? Snyder & Thompson Lost; Big holiday program is May 25 with big races, big money, big prizes and fireworks for fans!
Port Royal ? Saturday's Memorial weekend Fallen Heroes Championships at Port Royal Speedway will be special for several reasons including fireworks, big money being paid out to drivers, extra distance races and nearly two hundred Pepsi prizes being given out to fans but most importantly it will be special because the night is meant to pay tribute to five men who paid the ultimate price while racing at the track.
The early 1970's saw the track endure a pair of losses after already losing Hal Hoose and Hal Swarmer in 1958 and AAA racer Frank Bailey in 1947. It was May 27, 1972, when Dennis Snyder of Strodes Mills, PA, took to the track for the sprint feature. An identical twin, Dennis and his brother Dwight at age 33 would take turns driving their family No. 15 sprint back then but on this night it was Denny who crashed at the entrance of turn one at the end of the frontstretch early in the sprint feature.

Inside Line Promotions - BURLINGTON, Iowa (May 21, 2013) - 34 Raceway has been a good track for Joey Saldana.
In both of his races at the 3/8-mile oval, Saldana has qualified in the top eight, finished in the top two of his heat race and nearly claimed the main event. So it's more than obvious that Saldana is excited for the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series to return to 34 Raceway for the first time since 2009 on Friday, June 7. "The two times I've been there we've had speed," Saldana said. "It's a cool track. It's a neat facility. It's the type of place you want the Outlaws to go. It puts on a good race."
In the 2008 inaugural event at the semi-banked track, Saldana won his heat race and started fifth in the feature. He was charging toward the lead when a broken rear end sent the car to the pits before the checkered flag was waved.
