Tyler Bear takes chilly opener
Tyler Bear took the win Saturday with an impressive run, 26 cars were on hand for the opener which took place despite frigid temps and windy conditions. Hard work paid off at Port Royal as track conditions were very good and numerous improvements were made at the speedway over the winter.
Kody Lehman came home second followed by Alex Shantz , Jeff Miller and Nathan Gramley.
Our special Thanks to Christi and Dave Ort who helped out with paperwork and even had time for driver photos (including this victory lane shot) and Christi keeps everyone updated on our Facebook page.

Early start Saturday
The season will hopefully kick off this Saturday at Port Royal Speedway. Keep in mind this is an early start with pits opening at 2 and the PASS Drivers meeting at 3:45 followed by the Track Drivers meeting at 4 followed by heat in the engines.
Season opener delayed
We haven't even started the season and we've already had several weather related cancellations. Path Valley has cancelled for Saturday due to heavy rains expected throughout the weekend. Clinton County has also postponed the start of their season as a harsh winter and spring has delayed improvements being made by new management which will re-brand the speedway Racing for Heroes Raceway.
Our season opener now moves to next week for our April 5 race at Port Royal Speedway.
