Port Royal Speedway STSS ‘Speed Showcase’ Postponed by COVID-19

PORT ROYAL, PA – In accordance with recommendations from national and regional leaders with regards to COVID-19, Port Royal Speedway and the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco have announced the postponement of the ‘Speed Showcase’ this Sunday, March 22 at the Juniata County facility.

Port Royal will take a two-week hiatus from racing starting this weekend, speedway promoter Steve O’Neal said.

STSS director Brett Deyo said information on further schedule announcements will be released in the coming days and weeks.

“This is an unprecedented situation that evolves every day,” he said. “We are putting the health of our racers, competitors, teams, fans, officials, safety workers and media first and foremost.

“It’s important as a nation we do our best to combat COVID-19 and we can all look forward to getting back to normal sooner rather than later.”

Deyo and O’Neal are looking at Sunday, October 18 for the event’s make-up date.

“We definitely want to get the Modifieds to Port Royal this season,” Deyo said. “In two short years, this race has become a ‘must-attend’ for competitors and fans.”

The STSS website and social media channels will be updated frequently with information on coming events.
