PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY
Excitement seems to fit the bill for Chad Layton at Port Royal Speedway. Earlier this year, he made a last lap pass to pick up a feature event win at the half-mile dirt oval.

“I turned it up a notch.”, said Layton, following his last lap heroics. ” I was kinda cautious there because I lost brakes on lap eight. We made the best of it. I seen I had an opportunity at the end and I definitely stepped it up.”
