Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway is gearing up for the annual Living Legends Dream Race for 410 sprints coming up on August 2 at 7 pm.
The big money event will this year honor Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop as Living Legends in the track’s history.
A bevy of Dewease owners and Boop drivers will be turning out for the honors as well as an autograph session behind the grandstand from 5 until 6 pm.
Along with Dewease, Boop and their guests several restored Dewease No. 461 cars and Boop No. 1 cars will be on display.
Total purse prize money alone on the night for the sprints is now just over $55,000 not counting contingency cash and prize value.
The format will again be comprised of rich paying, main events only with thousands of dollars in contingency cash and prizes on the line for the sprint pilots.
Time trials will set the starting grids for the duo of 16-lap semi mains with the lineups for each main determined by odd numbered and even numbered time trailers after qualifying has been completed. ‘
Both the odd and even fast timer on the night will receive $100 but they will also have a decision to make as a guaranteed invert of four is promised for the semis however the pilots will have the chance to reach into a big for a chance at a 0 or a 6, if they so choose.
The top 10 finishers from each semi main will advance into the Dream A Main with a revenge draw then being held between the top three from each semi to set the front three rows of the Dream A.
Starting spots 21 – 24 in the Dream feature will transfer out of the consolation event while a 25th starter is awarded based on a fan vote.
Fans will get to cheer the loudest for each driver who finishes the consolation but fails to get a top four and the driver receiving the loudest response will get that valuable final A Main starting position.
Following the Dream A Feature the final sprint event of the night will be the Penske Shocks Non Qualifiers Main, paying $500 to win for all sprint drivers who failed to make the A Main starting grid.
The econo late models are also on the program with a pair of feature events, each paying full points toward the season title. Only the Dream A Main will award points in the sprint division.
Gates will open at 4 pm for the 2014 Dream Race honoring Lance Dewease and Maynard Boop.
Racing begins at 7 pm.
