Port Royal – It won’t be just the drivers that will be able to go home winners at the upcoming Port Royal Speedway Bob Weikert Memorial sanctioned by the All Stars on April 27.
The fans too can walk away with some loot thanks to the Weikert family.
The first 200 fans entering the stands for the $10,000 to win Weikert Memorial will go home with a Weikert’s Livestock hat, courtesy of Weikert’s Meat Market and Livestock of Fairfield, PA.
And as has been customary the last few seasons, 20 five-pound packages of prime Weikert’s beef patties will also be given away to adult general admission ticket holders during the night.
Also a continuing custom at the 2013 event will be bicycle giveaways for kids ages 11 and under as five girls and five boys bikes will be raffled off.
The 2013 installment of the race will see 2012 National Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Logan Schuchart of Hanover pilot a replica Weikert’s Livestock No. 29 sprinter at Port Royal in an effort to win the race for its namesake.
A total A Main purse alone of over $34,000 is being posted to go along with another nearly $4,000 in contingency cash to be distributed via lap money, heat victories, fast time award and more.
Run in honor of late hall of fame sprint car owner Bob Weikert, the Weikert Memorial has quickly become one of the shining lights of both the Port Royal and All Stars seasons over the last few years.
Again this year, each lap of the 30-lap Weikert feature will pay $100 to lead. Fast time will be worth $200.
Both courtesy of CRANKWERKZ, a feature hard charger will be awarded $100 to go along with the highest driver in Port Royal points that fails to qualify, who will also get $100.
Each heat race in the Weikert Memorial will also pay $100 to win in memory of late motorsports journalist Jere Reigle.
Action begins at 7 pm on April 27 with gates opening at 5 pm.
