PORT ROYAL, PA – A Behrent’s boost.
The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco is set for the third consecutive running of the ‘Speed Showcase’ weekend at the state-of-the-art Port Royal Speedway.
The full weekend of racing takes place Thurs.-Sat. Oct. 13-15, culminating in Saturday’s 75-lap, $50,000-to-win main event for the STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds.
Behrent’s Performance Warehouse has signed on to present Thursday’s (Oct. 13) ‘Preliminary Night’ to kick off the three-day racing festival.
Behrent’s Performance Warehouse ‘Preliminary Night’ features a full program for the STSS Modifieds and practice rounds for the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman of the Belmont’s Garage South Region.
The STSS Modifieds race for 40 laps around the sprawling half-mile speedway for a $5,500 payday.
Behrent’s Performance Warehouse has upped the ante for Thursday Night’s program, adding $5,000 to the total purse.
Each of the top-10 finishers in the 40-lap STSS Modified event will receive an additional $500 in their pay envelope, so long as their car is outfitted with a Behrent’s Performance Warehouse decal.
Behrent’s Performance Warehouse was founded by Harry Behrent in 1972 as Behrent’s Speed Center Inc., a general speed and tire shop aimed at the general automotive market. In 1982, a decision was made to focus on the parts and service market and leave behind Harry’s career as a driver. The speed center has grown to a nationally known leader in the automotive racing industry.
Behrent’s Performance Warehouse is located at 38 Meadow Road Florida, NY 10921 and can be found on the web at www.behrents.com. By phone, call 845.651.7389.
