BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 2, 2020) - Originally scheduled to be headlined during Memorial Day weekend, Port Royal Speedway’s Bob Weikert Memorial found a new home on the 2020 Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 schedule and will now be featured on Saturday and Sunday, July 18-19. An unofficial precursor to the upcoming two-day Tuscarora 50 in mid-September, the 2020 Bob Weikert Memorial will award a pair of $10,000 top prizes.
Adding an extra kick to their visit to the Keystone State, Tony Stewart’s All Stars will launch the mid-July weekend with a visit to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday evening, July 17. Honoring the ‘Flying Farmer’ Tommy Hinnershitz, the Friday night showcase will award a $5,000 payday, also featuring the 358c.i. sprint cars on the evening card. In addition, the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial will be a Hoosier Diamond Series event for the 410 sprint cars.
The All Star Circuit of Champions and Pennsylvania Posse battled at the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace’ once already in 2020 with Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri earning the $6,000 payday. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson drove home second to Macri, followed by Danny Dietrich, Aaron Reutzel and Brent Marks. The Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial will feature the All Stars at Williams Grove Speedway for the first time in 2020.
The Bob Weikert Memorial and Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial weekend will pad an impressive July slate for the traveling All Stars, all of which kicking-off with the 2020 edition of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires. The Speedweek schedule, activating, officially, on Friday evening, July 3, at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, features nine events at seven Ohio facilities, all conducted over a ten-day span.
