Whittall faces tough luck at Port Royal; The Grove and Port on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (June 6, 2022) - Justin Whittall was on course for a Port Royal Speedway victory on Saturday, June 4, that until Lady Luck stepped in and intervened, forcing the Vincentown, New Jersey, native to settle for sixth rather than a win.

Ringing the top of the speedway, Whittall, driver of the JW Motorsports, JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise, No. 67 sprint car, was on pace for a victory when his right rear tire gave way with ten circuits remaining, forcing the former Williams Grove Speedway winner to the work area. Despite the hiccup, caused by contact with the outside wall, the team would recover to finish sixth.

“It’s tough to swallow, but we’ll move on and try again this weekend,” Whittall said, who finished ninth against the All Stars during Bob Weikert Memorial preliminary action on Saturday, May 28. “We’ll get that Port Royal win soon enough. We’ve been in a position to get it so many times…we just need some luck to play in our favor for once.”

ON DECK:
Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will continue their 2022 campaign with another Central Pennsylvania double at Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11.

SPECIAL THANKS:
