PORT ROYAL, Pa.

Thanks to Greencastle Livestock Market of Greencastle, Pa., the Sunday, May 29 URC sprint car program at Port Royal Speedway as part of Weikert Memorial Weekend will now pay $3,000 to win!

 

Greencastle Livestock Market made the announcement Tuesday afternoon and not only does the winner’s share jump from $2,000 to $3,000, but the amount to take the green flag has been increased as well, bumping to a healthy $250.

 

 

The URC 360-sprints will compete in a 25-lap feature complete with qualifying races to set the feature grid. There will be NO time trials for the URC portion of the show.

 

Now sponsored by Racer’s Used Parts Warehouse, the top three finishing 358-sprint finishers in the URC show will each get a $200 bonus.

 

The URC sprints will race on May 29 as part of the three-day Bob Weikert Memorial Sprint Car Spectacular at Port Royal, kicking off on Saturday and ending up on Memorial Day evening, May 30.

 

The 410 sprints will race for $5,000 to win on Saturday, $10,000 to win on Sunday and $5,000 to win on Monday with Sunday’s feature going 35-laps in distance, Saturday going 30 laps and Monday going the standard 25 laps.

 

Super late models share the Saturday card along with fireworks.

 

The three-day program for the 410 sprint cars will culminate on Monday evening when the Weikert Champion is crowned based on cumulative points accrued during the three-day event.

 

The weekend event is being run in honor of one of the greatest sprint car owners ever to be known across the nation and around the world, Mr. Bob Weikert of Fairfield.

 

And after the dust settles, the three-day Weikert Memorial Champion will be crowned and a five-position point fund worth nearly $9,000 will be paid out with the title holder himself going home with $3,000.

 

In the event of only two events being completed due to weather, a two-day point fund worth more than $6,000 will be distributed.

 

All three events have a posted $200 Hard Charger Award up for grabs with the Saturday and Sunday Hard Charger earning a guaranteed starting spot in the following days main event.
