BROWNSBURG, Ind. – Originally scheduled during Memorial Day weekend, Port Royal Speedway’s Bob Weikert Memorial has found a new home on the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 schedule.

The Bob Weikert Memorial will be held July 18-19. An unofficial prelude to the Tuscarora 50 in mid-September, the Bob Weikert Memorial will award a pair of $10,000 top prizes.

Adding an extra kick to their visit to the Keystone State, Tony Stewart’s All Stars will launch the mid-July weekend with a visit to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., on Friday evening, July 17.

Honoring the ‘Flying Farmer’ Tommy Hinnershitz, the Friday night Williams Grove showcase will award a $5,000 payday, also featuring the 358 sprint cars on the evening card.

In addition, the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial will be a Hoosier Diamond Series event for the 410 sprint cars.

The All Star Circuit of Champions and Pennsylvania Posse battled at Port Royal once already in 2020, with Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri earning the $6,000 payday.

California’s Kyle Larson, the recent USAC Indiana Midget Week champion, came home second to Macri, followed by Danny Dietrich, Aaron Reutzel and Brent Marks.

Meanwhile, the Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial will feature the All Stars at Williams Grove Speedway for the first time in 2020.

The Bob Weikert Memorial and Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial weekend will pad an impressive July slate for the traveling All Stars, all of which kicks off with Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires.

The Speedweek schedule, beginning July 3 at Attica Raceway Park, features nine events at seven Ohio facilities over a 10-day span.

Each event on the Speedweek campaign will award no less than $5,000 to the winner, highlighted by the Dean Knittel Memorial at Portsmouth Raceway Park, worth $15,554.

Gate times and ticket prices for the Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway will be available in the coming days.
