PORT ROYAL, Pa. – Port Royal Speedway returns to action this week for the final Open Wheel Madness event of the season.
Open Wheel Madness 3 will feature the Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Cars, the United Racing Club 360 Sprint Cars and the final points race of the season for the PASS/IMCA Penns Valley Meat Market 305 Sprint Cars.
Entering the weekend’s madness, Logan Wagner has already wrapped up his second consecutive Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car championship. Wagner leads the division with five wins this season.
This will be the final chance for drivers to get track time and prepare for the two-day visit from the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series next weekend. With the Outlaws on tap and many tracks done for the season, you can expect a high car count and several invaders to chase the $4,000 payout to the winner.
Other winners at the track this season include Aaron Reutzel, Trey Starks, Kyle Reinhardt, Anthony Macri, Jeff Miller, A.J. Flick, Jared Esh, Dylan Cisney, Lucas Wolfe, Lance Dewease, Danny Dietrich, Blane Heimbach and Ryan Taylor.
Also, on the card will be the third and final visit of the URC 360 Sprint Cars. Regulars in the 410 series, Ryan Smith (April) and Kyle Reinhardt (July), picked up victories in the previous two visits to the Speed Palace for the series while pulling double duty.
With three remaining races on their schedule, Chad Layton enters the event with a 75-point advantage over second place Josh Well and a 165-point advantage over third place Curt Michael. Austin Bishop (-323) and Jason Shultz (-651) round out the top five. Expect several drivers to once again pull double duty as well.
Finally, the Penns Valley Meat Market PASS/IMCA 305 Sprint Car will wrap up their Port Royal season with their final points event of the season. Ken Duke currently holds a 65-point advantage over Devin Adams followed by Nick Seigart (-70), Jonathan Jones (-75) and Zach Newlin (-95) in the top five.
