PA Sprint Speedweek Up Next 

Hagerstown Speedway is back in action with the annual “South of the Border” stop this Thursday, July 4th for the seventh night of the PA Sprint Speedweek for 410 Sprint Cars with the Johnny Grum Tribute.

Grum was best known in the region for his time spent behind the wheel of the No.66 cars owned by Harry Fletcher. Both have since passed away, but both are still remembered and revered for making a formidable team from the mid 1960’s through the mid 1970’s.

One of those cars was the uniquely built “Sidewinder” that featured an offset 427 Ford engine, and very low clearance that was dominant at Hagerstown Speedway. He won the 1966 Super Modified championship with that car, and another championship in 1969 with Small Block Chevy power a conventional Sprint Car.

Grum still ranks third on the all-time Sprint Car win list at Hagerstown with 21 career feature wins, and still holds the 35 and 100 lap records set in 1974.

Featured on the card with the 410 Sprints will be an exhibition of vintage race cars through the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing.

Pit gates open at 4:30, grandstands open at 5pm, and racing begins at 7:30pm.

General Admission $25, Student/Senior/Military $20, Reserved Seating (top two rows) $30. Kids age 12 and under are free. Pit Insurance is $35.
