Weather Forces SCN Cancellation and Ends 2018 Season

Due to the gloomy outlook forecasted because of the incoming Nor’easter storm and the increasing percentage of rain predicted to come this weekend, officials at Hagerstown Speedway have decided in the best interests of the racers and fans to cancel the 12th-annual Small Car Nationals.

Race teams that already pre-entered for the SCN will have their entry fee refunded. Please be patient as management will be processing funds to be returned. Drivers that won the automatic qualifier races for the 2018 SCN will be granted a guaranteed spot in the 2019 SCN.

With this decision, this abruptly concludes the 2018 racing season. Unfortunately, this season was severely affected by rain, forcing the postponement or cancellation of over half the events that were originally scheduled in 2018. We all hope that 2019 brings us a much better season of cooperative weather.

We would like to thank everyone that supported Hagerstown Speedway in 2018, and we look forward to having you back with us again in 2019. The staff at Hagerstown Speedway is already working diligently on assembling the 2019 schedule for the 72nd season of racing. Please stay tuned to the website or our social media pages for latest in news and updates.

Pure Stock and Hobby stock racers are also racing for an increased payout with $500 going to the winners in the respective 20 and 15 lap feature events.

This is shaping up to be a great show for the fans as car counts in all divisions are expected to be full fields of competition.

Remembering Greg Hodnett

The staff at the Hagerstown Speedway sends our sincerest condolences to the family, friends, team, and fans of 410 Sprint Car driver Greg Hodnett. Hodnett succumbed to injuries suffered in a racing accident in Pennsylvania on September 20, 2018. He was 49 years old.

Along with many other wins and championships at various tracks and series’, Hodnett was a winner of 7 features at Hagerstown Speedway in his career. Notably, he was a 3-time Octoberfest winner, and twice each for the World of Outlaws and PA Sprint Speedweek events.

Hodnett’s wins came from behind the wheel of the Stewart No.12, Hamilton No.77, Kline No.22, and the Heffner No.27 machines.

Hodnett exemplified professionalism on and off the track as a great ambassador for all of Sprint Car racing. He will be greatly missed.

IMPORTANT Updated SCN Information

With a review of the Hurricane Florence and the heavy rain received earlier this week, Hagerstown Speedway officials are going to make all efforts to run the 12th Annual Small Car Nationals THIS weekend on September 15-16. Tentatively, we are pushing back the entire program by one day. Qualifying and Heat Races will take place on Saturday starting at 7PM with Consolation and Feature Races on Sunday starting at 5PM. We will be doing another assessment on Friday, pending track conditions and additional rainfall.

In addition to the change in race schedule, the Awards Luncheon originally scheduled for Saturday has been rescheduled to Friday night, September 14 at the Wilson Ruritan Club – 16204 National Pike, Hagerstown, MD 21740.

Doors open at 6, meal served at 6:30 and awards will follow.

Unfortunately we can not predict the weather, but we are trying to make the best business decisions with everyone in mind. We appreciate your patience, your support, and thank you for your understanding.

Track Champions to be Decided This Weekend

The final point race of the 2018 season is scheduled to take place this Saturday, August 18 at Hagerstown Speedway. Track champions will be crowned in our regularly featured divisions of Late Model Sportsman, Pure Stocks, and Hobby Stocks.

Due to several event cancellations because of inclement weather, and after filling all available make-up dates, this has been an abbreviated season. But because of this, the races for the championships are up for grabs.

In the Late Model Sportsman division, only three point races have been contested. James Lichliter sits on top of the standings by a 15 point margin over Justin Weaver, and a 40 point advantage over Cody Kershner. Each driver scored a feature win and each has a shot at earning the 2018 LMS track championship.

It won’t be an easy task racing for the title as the final LMS point race will be held in conjunction with the Mason Dixon Shootout Series, competing without the roofs and going topless.

The Pure Stock division managed to get in the most races with ten shows. Point leader Doug Hoffman owns three wins out those ten races and has a 40 point lead over Jamie Zentmyer along with a 90 point lead over Sam Archer. Zentmyer and Archer each have single wins to their credit.

Hobby Stocks have competed in six point races in 2018, and consistency has put William Ecton, Jr. on top without a feature win. He holds a slim 13 point gap over Tom Caravello, whom has also been consistent without a win. 3-time winner Jonathan Raley trails by 36 markers.

As mentioned, the Mason Dixon Shootout Series headlines the night with the Pure Stocks, Hobby Stocks and the 4 Cylinder Mini-Stocks complete the card. General admission is $12, $10 for Students/Seniors/Military, Kids 12 and under are free, and pit admission is $30.

Gates open at 5pm, and race time begins at 7pm.
