Story By: JUSTIN SNYDER / PORT ROYAL SPEEDWAY – PORT ROYAL, PA – In response to the Cornonavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and in compliance with Governor Wolf’s recommendation, the Port Royal Speedway will be postponing racing activities for the next two weeks effectively starting with this weekend’s double header.
The postponement includes the March 21-22 races, along with the March 28th activities. The goal is to return to racing April 4th, 2020.
In the meantime, along with members of the Juniata County Agricultural Society, track officials will continue to monitor the situation in coordination with federal, state, local and public health officials, along with information based on recommended guideline of the CDC, to make the best decisions regarding a return to action.
Promoters from the ULMS Racing Series and the Short Track Super Series are behind the decision and we will also be working alongside of them to find appropriate dates to make-up any cancelled racing events.
The safety of our employees, drivers and fans remains a priority and we will continue to provide updates via our website www.portroyalspeedway.com and our various social media outlets via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
We understand these are trying times and we want to do our part in ensuring our fellow Pennsylvanian’s remain healthy and safe and look forward to returning to racing when we can. We thank all the fans for their continued support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.
