PORT ROYAL, PA – Port Royal Speedway returns this Saturday, April 29th, with another three-division spectacular as part of Mike Cleck Paving and Sealcoating’s Spring Thaw presented by Ramsey’s Car Wash.
Originally scheduled to be a weekend doubleheader, Sunday’s Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series Battle in the Borough has already been cancelled due to expected forecasted rains.
Saturday night will see the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars compete for a whopping $10,000 as part of the rescheduled Spring Thaw event. Also on the card will be the USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars and the Penns Valley Meat Market PA Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars.
The event is one of the largest unsanctioned events of the year and features more than a $37,000 purse just for the starting lineup of the 410 Sprint Cars. Presented by Mike and Penny Cleck, the event dubbed ‘The American Working Man’s Race’, is a give-back to the local drivers putting in the hard work throughout the week to get to the track. It is the same spirit Mike and Penny put forth during their daily lives as local business owners and in the spirit of those who they care most about!
Pit Gates Open at 2:00pm, GA Gates Open at 3:00pm with Racing scheduled to kick off at 6:00pm
GA- $25, Students- $15, Pits- $35
Devon Borden enters the weekend as the series points leader, and he holds a 20-point advantage over Dylan Cisney. Justin Whittall (-40), Mike Wagner (-60) and Gerard McIntyre Jr (-65) complete the top five.
This will be the first visit to the Speedway for the USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars in the 2023 racing season and it’s Briggs Danner sitting on top of the point standings for the series after two events.
