Port Royal – Heffner Racing Enterprises (HRE) of Hellertown has joined forces with Port Royal Speedway to aid in gathering and distributing thousands of dollars worth of contingency prizes to the sprint car drivers at the upcoming Living Legends Dream Race to be held at the track on August 4 at 7:30 pm.
“I want to help build the race for the fans and for the drivers. I’m proud of the work that’s been done to revive Port Royal Speedway and I want to be a part of it,” said Mike Heffner, HRE owner, Thursday evening.
Thanks to the efforts of HRE, already over $1,000 in engine dyno services from Rider Racing Engines have been donated to the event as giveaways.
In addition, several hundred dollars in gift certificates to Zemco Speed Equipment were added to the kitty on Thursday.
Both Heffner Racing Enterprises and PRS Promotions officials hope that more additions to the contingency giveaways package will be announced in the near future.
All the contingencies are on top of the already posted more than $50,000 purse money that is on the line including $2,000 to win a pair of 16-lap semi features and $10,000 to win the Dream A main.
The Hoseheads Dream Race Hard Charger Award will pay $300 to the driver who has advanced the most positions from his original starting spot at the finish.
In addition, a pair of fast time awards worth a minimum of $150 each will be paid out to the fast timer of each semi main courtesy of Terry Ritzman of Millerstown.
And, more than $1,200 in lap money has been posted with the leader of each lap of the twin 16-lap semis as well as the 30-lap Dream A garnering $20 for each circuit. R. E. Davidson & Son, H. F. Campbell & Son Trucking and River Valley Builders have sponsored lap moneys.
All of the above mentioned cash alone pushes the total one-night sprint purse to just about $55,000 and after the contingency prizes are figured in, the final figures on the one night take will be pushing if not eclipsing $60,000.
Included in the Dream contingency prize list are Goodyear Tires, Keizer Wheels, $200 gift certificates for VRP Shocks, $100 DMI gift certificates, engine dynos from both Rider and Ott Racing engines (valued at nearly $600 each), a set of nerf bars and bumpers from Mach 1 Chassis, Wings Unlimited discount vouchers plus certificates will be up for grabs from Rod End Supply, Zemco Speed Equipment, Penske Shocks and RE Technologies.
