Focus will be on fun at Port Royal October 10-11
It's not often that RaceSaver sprints are the feature attraction in Pennsylvania but on October 10th and 11th the Recreational class will once again headline at "The Speed Palace".
Port Royal Speedway will host the 3rd annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge that Saturday along with the 410 sprint cars and extreme stocks. Friday will be a regular show as a tune-up with the winner given a guaranteed spot Saturday
The race has attracted more than 50 cars at each event the past 2 years and this year the purse has been increased throughout in order to make travel more affordable for all participants. "We'll add about $100 to every spot making it $400 to take the green and $1000 to win!" explained Steve O'neal promoter of Port Royal. "Our goal is to build this into a premier east coast event for RaceSaver and make it more possible for RaceSaver teams to travel from other regions. The goal is to represent the recreational aspect of RaceSaver and make this a fun weekend".
Along with the attractive purse for the Saturday A main we'll also pay our a full purse to the non-qualifiers race and tow money for those who don't run either race. Friday will be a regular format for the RaceSaver sprints paired with the 358 Late models with the winner given a guaranteed starting position on Saturday. "We hope by pairing RaceSaver with the 358 Late Models on Friday and the 410's on Saturday fans will come out to experience the best that RaceSaver has to offer".
Last year's event was won by Jake Waters in his first and only sprint Car win, Jakes Dad is well known at the Speed Palace and the affordable RaceSaver class gave Waters an opportunity that he and his father may not have been able to afford otherwise. PASS the local RaceSaver sanctioning region hosts the event which is open to all RaceSaver regions. Visiting teams must be active RaceSaver teams and in order to keep the focus on RaceSaver no team will be allowed to run both divisions.
In order to boost the purse volunteers from PASS are selling lap sponsors and other cash sponsorships as well as collecting contingency prizes. Any cash collected through sponsorships will be put throughout the field and to non-qualifiers. Contingency prizes are already coming in and will also be distributed as equally as possible.
These same volunteers will also be holding a covered dish picnic for teams on Saturday, anyone interested in participating can see how to sign up on the web site
