PORT ROYAL, Pa. – After falling to weather the last two weekends, Port Royal Speedway will try for the third time to open its 2018 racing season with a big program to kick off the year coming up this Saturday, March 24 at 3 pm.

Featured will be the Weikert’s Livestock 410 sprint cars, the River Valley Builders super late models and the first oval program of the year for the Mason Dixon Shootout limited late models.

The super late models will race in the ULMS Chiller Thriller paying $3,000 to win and $300 just to start the 30-lap main.

The 410 sprints will kickoff the season with a 25-lap main paying $4,000 to win and the Mason Dixon limited lates will race for a $1,000 checkered flag.

Starting time for the big opening day show has been moved up to 3 pm in an effort to overcome the persistent cold March temperatures. Pit gates will open at noon with general admission gates opening at 1 pm.

Adult general admission for the show is $20 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted for just $7.

The first 600 adults through the main general admission gate will receive a FREE 2018 schedule magnet courtesy of Juniata Beverage.

Just who will appear to compete in the big ULMS Chiller Thriller event for super late models is anybody’s guess as the show will be one of if not the first show of the season in the region for the big stock cars.

However ULMS does have an even dozen drivers signed on to follow the series throughout its 2018 campaign.

Among those listed as part of the ULMS elite band are two-time and defending series champion Dave Hess of Waterford; Doug Eck, Corry; Max Blair, Centerville; Greg Oakes, Franklinville, NY.; and more.

March will close out at Port Royal with Asher’s Chocolates Kids Easter Night on March 31 offering a racing program of 410 sprints, super late models, econo late models and xtreme stocks.

The first 200 youth through the main general admission gate will receive a FREE Easter treat from Asher’s Chocolate of Lewistown.
