The Capitol Renegade United Racing Club will return to action this Saturday night at the Port Royal Speedway. The last time the URC visited the Central PA track, Curt Michael and Greg Hodnett took home the checkered flags back in May.
With Curt Michael on the verge of wrapping up his 10th United Racing Club Championship, look for the Bill Gallagher owned 5G up front battling with the best 360’s in the area including Hodnett, Wolfe, Whittall, Coyle, Stillwaggon, Weller, Locke and Betts to name a few.
Gates for the big sprint car program will open at 1:30 pm with engine starts tentatively slated for 4 pm.
Port Royal Foliage Days, a two-day autumn craft, food and flea market, encompasses the entire weekend at the track and historic Juniata County Fairgrounds, with activities both Saturday and Sunday.
Fans are invited and encouraged to come early on Saturday in order to take part in the long-time Juniata County celebration before taking a seat for the sprint car show.
A brief Foliage Days parade through the center of Port Royal along Rt. 75 steps off at 1 pm from the fairgrounds and as such, early race-goers may experience a brief delay as they enter Port Royal on Rt. 75 if they intend to arrive around the 1:30 gate opening time frame.
Admission to the grounds for Port Royal Foliage Days is FREE with adult general admission to the speedway for the races set at $20 with students ages 12 – 18 admitted to the races for $7.
