Jack Hewitt Brings “Dewitt With Hewitt” Driving Experience For Rare Keystone State Stint

Port Royal – The prestigious All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprints Bob Weikert Memorial is set for Saturday, April 25 at Port Royal Speedway.

The race will be bigger and better than ever this season with the winner’s share boosted to a cool $15,000 out of a purse that eclipses $43,000 in total for the 40-lap affair.

And the contingency cash on the line reaches a total worth of some $5,000 including $100 to lead each lap in the feature, $100 to win heats, $100 to win the dash and a $200 Hard Charger Award plus a special fast time award worth a minimum of $300 in honor of the late Raymond Jacobs.

As has become customary for the event, fans will walk away winners as well with the first 450 fans entering the main grandstand receiving either a free Weikert’s Livestock hat or a can cooler.

In addition, 20 five-pound boxes of Weikert Beef will be given away to lucky wristband winners and youth ages 12 and under will get a chance to win one of five girls and five boys bicycles.

The speedway announced April 4 that world-renowned sprint car veteran Jack Hewitt of Troy, Ohio, will be on hand at the track for the event with his “Dewitt With Hewitt” two-seat sprint car driving experience.

A Hall of Fame inductee and USAC Silver Crown Champion, Hewitt will be making a rare appearance in Pennsylvania for the race with his ride-along sprinter and will be offering three chances for fans to take a ride with him around the historic oval.

Port Royal will be just the second track in the Keystone State that Hewitt has appeared at with his two-seater.

Raffle tickets for a chance at one of the rides will be offered for just $1 each or six for $5 with proceeds going to benefit the Central Pennsylvania chapter of the National Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Legenday sprint car owner Bob Weikert succumbed to a long battle with Leukemia in 2003.
