FOR THE SEVENTH STRAIGHT SEASON HAGERSTOWN SPEEDWAY LOOSES THEIR SEASON
OPENER TO WEATHER
HAGERSTOWN MD. For the seventh season in a row Hagerstown Speedway has
lost this weekend's season opener to weather. Saturday's show was to
feature the 410 Sprints and Late Models.
With temperatures forecast not to get out of the 30's Saturday and
Sunday, promoter Frank Plessinger canceled the weekend festivities. "It
would be too cold for both fans and competitors", said Plessinger.
"Track preparation would be very difficult with the sub freezing
temperatures we have been having at night."
Hagerstown Speedway will try again next Saturday, February 28th with the
Octoberfest qualifier for Big Block Modifieds and Late Models. Pit
gates will open at 10:00 a.m. with the grandstands opening at 11:00 a.m.
Hot laps begin at 1:00 p.m. with race time at approximately 1:30 p.m.
Should Saturday's weather be a factor, Sunday will be used as a make up
date. Times would remain the same.
