Path, Port make for first PASS double

By Frank Buhrman

SPRING RUN, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Sprint Series will race at both Path Valley Motor Speedway and Port Royal Speedway this weekend, its first “double” in the corona virus-delayed 2020 season.

The 1/4-mile mountainside Path Valley track at Spring Run will see IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars in an action-packed Saturday, June 13 program. Gates open at 4 p.m. with warm-ups beginning at 6 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and $3 for students 10 and under.

COVID-19 waiver forms will be required Saturday and may be printed out from the track website and completed in advance. Social distancing standards will be observed with masks optional.

This will be the first of five Path Valley races on the 2020 PASS schedule; early registration showed 26 teams already planning to attend.

Port Royal Speedway will be hosting its first races this weekend at the historic Juniata County Fairgrounds in Port Royal. Gates open Sunday, June 14 at 3 p.m. with racing set to start at 6 p.m. Admission is $20 for adults and $10 for students. Pit passes are $30.

Social distancing norms will be observed at the Port (masks optional), but no waivers will be required. 

This race will make up for one of the Port dates lost during the virus shutdown for sports; Port Royal generally draws the largest average fields of any regular PASS track.
