Port Royal – The final two shows of the Port Royal Speedway season are set for the first two weekends of October, coming up on October 6 and 13.
The first program, on October 6, features a multitude of racing divisions highlighted by the Keystone Racesaver 305 sprints and the 358 late models.
The curtain will fall on the 2012 Port Royal season with the running of the make-up Foss Jewelers Labor Day Classic for 410 sprint cars on October 13 at which time the popular Super Sportsman will compete in a rare late-season Port Royal start for both classes.
The sportsman will compete in a full program on October 13 including a 20-lap main event while the sprint cars will vie for 30 laps in the Classic, paying $4,000 to win and $300 just to start.
Time trials will be part of the sprint program and an open tire rule will be in effect.
A wild Demolition Derby will close out the night and the year.
