Late Models have new point fund sponsors.
Port Royal, PA The Port Royal Speedway has secured major sponsorship for their Late Model Division. President and Race Director Tom Little announced that AB Auto Glass and Ramsey's Car Wash will now be the title sponsors for the highly competitive class. Negotiations have been on going and final agreement was reached Saturday January 4. Little offered his comments on the agreement. " We're all looking to build the Late Models back to where they were three or four years ago at Port Royal. They will be our point fund sponsor and they've helped make it possible for a couple big shows. We're happy to have Nate Alexander, Steve Ramsey and their families expand their involvement with us at Port Royal. While they are doing the Late Model division they will also continue to sponsor the Tuscarora 50 during Fair week."
The large shows will be held on Saturday nights, the first likely to be added to the schedule during the month of May. At least two shows paying $ 2,000 dollars to win plus incentives will be run. With drivers drawing for starting positions, it's hoped outsiders will invade Port Royal on these dates. Both Alexander and Ramsey say car count is of major importance to them and they hope their involvement will help fill Port Royal Speedways Late Model pit.
