World Of Outlaws Storm Port Royal Speedway In 34 Days!
Port Royal – Just 34 days remain until the heralded return of the STP World of Outlaws sprint cars to Port Royal Speedway, on Saturday, October 25 at 5 pm. The October 25 show will be the first of its kind at the track in a decade for the national touring band. The Port Royal event will be the final appearance on Pennsylvania clay by perennial outlaws champion Steve Kinser of Bloomington, Ind., as a full time touring professional with the outlaws. "Port Royal has the greatest fans anywhere and they've really supported us and come back to us over the last three years as we all have worked together to make Port Royal the kind of venue that can now host the World of Outlaws again," noted Port Royal promoter Steve O'Neal earlier this season.
World of Outlaws & Keystone RaceSaver Blue Collar Classic In Offing

Lafferty Earns Port Track Title; Dave Leidy gets econo late main
Port Royal – Greg Hodnett of Thomasville made a bold first lap, thread the needle move to take the lead in Saturday's 47th annual Tuscarora 50 for 410 sprints at Port Royal Speedway to trump the field for the fourth 50 checkers of his career worth over $13,000. Hodnett started fourth in the deep field that was whittled down from 41 entries in the All Stars event, with Danny Holtgraver and Lynton Jeffrey on the front row for the green flag. And when the field roared down the frontchute into the first turn, Hodnett hung with his high line around the top and blasted to the outside of Pittsburgh's Holtgraver as he came off of the second corner.
PORT ROYAL: Mike Heffner remembers his father taking him to Port Royal Speedway for the Tuscarora 50. So when Heffner got into the Sprint Car ownership game, the prestigious race was one of the top lines on his victory bucket list. And now, it's been crossed off. Hired gun Greg Hodnett made sure of it in emphatic fashion Saturday night.
Dominating. Decisive. Imposing. It doesn't matter what word you use to describe Hodnett over the 50-lap onslaught. It all means the same and ends with the Thomasville driver collecting his fourth win in the event. Hodnett also sat in Victory Lane in 1998, 2004 and 2009, tying Doug Wolfgang, Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease for the most Tuscarora 50 victories. This particular march was worth a hefty $13,350.
"This is definitely a worthy win," Heffner said. "The first half of the race was great, and Greg did a great job.
takes Night Before the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal
PORT ROYAL, PA (Friday, Sept. 5, 2014) – Stevie Smith held off charges from Danny Holtgraver to win the $5,000 Night Before the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway Friday Night. The win was Smith's 16th career University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions victory, as he has tied his dad, Steve Smith's career series total.
Piloting the Fred Rahmer/Dave Prichard-owned #51, Smith took the lead from pole-sitter Doug Esh early in the non-stop 30-lapper. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania driver Danny Holtgraver, who started in the outside front row, challenged Smith several times late in the race, but his car faded in the final laps as Danny Dietrich took second on the last lap.

Dylan Yoder Is First Repeat In Super Lates, Lupfer Claims Title
Port Royal – Stevie Smith overtook Doug Esh and drove to his second career Night Before The Tuscarora 50 sprint car victory on Friday night at Port Royal Speedway, worth $5,000. A native of New Oxford, PA, Smith's first win in the event was back in 2010 while his All Stars win on Friday night gave him an even dozen in the all time Port Royal record books. In the 20-lap super late model main, Selinsgrove's Dylan Yoder became the first repeat winner of the season in the division, scoring the victory in the final show of the year at the track for the super stock cars.
Doug Esh and Danny Holtgraver took the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprints feature green from the front row in what would end up being a 30-lap non-stop feature event.
PORT ROYAL: Stevie Smith was having fun running at the front of the field Friday night at Port Royal Speedway.
So much so, that he had no idea how long the feature was or what lap he was completing at the flagstand. The track was quick, and Smith's car was that good.
Smith had an even better time in Victory Lane. That's what happens when you drive to the front and capture a $5,000 payday in the All Star Circuit of Champions Night before the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway.
"I was thinking it was 25 laps," Smith said with a chuckle. "It didn't seem that long, but I guess when you are up front and having fun, it doesn't seem like much."
Said car-owner Fred Rahmer, "Stevie did a great job. He did what he had to do, and we hope we can get the car even better tomorrow."
Trio Should Fight It Out, Four Drivers In Contention
Port Royal – The advent of this weekend's Tuscarora 50 sprint car races at Port Royal Speedway will determine who is the 2014 track titlist and the title fight couldn't be any closer as the races draw near. After Monday's Labor Day Classic for the sprints at Port Royal, both Rick Lafferty and Chad Layton are tied for the point lead with 4,825 markers.
Both men have a win at the historic oval already this season. Harrisburg's Layton is already a two-time Port Royal rack champion, having scored the laurels for Middleswarth racing in 2010 and in 2012.
Yoder and Moist claim stock cars
Port Royal – Danny Dietrich of Gettysburg won the 63rd annual Labor Day Classic for 410 sprint cars at Port Royal Speedway on Monday afternoon, becoming the third and final leader in the event that saw a total of four lead changes. In the 355 econo late feature it was Middleburg's Andrew Yoder who dominated for the victory to record his fourth oval win of the season while Andrew Moist came out on top in the four cylinder main event.
A draw put two-time Labor Day Champion on the pole for the start of the 25-lap Classic event with two-time Port Royal 2014 winner Brent Marks alongside. Just behind in row two was Dietrich and four-time and defending Classic champion Lance Dewease.
PORT ROYAL: It's the recipe for success during a daylight show. Start up front, get to the bottom first and don't make a mistake. Stick dry-slick ace Greg Hodnett on the pole, and the rest of the field is running for second. The first-place check is his. Uh, not so fast. Danny Dietrich showed Monday that he loves daylight racing. And no matter where he starts in the field, he has a crack at Victory Lane.
Fortunately, the Gettysburg driver started third in the Labor Day Classic. He fell back to fourth before making his own groove around the top of the speedway and storming to his first career victory at the Juniata County oval. "I knew I had a chance," said Dietrich, who earned $4,000 for the triumph. "It was a long race, a long day. "I love daylight shows. It gets real racy, and you can make up time more than when the track is wetter and faster."

Justin Kann Claims Port Royal Renninger Late Model Memorial, Snook and Goodwin claim companion stock car events
Port Royal – Justin Kann of Hesston took just shy of $4,000 out of Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, claiming the annual Butch Renninger Memorial for super late models as the kickoff race to the 160th annual Juniata County Fair. In the 410 sprint main, Justin Barger of Montrose, Ny., recorded his first ever payday at the track after holding off Greg Hodnett. The 15-lap econo late main was taken by Todd Snook for his third win of the season while Mike Goodwin scored the xtreme stock main event. Jeff Miller Sr. started on the pole of the 33-lap Renninger Memorial, run in honor of the late three-time track champion.
PORT ROYAL: Justin Barger felt the pressure. You really can't blame the Montrose, N.Y., driver. He is still relatively new to the 410 Sprint Car division, and veteran Greg Hodnett was breathing down his neck. Big time.
But Barger didn't succumb to nerves. He took advantage of a timely caution and showed what he's learned over the past year, holding off Hodnett to lead the entire 25-lap distance and bank a $3,000 payday.
"In lapped traffic, it's tough to pick your line and know where to go," Barger said. "I saw Greg there, and I took a couple deep breaths and hit my marks. "I couldn't do this without the guys behind me. We keep digging and digging. We aren't always that good, but it feels good to do this tonight." Barger was quick from the start on the tacky surface. He got the jump off the front row and led Nate Snyder, Joey Hershey and Davey Sammons to the stripe.
