Hagerstown, Md. – It’s happened again! Saturday night again became the preferred night for rain to arrive at Hagerstown Speedway. With late afternoon showers on hand and more on the way (that did arrive later), the only option was to call the program and make adjustments to the upcoming schedule.

The highlight of the evening was to be the 1st Annual Red Nininger Memorial 40-lap event for the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass late models which was part of Shootout II in the Winchester/Hagerstown Shootout series. Also affected was the Hoosier Daddy Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic late model sportsman 25-lap event.

The Nininger Memorial has been moved to July 5th which will also include the 13th Annual Jim Cornett Tribute for the Ernie’s Salvage pure stocks and late model sportsman.

The Hoosier Daddy event will be advanced just one week, to this Saturday, June 21.

So far, there have only been ten events completed and eight related to weather, seven lost completely and one with events rescheduled and completed over several other dates. 

“This is unbelievable, it’s always on Saturday night,” said promoter Frank Plessinger. “About five years ago, it rained out so many times. With the Memorial events we already have, the Nininger event was a good addition to the schedule. We can only hope for a nice July 5th which will give fans a good line up of races over the holiday week along with the Roberts Memorial and Sprint Speedweek.”

The speedway returns to action Saturday June 21st for a regular show of Cindy Rowe late models, the Hoosier Daddy HTMA late model sportsman event and Ernie’s pure stocks. The season’s third Enduro Dash is also included on the program. 

Pit gates open at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 5 p.m and warm ups begin at 7 p.m. Check the speedway website for any changes in weather at: www.hagerstownspeedway.com or contact the speedway office at 301-582-0640.
