ITTPA Tractor Pull June 27
Make up date for UFO Late Models and Moon Shine Camo to be determined
Port Royal - Due to the impending rainfall from tropical system “Bill,” Port Royal Speedway has cancelled its June 20 racing program featuring the UFO Late Models.
Calls from traveling late model and sprint car teams questioning the wisdom of attempting to race started coming in early Saturday morning and with rain already in southeast Pennsylvania by 10 am, oval officials determined it made the most sense in the interest of traveling fans and racers to halt the evening of activity.
Port Royal – Weikert’s Livestock of Fairfield has taken ownership of title sponsorship of the 410 sprint car division at Port Royal Speedway as was announced Saturday night at the track. Synonymous with sprint car racing in the annals of history, the famous family business now in its third generation of ownership has proudly partnered with the track to fly the Port Royal sprint car flag.
“We’re awful proud of what we do and what we’ve accomplished,” says Weikert’s Livestock owner and president Todd Weikert of the day-to-day operations at the multi-million dollar firm. “And we’re just as proud of Port Royal for what it’s become over the last five years and a stronger relationship with Port Royal just makes good sense for us,” Weikert says.
Davis gets xtreme stocks
Port Royal – Greg Hodnett ran down and passed Doug Esh to claim the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, scoring his third oval win of the season worth $3,200. In the 22-lap super late model main, Selinsgrove’s Dylan Yoder recorded his first speedway win of the year after garnering a host of podium finishes leading up to the event.
In the 305 sprint main, it was defending track series champion Jeff Miller of Huntingdon scoring the victory while Jason Davis won his second of the year in the xtreme stock division. Esh had the outside of the front row for the start of the 410 sprint main and he took the lead at the start over polesitter Brock Zearfoss while sixth starter Hodnett leaned on Mike Wagner for third.

Satterlee Wins $4,000 Port Royal Grinestaff Memorial After Battle With Zeigler
“This is the nicest facility I’ve been at in Pennsylvania!” ~ Kevin Nouse
Port Royal – Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills scored the $4,000 Late Model Speedweek Charlie Grinestaff Memorial at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, loosing the lead and retaking it to record his second career oval win in the 40-lapper. In the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature Lewisberry’s Kevin Nouse won an electrifying main event, holding off Greg Hodnett and Brent Marks for his first victory at the track since 2007.
With a stunning field of 47 super late models on hand, Satterlee drew the pole for the start of the Late Model Speedweek event with Rick Eckert lining up alongside. But Eckert fell backwards when action began as Mason Zeigler drove into second spot and began pursuing the leader.
PORT ROYAL: Kevin Nouse got the call to pilot a 410 Sprint Car in January, but he stood by his convictions and turned it down. It wasn't that he didn't want to drive Will Rose's car. He just wasn't fond of the idea of doing it at Lincoln Speedway. In Nouse's mind, it was Port Royal or bust.
Luckily, Rose called again. This time, the Baltimore area car owner agreed to compete at the Juniata County oval, much to the surprise of Nouse, who was content to run his 358 Sprint Car deal in 2015. Nouse rewarded Rose Saturday night by keeping the car up front and holding off Greg Hodnett and Brent Marks to score the victory in the 25-lap Sprint Car main event. The win paid $3,200 but was worth so much more.
Port Royal Late Model Speedweek Grinestaff Memorial Saturday Along With 410 Sprints & Xtreme Stocks
Super Lates race in 40-lap, $4,000 to win, $400 to start affair!
Port Royal – A huge night of action packed racing will be spun of this Saturday night, May 30 at Port Royal Speedway at 7 pm as Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Speedweek hits the oval with the running of the Charlie Grinestaff Memorial for super late models.
And racing along with the super lates on the program will be the 410 sprints and the Len Krautheim Auto Sales xtreme stocks.
The Grinestaff Memorial for late models will pay $4,000 to win and $400 to start the 40-lap main event with time trials setting the starting grids for the night. Gates for the show will open at 4 pm.
PORT ROYAL: Speed isn't a concern when Steve Buckwalter takes the track behind the wheel of the Clair and Jan Ritter-owned Sprint Car. The problem is the car staying together.
Motor issues have plagued the team over the last couple years. If it wasn't the power plant, it was a tire blowing at an inopportune time or Buckwalter getting caught up in someone else's mess with nowhere to go. But things have settled down a little in 2015. The problems have subsided, and Buckwalter has showcased his talent.
The Royersford ace set a blistering pace to get to the front in the opening stages of Saturday's 25-lap Salute to Fallen Heroes at Port Royal Speedway. The car went away at the end, but Buckwalter was good enough to get it to Victory Lane.

Irvin and Zook take econos and xtremes
Port Royal – Greg Hodnett became the third and final leader of the 25-lap 410 sprint car feature at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night to record his second oval win of the season worth $3,200 in what was an eventful feature. In an action packed 22-lap super late model main Matt Parks of Three Springs emerged as the victor after a messy incident that netted him the top spot.
In the econo late model main point leader Eric Irvin of Petersburg scored his second win of the season in the division while Jason Zook scored the xtreme stock feature.
PORT ROYAL: Greg Hodnett probably wasn't the fastest car on the track at Port Royal Speedway Saturday night. He was just in good position. And when you put yourself in a good spot or situation, things have a tendency to go your way. Doug Esh was leading the 25-lap Sprint Car feature and in good shape for his first win of the season. Hodnett wasn't too far behind and appeared to have one more charge left in the closing stages of the race.
But there was no last-ditch effort needed. Esh blew a right rear tire going into Turn 1 on the 19th circuit, and Hodnett took advantage to collect his 38th career victory and a nice $3,200 payday at the Juniata County oval. "Doug was setting a really good pace," Hodnett said. "I tried the middle and the bottom and everything, but he got up there, set his wing back and set sail.
