Dackarna is a speedway club from Målilla in Sweden who compete in the Swedish Elitserien. Their home track is at the G&B Stadium which has been used as the venue for the Grand Prix of Scandinavia since 2005.


The team was founded in May 1935 as Målilla Motorklubb and in 1949 renamed itself Dackarna (in honour of Nils Dacke) and the club began league racing. Dackarna raced in the highest level of league racing in Sweden between 1951 and 1965, winning the league championship in 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1962, and finished as runners-up in 1956 and 1964. Dackarna switched between the first and second league for the next 30 years until 1997 when the team received the backing of a major new sponsor (Svelux) and were renamed Team Svelux. Svelux were taken over by Luxo in 2002 and the team name was changed to Luxo Stars. In 2006 the sponsorship deal expired and the team name reverted to Dackarna.[1] Success returned to Dackarna when they won the 2007 Elitserien after defeating Västervik in the play-off final.[2]
