URC & HAGERSTOWN SPEEDWAY CELEBRATE 60TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON SATURDAY
NIGHT, AUGUST 18


The URC BAR'S LEAKS Sprint Series will invade the Hagerstown Speedway
(Hagerstown, MD) on Saturday night, August 18 for their first visit in
ten years.  Ironically, both URC and the Hagerstown Speedway will be
celebrating their sixtieth season of presenting auto racing.  Hagerstown
Track Owner  Frank Plessinger takes much pride in his 1/2 mile rich red
clay speedway that has straight-aways over 900 feet long and 70 feet
wide, with sweeping turns that are 90 feet wide.  The track has a
history of always being smooth and fast which will offer  the URC sprint
drivers  just what they are looking for. 

The 2007 URC BAR'S LEAKS Sprint Series is enjoying a great year with
nineteen events presented and fourteen different feature winners.  Of
those fourteen different winners, seven drivers earned their first
career win and the list includes Justin Collett, Dave Calaman, Chad
Layton, Josh Weller, Lucas Wolfe, Michael Carber and Joey Biasi.

A big story building within URC is the popular and welcome return of
female sprint car driver Becca Anderson.  Saturday night at the Orange
County Fair Speedway, Anderson of Houston, DE delivered a solid third
place feature finish and won her heat race driving the BAR'S LEAKS #17
sprint car.  Anderson, an eight time feature winner with URC and a
previous tour driver with the nationally known World of Outlaws is
expected to be a contender for the win Saturday night at the Hagerstown
Speedway.  Another driver building momentum is Trevor Lewis, who
finished second on Saturday night at Orange County.  Of course, we can't
count out Chris Coyle who exploded to a dominating victory this past
Saturday night.  Kramer Williamson was a recent feature winner at the
Delaware International Speedway on Saturday night, August 4 as Ed Aikin
won URC's big event, the $4,000 to win Shot Drop/Rislone Sprint
Nationals at the Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, August 3rd.

The Saturday night, August 18 event at Hagerstown Speedway will be
sponsored by Ernie's Salvage Yard and showcase the URC BAR'S LEAKS
Sprint Series, the nation's oldest traveling sprint car organization,
along with the popular Cindy Rowe Auto Glass Late Models.   Pits will
open at 4 PM, the Grandstands will open at 5 PM.  The show is scheduled
to begin at 7 PM.  General admission is $16, Pit admission is $25.   For
