Port Royal – DMI of Lancaster will present Camera & Autograph Night at Port Royal Speedway this Saturday, August 18 with gates opening at 5 pm and racing slated for 7:30 pm.
General admission ticket holders will be granted access to the pit area from 5:30 to 6:30 pm in order to meet drivers and get up close and personal with the racecars.
DMI will also sponsor giveaway prizes to fans during the night with a limited number of autograph books also being distributed as fans enter the pits between 5:30 and 6:30.
The DMI kids candy scramble for youth ages 12 and under is tentatively slated to take place just before heat action begins.
Later in the night, during intermission, kids racecar rides for ages 12 and under will be given from a starting point inside the former infield sprint car pit area.
On the racing card will be 410 sprints, late models, pro stocks and an enduro dash.
Race time moves back to 7 pm on Saturday, August 25 for Open Wheel Madness when the URC sprints join the 410 and 305 sprints on the racing card for an open wheel triple-header.
It will be the first appearance by the URC sprints at Port Royal since their first-ever show at the track back in 1967.
Sprints powered by a 358 c.i. engine will be allowed to compete with the URC division on August 25.
