By- Justin Snyder

 

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Jared Esh has been so close to tasting victory at the Port Royal Speedway in Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car action. Just last week, Esh was leading the feature by a large amount when he nearly made contact with a lap car and allowed Dylan Cisney to close the gap.

He’s blown tires, got into accidents and at times struggled with track conditions. As a young driver driving in the shadow of his retired father, Doug Esh, it would’ve been easy to second guess himself and wonder if he’d ever find victory lane.

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Cisney has a flare for the dramatic. For the second time this season, Cisney used a last ditch effort to best Anthony Macri coming to the checkered flag for his second win of the season at the Port Royal Speedway.

 

The win didn’t come without drama though as Cisney was leading on the white flag lap and proceeded to get into the wall in turn 2 and ride the guard rail half way down the backstretch, at one point getting on 2-wheels. He was able to regroup, but made contact with Macri exiting turn four, sending Macri spinning wildly into the front stretch inside guardrail. Read more »
