PORT ROYAL, Pa. (May 13, 2017) – The upcoming two-day Bob Weikert Memorial sprint car spectacular at Port Royal Speedway on May 27 and 28 is offering nearly $90,000 in total purse money and contingencies for 410 sprints, super late models and URC Sprints.

Numerous bonuses and awards are up for grabs by all three divisions during weekend action.

In both Weikert Memorial 410 sprint mains, a $229 Hard Charger Award sponsored by the Beer Hill Gang will be handed out to the driver that advances the most positions from his original starting spot.

The Saturday Hard Charger will also earn a guaranteed starting spot in Sunday’s main.

In addition, fast timers in both 410 sprint shows will earn $100 for quick time as posted by Packer’s Concessions.

Plus, tow money for all 410-sprint non-qualifiers in each of the programs is up for grabs in the amount of $100 while $75 tow money is being offered to the super late models and URC Sprints.

For the URC 360 sprint portion of the Sunday Weikert Memorial weekend program, the 25-lap feature will pay $2,000 to win and $200 to start but a bonus worth $500 has been posted to be the top finishing 358 sprint in the event, sponsored by Racers Used Parts Warehouse.

The 2017 Weikert Memorial 410 sprints will compete in the now traditional Fallen Heroes Championship on Saturday, May 27 featuring a 30-lap main paying $5,000 to win and $400 to start.

The super late models will race in a 30-lap Fallen Heroes Championship as well on May 27, paying $3,000 to win and $300 to start.
