A favorite for fans and competitors, Port Royal Speedway hosts the ‘Spring Speed Showcase’ for STSS Modifieds on Sunday, March 21. The 40-lap, $5,000-to-win program puts the STSS Velocita-USA South Region Modifieds on the card in a doubleheader with the Zimmer’s Service Center ULMS Super Late Models.
