By Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, PA- Mark it down on your calendars as the 2019 Bob Weikert Memorial race weekend over the Memorial Day Holiday on May 25th  & May 26th will again be “bigger and better than ever” at the Port Royal Speedway.

For the first time, both Saturday night and Sunday night will pay $10,000 to the winner of the 410 sprint car main event. But, on top of that, the super late models will battle it out both nights with $5,000 going to each night’s feature winner. The start time for both Saturday and Sunday will be 7:00pm.

Last year saw Lucas Wolfe pick up the Weikert Memorial championship for the second consecutive season and the sought after Steer trophy. Rick Eckert is the defending winner for the Super Late Models.

The Speedway will also pay $500 to start both nights and the Super Late Models will pay $400 to start both nights.

Mamma’s Pizza of Wellsville will be offering a total of $125 each night to both divisions for a hard luck driver of their choice as well.

Be sure to join us and MRN Radio’s Winged Nation will also be broadcasting live each night at 5pm EST until 6pm at the Stage behind the Grandstands. Fans at the Speedway can watch as their favorite drivers and personalities are interviewed and those at home can tune in on the Winged Nation and Speedshift TV Facebook pages or listen at www.WingedNation.com.

There will be live music from the band Swamp Root on Saturday from 2-5pm in the Commercial Building and a tailgating contest in the camping area both days.

Fans will also be able to participate in the 1st Annual Weikert’s Livestock Cornhole Classic on Sunday starting at 11am. Registration for the team event will start at 9am and end at 10:30am. It will be double elimination and cost is $30/team. The event is BYOB- Meaning Bring Your Own Beverages and Bring Your own Bags. House Bags can be supplied and bags are not to include corn. The payout will be no less than 80% of entry fees to the top 3 finishing teams
