Port Royal Slate Includes First Region Shows For NDRL Northeast Late Models

Nearly 20 Super Late Model Shows Slated

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway has its 2014 season opener set for Saturday, March 15 at 6 pm, featuring Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprints and Gray’s Auto and Towing super late models.

The season opener featuring the super late models will be just the first of nearly 20 shows for the big, powerful stock cars at the Juniata County oval during the 2014 season.

The super lates will be the focus of many special shows at the track throughout the year.

Two of the biggest shows of the year will be the first-ever appearances at the track of the NDRL – National Dirt Racing League super late model series, comprised of two northeast NDRL regional events.

NDRL launched its national series in 2013 with stars like Billy Moyer, Shane Clanton, Josh Richards and Jimmy Mars competing as part of its field.

And this year, the NDRL is launching its Northeast Region Series as part of its national competition.

“The goal of the NDRL is to provide the best racing experience possible for the drivers, the tracks and the fans,” says NDRL Northeast Race Director John Stivason.

“We are very pleased to be able to establish our footprint in the central part of Pennsylvania by scheduling shows at Port Royal.”

The high-dollar Port Royal NDRL regional shows will be the first of their kind for the sanctioning body in the central Pennsylvania area and will be the final leg of two-day stands in the state each time they visit Port Royal.

The first special show of the season for the late models at Port Royal will take place over the Memorial Day holiday weekend when for the second year in a row the Fallen Heroes Championships will be staged for both the 410 sprints and the lates.

Also in 2014, the track will host the finale of the lucrative Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Speedweek series in June. The 2014 race will be the Charlie Grinestaff Memorial.

The 11th annual Butch Renninger Memorial will also be staged during the season and another championship event for the division is also slated.

The 2014 slate also includes numerous shows for the newly created 355 econo-late model division, replacing the pro stocks in 2014.

Formerly called the “enduro dash” division, several races are also planned for the newly named xtreme stocks.

The full Port Royal Speedway 2014 schedule of events will be released within the next seven to 10 days.
