Garrett Bard picked up the PASS 305 Feature last week for his third career triumph at “The Speed Palace” and he enters the weekend as the point leader over Dylan Proctor, Doug Dodson, Christian Ramsey and Jared Ziaonkowski. Last year’s champion, Ken Duke Jr., enters the weekend 7th in standings and is looking for his first win of the season in the division.
In 358 Sprint Car competition, this will be the series only visit to the Speedway in 2020. The annual series traditionally has stops at various local speedways and has visited Port Royal the last two seasons with Jeff Halligan (2018) and Doug Hammaker (2019) picking up wins.
