Aug. 8 Port Royal Sprint Dream Race Puts Emphasis On Late Models Too!   Event honors Haus and Powell with lots of $

Port Royal – Port Royal Speedway’s Living Legends Dream Race coming up on Saturday August 8 is taking on a new tone this year as not only will it be something special for the sprint cars but for the super late models as well.

This year’s legends honorees are noted and veteran late model driver and owner Scott Haus and Ed Powell, respectively, and as such it will be a special night for both divisions at the track.

While both Haus and Powell made their biggest splashes in the racing world in super lates, both men did also venture into both the super sprint and 358 modified arenas as well.

And this years Dream event is meant to honor their entire careers.

Thus the super late models will compete in a special 21-lap championship race for the event, paying $2,100 to win, run in honor of Haus’ last car number before retirement, No. 21.

The super late heats will pay $33 to win at the event in order to pay respect to one of his top late model rides, the Rob Mapes owned No. 33 in which Haus had his biggest successes over the years at Port Royal.

And to respect Powell and his recognized No. 1H machines, the fast timer for the late models will receive $111 for his efforts while each lap of the late model main will pay $11 to the leader and a $111 hard charger will also be awarded in the late model main.

A replica Beech Creek Motorsports/Rob Mapes No. 33super late model will be campaigned at the event by Haus’ son Andy, who currently ranks third in the Port Royal point standings.

And Powell will have a replica red No. 1H on display at the race as well.

On the sprint car side of things, the event continues to be a standout for the division, offering its usual twin semi-feature format that leads to the prestigious 35-lap A Main, worth $10,000 to the winner.

Plus all the usual lap money and contingency prizes are up for grabs for the sprint cars including twin fast times, a non-qualifiers feature, a fan voted 25th starter and more.
