Who Won Port Royal Speedway Today? [Fact Checked!]

One of the most exciting days of the year at the Speedway is race day! The cars come off the starting line and race for one or two loops around the triangular oval. After that the order is usually determined by who started first and who finished last. There is a lot of strategy involved and it’s always fun to see how the skilled drivers manage to outwit each other!

Unfortunately, it’s not all sunshine and cocktails. There are a few bumps in the road that slow down the process a little bit. One of the biggest problems is traffic. Going into this year’s race there were a lot of concerns about how busy the road would be. While it’s never easy finding a parking spot, it’s especially difficult when the starting line is close to capacity. This leads to long lines and people getting frustrated. Another annoying issue that sometimes surfaces is the weather. It can be windy and cold at times which makes the air feel thick and uncomfortable. The combination of the air getting in the way and the sluggishness that races can cause make for some rough days. But it’s all worth it in the end! After all, it’s all in good fun.

What Changed This Year?

There are several things that make for an improved Port Royal Speedway this year. For one thing, the drivers are a lot more experienced which makes for a smoother and more dangerous race. The track is also wider than the previous year which adds more passing opportunities. The biggest change, however, comes in the form of technology. The track was resurfaced last year and a lot of concrete slabs were left over. These were not ideal for holding water and creating better racing conditions. So for the 2019 race the track was repaved with asphalt and the pieces were taken out to create a faster, more thrilling race. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some tickets I need to get in line for.
