PORT ROYAL, PA – Port Royal Speedway is set for two huge nights of racing this week with the Pennsylvania Speedweek Series coming up this Wednesday, July 4 and Saturday, July 7.
Racing both nights begins at 7 pm with gates opening at 4 pm.
Wednesday’s Independence Day holiday special program features the 28th annual PA Speedweek sprint cars in a $7,000 to win, 30-lap main while also featuring the return of the URC Sprints to the track for a giant holiday open wheel twin bill of racing.
The URC Sprints will be featured in a 25-lap main.
Coming up on Saturday the speedweek sprint cars again will race in a 30-lapper paying $7,000 to win while the super late models race in another Moon Shine Camo Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series event.
The Moon Shine Camo super late models will compete in a 25-lap main, paying $2,200 to win and $225 to start.
In the 2018 Moon Shine Camo Series kickoff at the track back on April 14 Jeff Rine took the victory before the next slated date at Selinsgrove Speedway fell victim to rain.
Both Pennsylvania Speedweek shows at the track will award full points toward the oval’s 2018 track championship point standings, currently topped by two-time 2018 winner Greg Hodnett of Spring Grove.
Dylan Yoder enters the Moon Shine Camo event as the Port Royal late model point leader by 145 markers over Jeff Rine.
Stellar fields of 410 sprints, super late models and URC Sprints are expected for this week’s racing programs with the racing action expected to be as hot as the current mid-state temperatures.
Adult general admission for the July 4 program is $20 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for just $10.
Adults will pay $22 to be admitted on July 7 with students again priced at $10.
In Pennsylvania Speedweek action at Port Royal last season, Lance Dewease won the only show that could be completed.
Mechanicsburg’s Lucas Wolfe beat URC when it was in action at the track earlier this year in April.
