Wolfe, Lupfer, Zook And Yoder Record 2015 Port Royal Track Titles

Port Royal – Aboard the potent Zemco No. 1 sprint car, Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg is the 2015 Port Royal Speedway track champion after competing in last weekend’s annual Tuscarora 50 races at the oval.

Wolfe put his name in the record books along with his father Randy who garnered the track crown for his one and only oval title back in 1982.  

The track title for Wolfe was his first ever, anywhere, aboard a sprint car although the second-generation driver does own a pair of Pennsylvania Speedweek titles coming in 2007 for car owners Jim and Laura Allebach and in 2014 for Zemco owners John and Pee Wee Zemaitis.

Wolfe competed in 20 of 21 shows completed during the regular Port Royal sprint car season, beginning in April.

Along the way he notched a pair of wins along with three runner-ups, four third-place finishes, a fourth, a sixth, three sevenths, a pair of eighths and a pair of ninth place finishes.

To date, despite being a track titlist, Wolfe owns a total of only three Port Royal career victories.

While Wolfe wrapped up the sprint car championship in the Tuscarora races, Shermansdale’s Mike Lupfer recorded his second super late model track laurels in a row after racing in all 18 events held at the track for the division.

Lupfer began the year in dominating fashion by taking the first three late model mains in succession.

He then returned for a fourth win on the season in July.

Aside from his four victories, Lupfer pushed his No. 06 to a pair of runner-up finishes, a third, a fifth, a seventh, a eighth, a ninth and a 10th place finish.

Lupfer’s name is now in the Port Royal record books with other successive track titlists including: Marv Kauffman, Butch Renninger, Pete Swarmer, Harry Garman, Ed Spencer, Jim Nave, Graham Taylor, Ken Dickson, Chris Shuey, Steve Campbell and Scott Haus.

Other track titles recently recorded have gone to Jason Zook in xtreme stocks and Andrew Yoder in 355 econo late models.

Zook scored once in the xtremes while Yoder copped a pair of wins on his way to the title.

After a few weeks off, Port Royal Speedway will be in action three weeks in a row in October, coming up October 10, 17 and 24.

The Blue Collar Classic featuring a regional 305 sprint clash hosted by the PASS 305 series takes place on October 10 followed by Open Wheel Madness featuring the 410 sprints and URC sprints on October 17.
