By Frank Buhrman

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (April 5, 2022) – The River Valley Builders Pennsylvania Sprint Series will be part of an open wheel race fan’s dream show this Saturday, April 9 at Port Royal Speedway for Open Wheel Madness

The IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars, which will run a 20-lap feature and qualifying events, are sponsored again this year at Port Royal by Penns Valley Meat Market. This will be the first of nine scheduled PASS appearances at the Port in 2022, including a twin-20s program in June and the annual Keystone RaceSaver Challenge in October.

Nine of the top 10 drivers in 2021 PASS points are set to run Saturday, including champion Garrett Bard of Wells Tannery, who is the runaway leader in Port Royal wins among active RaceSaver competitors with seven. Eight of the top 10 in points for the division at Port Royal last year should be on hand, including champion Dave Grube II of York Haven, the season’s only two-time winner at the track. 

Also planning to run is 2021 IMCA RaceSaver national champion Justin Clark of Hamersville, Ohio, who won last year’s Keystone RaceSaver Challenge. 

Doug Dodson of Middletown and Ken Duke Jr. of Selinsgrove, winners of this year’s first two PASS races, are expected to be on hand as well. 

Racing Saturday is set to begin at 6 p.m. Adult general admission is $20, with students admitted for $10. Pit admission is $30.
