Events Part Of 161st Annual Juniata County Fair
Port Royal – Four racing events in three days will kick off the 161st annual Juniata County Fair at the Port Royal Speedway this coming holiday weekend, September 5 – 7.

He was featured in Segment 4 of the program.
Austin Hogue was highlighted in Segment 2. He talked about first career 410 Sprint Car win at Williams Grove Speedway and what he needs to improve on to become a consistent fixture in the division moving forward.
USAC SILVER CROWN CHAMPIONSHIP NEWS
DuQUOIN's "TED HORN 100" SUNDAY IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS
Ted Horn was one of America's greatest race drivers. Between 1936 and 1948, he forged an Indianapolis 500 record like none ever seen before or since. Those nine consecutive starts resulted in no finish worse than fourth! Despite the lack of an Indianapolis 500 victory, he captured the American National Championship three times in a row (1946-1947-1948) before a late-1948 accident at the DuQuoin (Ill.) State Fairgrounds claimed his life. This Sunday night, his memory will again be celebrated as the USAC Silver Crown Championship Cars contest the "Ted Horn 100" at the beautiful one-mile DuQuoin dirt track. READ MORE
to Cap Oil City Cup
Inside Line Promotions - EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (Aug. 31, 2015) - Jason Sides capped the 9th annual Oil City Cup by tying his career-best result at Castrol Raceway on Saturday.
Sides finished fourth to wrap up the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series doubleheader, which marked his first top five at the track since 2011. He also placed fourth in 2010 and 2009.
"It didn't start out very well," he said. "We put a motor back in the car that we had some troubles with earlier in the year. We thought we had it fixed and was hoping for a better result. The gremlins are still there. We worked on it throughout the night on Friday and that put us behind the eight ball."
Sides qualified 13th quickest to miss the heat race inversion by only one spot. He then finished where he started - fifth - in a heat race to lock into the 13th starting position for the main event.
Mooresville, N.C. (August 31, 2015) -- Driver Shane Stewart and the Larson Marks Racing team posted runner-up and fifth-place finishes in their first appearance in the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
On Friday, Stewart qualified seventh and won his heat to transfer into the World of Outlaws dash. After winning the dash, Stewart started the 30-lap feature event from the pole position. Stewart held the lead and continued to battle fellow competitor Joey Saldana throughout the event. After leading laps one through 16, Stewart fell to second on a restart. He and Saldana continued to battle until getting trapped behind a lapped car that let third-running Donny Schatz get by both of them to take the lead.

Donny Schatz wins the Oil City Cup championship for the third year in a row
EDMONTON, Alb. - Aug. 29, 2015 - Daryn Pittman got a nice birthday surprise Saturday night at Castrol Raceway as he drove his No. 9 Great Clips car to victory lane in the finale of the Oil City Cup.
The victory was not an easy one as he battled past a hungry Logan Schuchart and held off a late charging Donny Schatz to score his fourth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season - his first in three months.
"Great team effort for this whole Great Clips team," Pittman said. "It's been a long time, way too long. These guys work too hard and are too good to stay out of victory lane as long as we have."
Pittman said it has been a frustrating year for his Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb team - he battled injury early on in the season and success has not come as frequently as it did in the prior two years.

Hodnett started seventh in the 25-lap sprint car main while Brock Zearfoss took the green flag and lead from the pole. Zearfoss would set the early pacer over Rick Lafferty before Lance Dewease motored by for second on the sixth tour. Hodnett got by Lafferty for third a lap later and was stalking the top two when the leaders entered the backmarkers on the ninth lap.
Ralph Morgan claims first Lincoln win in 358 late models; Kory Sites best of street stocks
ABBOTTSTOWN, PA, 8/29/2015 –Another historic night at Lincoln Speedway saw the next generation of Rahmers pull into victory lane, as Brandon Rahmer held off the late-race challenges of Lincoln points leader Brian Montieth to score his first career “410” sprint car win.
“I was trying to run my ass off to keep away from them,” said Rahmer when asked whether he knew if Montieth and 12th-starting Danny Dietrich were running second and third behind him, “I kept my speed up top. I didn’t know if Brian had enough to slide up in front of me going into three. That’s how Danny (Dietrich) got me the other two times I was in the front here. But I finally got to stand up here.”
