Eric Halstrom is the new General Manager of Racing at Indiana Grand Casino and Racing in Shelbyville. The Minnesota native came to Indiana Grand from Louisiana Downs in Bossier City, Louisiana.

Indiana Grand Racing needed a new leader following the death of longtime General Manager of Racing Jon Schuster near the end of 2019. So the company turned to a trusted friend.

Eric Halstrom was announced as the Shelbyville race track’s new Vice President, General Manager of Racing in early February. By the middle of the month, he arrived at Indiana Grand and took up residence in Schuster’s former office.
