Tony Stewart-owned Eldora Speedway website hacked, ISIS message posted

An odd cyber attack was launched against a number of companies, including the dirt track's website.

Eldora Speedway, a popular dirt track owned by NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart, had their website hacked with a message referring to the Islamic extremist group known by most as ISIS.

The message was promptly removed by website administrators, which read 'Hacked by Islamic State. We Are Everywhere :).

The speedway was not alone with a number of sites including those of the Moerlein Lager House, Montgomery Inn, MERS Goodwill and Elasticity being hacked by an unknown group. It is not yet known whether or not those involved have anything to do with the actual terroist organization, but it is unlikely.

Speaking to USA Today Sports, track owner and three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart responded to the breach by saying, "If there's anybody I'd want mad at me, I guess it would be them."
