Port Royal – After a week off on May 17, Port Royal Speedway returns over the Memorial Day holiday weekend with a huge night of racing on Saturday, May 24 as the Fallen Heroes Championships Triple 25s are staged.
Sponsored by Pepsi Cola Bottling Group and Packer’s Concessions, the championship races will pay $5,000 to win for the Aumiller’s Insurance 410 sprints and $2,000 to win for the Jake’s Carts super late models while both divisions compete for increased purses throughout.
The River Valley Builders 305 sprints will also compete for an increased winner’s share in the third of the 25-lap mains slated for the night.
The first 200 fans entering the stands will receive either a free Pepsi shirt or hat while over 40 12-packs of Pepsi products will be given away as well during the night.
In addition, free tickets to see the Harrisburg Senators or to visit Hershey Park and Knoebels Grove Amusement resort will be up for grabs as well.
Sponsored by Packers Concessions, Hoseheads.com, Crankwerkz and Mr. Terry Ritzman, a fireworks display will be shot during intermission to help celebrate the official start of the summer racing season.
Group qualifying time trials will be used to set the heat grids for the 410 sprints and super late models.
The Fallen Heroes triple 25s are meant to honor the five racers in Port Royal history that paid the ultimate sacrifice while competing at the track: Frank Bailey, 1947; Harold Swarmer, 1958; Hal Hoose, 1958; Dennis Snyder, 1972; and Randy Thompson, 1973.
