Bernheisel Race Components Becomes Official Late Model Port Product Sponsor

By SHAWN BROUSE

PORT ROYAL, PA – Bernheisel Race Components of Jonestown has announced its official product title sponsorship of the late model competition at Port Royal Speedway for the 2015 racing season.

Led by veteran late model racer and industry leader Jim Bernheisel, BRC will provide official product sponsorship for both the super late and econo late model classes at the track.

Bernheisel will host Manufacturer’s Appreciation Nights for both divisions during the season.

The 355-econo late models will have their special event on July 18 when they will compete in a 20-lap feature that also pays double points toward the season track title.

Each entrant in the race will receive a minimum value of $200 in racing components as part of the event.

For the super late models, August 1 will be BRC Manufacturer’s Night when the supers likewise will go extra distance for double points towards the title.

But also for the super late models BRC will offer up a FREE Lazer Chassis valued at $4,000 to the 2015 track champion if the driver who earns the crown does so aboard a Lazer machine.

And if the driver who claims the crown isn’t aboard a Lazer, Bernheisel will award the titlist a cool $1,000 for his efforts.

In total, Bernheisel Race Components will give away some $15,000 in component prizes to drivers in both late model divisions at Port Royal this season on top of the FREE Lazer Chassis or cash up for grabs.

“I believe that support needs to be given to local tracks, local drivers and local companies,” says Bernheisel of his decision to back efforts at Port Royal Speedway in 2015.

“And I’m stepping up to the plate and putting my money where my mouth is to do it.”

The super late models have just been inked for 22 appearances at Port Royal Speedway this season while the 355 econo late models will compete 14 times.
