September 15, 2013              For Immediate Release



HAGERSTOWN, MD. – The Buchanan Auto Stores Brawl in the Fall several times rescheduled date of Sunday, September 29th is rapidly approaching to finalize Hagerstown Speedway’s 2013 schedule. 

From the last weekend in October 2012 when qualifying was completed but Hurricane Sandy moved into the picture with features in limbo postponed two weeks into November. Even then the damaging effects of Sandy were not only present at the speedway but calls received from participants and others from various locations with resulting damage and other lingering issues. Fast forward to March 17, 2013 and again March 24 when weather still failed to cooperate with those postponed dates.

Following the March 24 loss, suggestions were solicited from fans/drivers/owners and were reviewed hoping to arrange a suitable Sunday not to interfere with another facility’s program for any of the divisions; late models, 410 and 358 sprints or big block modifieds.

Schedules from every possible facility in the northeast were reviewed only to find a few with Saturday evening competition.

Plans are to complete the program as quickly as possible on Sunday and allow all to get on their way home. There will be a 2 p.m. limited warm-up time followed by the big block modifieds and then 358 sprint last chance qualifiers. The features will then proceed with the Late Models (50 laps), 410 Sprints (30 laps), Big Blocks (50 laps) and 358 Sprints (30 Laps).

The rules for those still holding a rain date are as follows:

1. The two day rain checks are good, so DO NOT LOSE them! 

2. The entire race fields are already set to race. If a car owner and driver part ways, the car, not the driver, starts the event. The car owner can allow the driver to take the spot if he/she chooses. Either way the unqualified car/driver will start at the rear of the field.
