In what was a most pleasant surprise and a true honor, Port Royal Speedway marketing representatives accepted Best of Show honors at the recently completed Pennzoil Motorsports Show held at the Fort Washington Expo center on January 12th, 13th and 14th. The announcement of the winner in the "2001 Best Appearing Speedway or Club Organization" category was made Sunday morning by show officials.

Port Royal marketing guru Sue Pontius accepted a beautiful clock on behalf of the speedway and was quick to thank all those in attendance who helped make the speedways presence at the show possible and a success. "If it were not for the invaluable support of our efforts by drivers like Lance Dewease, Lenny Thompson, Mike Wagner and Keith Kauffman and organizations like the American Dairy Association and Land O'Lakes, we couldn't have done this," said Pontius. "We owe all of these people, who care about racing, Port Royal Speedway and who recognize what it means to promote, a tremendous word of thanks!"

Combined with having the above mentioned drivers sprint cars on display and the unique talents of food sculptor Jim Victor producing a sprint car out of 100 Lbs. of butter that was supplied by the Dairy Association and Land O'Lakes, the Port Royal Speedway portion of the motorsports floor did indeed steal the show. Track officials expect the clock to be put on display at the Speedway office.

Port Royal Speedway will next attend the Dirt Trackin' Show, held at the York, PA fairgrounds on January 26th, 27th and 28th.
