All Stars Invade Port Royal Saturday For Keith Kauffman Classic

Moon Shine Camo® Rt. 35 Dirt Late Model Challenge Series Kicks Off


Port Royal – Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars will invade Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, April 29 to compete in the Keith Kauffman Classic at 6 pm, presented by Locust Grove Retirement Community.

The Kauffman Classic, honoring the oval’s all time winningest driver in both victories and track titles, will go 30 laps in distance, paying $5,000 to win.

Equally as impressive on April 22 will be the kickoff of the Moon Shine Camo® Rt. 35 Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways Dirt Late Model Challenge Series.

The super late models will race in a 25 lap main event paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start.

Both the sprint cars and the super late models will be competing for points in the season-long Weikert’s Livestock sprint car and River Valley Builders late model chase for the Port Royal track title.

General admission gates open at 3 pm for the big event with adult general admission set at $22 and students ages 12 – 18 priced at $10.

The six-race, dual track Moon Shine series has posted a $3,500 guaranteed point fund for the top-five in series points with other prizes posted for the top ten in points.

In addition this year, Moon Shine has posted a $250 award for every driver who enters every series event contested in 2017 that fails to finish in the top ten in series points after the final event in September.

A stellar field of both super late models and super sprint cars is expected.

The All Stars alone will bring touring drivers such as series titlist Chad Kemenah, who already has a win this season, along with Caleb Armstrong, Caleb Helms, Max Stambaugh and many more.

In addition, Dave Blaney has confirmed his entry into the event along with track favorite Lance Dewease.

Dale Blaney is the defending Kauffman Classic winner while Hayes Mattern was victorious in the kickoff of the Moon Shine Series for late models last year.

Packer’s Concessions of Centre Hall will pay $100 to set fast time in sprint car time trials.

Kauffman will take part in the event throughout the night on the public address system with commentary and memories, etc.
