Anthony Macri Sweeps Bob Weikert Memorial All Star Weekend With $29,000 Finale Victory

Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS – PORT ROYAL, PA – Dillsburg, Pennsylvania’s Anthony Macri has been unstoppable at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” this weekend, continuing his winning ways with a $29,000 payday in the Sunday night Bob Weikert Memorial finale featuring the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Officially sweeping the blockbuster doubleheader, Macri started fourth on the 30-lap grid and charged his way to the front by lap 10, powering around All Star Rookie of the Year contender, Chris Windom, with a drive-by move through turns three and four. From that point forward, Macri was basically untouchable, surviving periods of heavy traffic, as well as a caution break on lap 24, and again on lap 26, to secure the monster five-digit payday.

Sixth starting Brent Marks, who did his best to apply pressure during each of the caution restarts, drove on to finish second. Marks was followed by local standout, Jeff Halligan, Clauson Marshall Racing’s “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney, and Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck.

Including his Bob Weikert Memorial weekend sweep, Macri is now a four-time All Star winner in 2022, ultimately bumping his career total to seven with four occurring at the Port Royal “Speed Palace.”

“This is unreal…I’m speechless,” Anthony Macri stated in victory lane, driver of the J&S Classics/C&D Rigging/Valley Supply/No. 39M sprint car. “Brent’s not dumb. I knew he was going to catch on to what we were doing on restarts, so I just did my best to change things up a bit and keep him guessing. I’m just…I don’t know…this is going to take a little bit to sink in.

“I just can’t thank this team enough. Everyone works so hard back at the shop. We wouldn’t be here without all of our partners. Sandy from J&S Classics is back at home watching and hopefully we made her weekend.”

The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2022 campaign with an Ohio doubleheader at Attica Raceway Park and Atomic Speedway on Friday and Saturday, June 3-4. The weekend will headline with the George Fisher Memorial Freedom 40 at Atomic worth $15,000-to-win; the visit to Attica on Friday will award $6,000.
