Logan Wagner Cements Place in Port Royal History as Back-To-Back Sprint Car Track Champion

By- Justin Snyder

PORT ROYAL, Pa- Logan Wagner came into the 2019 season looking to build on the success of having won his first career Port Royal Speedway track championship the previous season. With three career wins at the Juniata County oval entering the year and once again flying the legendary John & Pee Wee Zemaitis Zemco #1 colors in weekly competition, Wagner felt confident about his chances.

While it took misfortune for Greg Hodnett on the final points race of the season and a dramatic drive through the field to narrowly claim the championship in 2018, Wagner was looking to make a statement and prove that he wasn’t just lucky.

On the strength of five victories, 15 top-five finishes, 20 top-10’s and only failing to qualify for one show, Wagner dominated the 2019 season and proved to be a force to reckon with for years to come. Read more »

WoO Merchandise policy…

Reminder- Per World of Outlaws policy, only World of Outlaws Drivers are able to sell their merchandise outside of the venue on race day. All local competitors and those traveling will only be allowed to sell their merchandise from their trailers throughout the night. We understand the inconvenience and concern, but it is a World of Outlaws policy and in the contract. For those wondering why they could last year, as it was a Tuscarora 50 rain date, it was our race and therefore our normal policy was in place. We encourage all fans to visit the drivers post-race and support them in any way possible. Any questions and concerns can be redirected to the World of Outlaws. Thanks for supporting Port Royal Speedway and we look forward to seeing everybody this weekend!
