Port Royal Speedway holds there Syracuse qualifier for the (mid October) Sprint Car Super Nationals at the Moody Mile . Darren Eash holds off Keith Kauffman, Scotty Tobias, and Joe Gravino to record his second win at Port Royal Speedway in the 1986 season. Smokey Snellbaker is asked to run the Al Hamalton #77 back up car and finished 6th We interviewed Smokey in what turned out to be his "last hurrah" in a top notch sprinter. This DVD has a lot of wild action in both divisions especially in the Small Block Modifieds with Toby Tobias jr. destroying his #17 right in front of our camera. Johnny Strawser is joined in the tower by Matt Buttcostk to call all the lap by lap action. "Electrifying" Elvin Felty out battles Randy Fortna for win. DVD # 52486
