning prize updates, reduce lines and improve the overall experience. All entities have shared their best practices including the installation of a live ticker synchronized with 5050 Central’s software and selling equipment used by the on-site volunteers.
Tested for the first-time at Eldora in May, the advancements now offer fans an even greater value than ever before and the winner’s share was greater at the test event. Tickets to the 50/50 Raffle are priced at: one for $1, six for $5, 14 for $10, 65 for $20 and 165 for $50

About the Tony Stewart Foundation: Tony Stewart established his charitable foundation in late 2003 to provide grant funding to well-qualified organizations serving children who are critically ill or physically disabled; animals at-risk or endangered; and drivers injured in the sport of motor racing.
Proceeds from the Eldora 50-50 Raffle directly benefit Tony’s TSF Grant Program. Using net proceeds from the 2017 50-50 Raffle program, almost $170,000 was awarded in the form of TSF Grants. Racing 4 Relief received $42,000 to further its work on behalf of drivers and first responders. And, just over $125,000 of the raffle proceeds were awarded to outstanding charities providing programs and services benefitting children and animals. Buying a 50-50 Raffle Ticket becomes so much more than a chance to win big!
DYK? Since awarding the first grant in 2004, Tony & his foundation has given more than $7.3 million to amazing charities working in 42 of the 50 United States. Now that’s ACCELERATING CHANGE!
