Action Packed Month of May at Hagerstown Speedway

May has already arrived, and if it is anything like the way April was, race fans are in for a treat.

So far, Gary Stuhler has established himself as the driver to beat in Super Late Model competition. He has three wins in out of four races, and has started no better than fifth.

Kyle Lear is off to a great start in the Late Model Sportsman division with two wins, and consistent finishes near the front of the pack.

Jamie Zentmyer is the only repeat winner in Pure Stock, but he was in a different car than what he started the season with. Time will tell if he can return to his early season form.

Hobby Stock racing has featured different winners each week with battles for the win coming down to the checkered flag. It’s hard to pick a favorite or dominant car in this class for 2017.

The month of May brings us another appearance of the Crate Late Models in addition to our regular show divisions on May 6.

We take a week off of racing for the annual Bonanza Extravaganza over Mother’s Day weekend on May 12-14.

On May 20, we have Student Night/ Armed Forces Appreciation Night and 4 Cylinder Demolition Derby in addition to our regular show.

Over Memorial Day weekend on May 27, we will feature the first scheduled Mason Dixon Shootout Series for the Late Model Sportsman/ 358 Late Model race teams, along with Super Late Models, Pure Stocks, and Hobby Stocks.

And mark your calendars now for May 31. This special Wednesday night show is the opener for Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Speedweek. Expect many of the best Super Late Model drivers in the region to be on hand for this show. This is a special SLM-only event.

So, if you plan on coming this month, we hope you enjoy your visit. To those fans who have supported us this year, we at Hagerstown Speedway thank you for your support.

And to those who haven’t been here yet – what are you waiting for? You’ve missed some of the best shows already in 2017. Don’t miss any more!  Come out and join us at The Capitol of Dirt Track Racing.

Rain Forces Cancellation of Lucas Oil Series

With persistent overnight rains into the morning, and a forecast of rain continuing throughout the day, officials at Hagerstown Speedway were forced to cancel the 36th annual Stanley Schetrompf Classic for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.

The combination of rain and cooler temperatures will not allow enough drying time to give our drivers a safe track to race on.

Unfortunately, this makes the third year out of four this race has been canceled due to inclement weather.

The LOLMDS will journey up the road to for the first time ever at Port Royal Speedway for their scheduled race on April 23. The Mason-Dixon Shootout Series for 358 Late Models will join them on the card. General admission gates open at 3pm.

Lucas Oil Series Coming to Hagerstown Speedway

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is set to make their annual visit to Hagerstown Speedway on April 22 with the running of the 36th annual Stanley Schetrompf Classic.

The race is held in honor of Schetrompf, as he brought the famed Hub City oval to life in 1947.

Throughout the history of the Stanley Schetrompf Classic, the winner’s list of this prestigious event read of some of the best Dirt Late Model racers ever to race at Hagerstown Speedway.

Last year, Gregg Satterlee grabbed the upset win with a final lap pass of multi-time national champion Scott Bloomquist.

Six-time Schetrompf Classic winner Gary Stuhler already has two feature wins at Hagerstown in 2017, and has earned a guaranteed qualified position in this year’s running. He will be going to battle in the 60 Lap, $12,000 to-win main event against the likes of previous Schetrompf Classic winners Satterlee, Jimmy Owens, and Josh Richards.

Bloomquist has never won a Schetrompf Classic, and he will be looking to add this win to his resume. With the way the racing has been this season at Hagerstown, this night is shaping up to be one of the biggest and best races of the year.

Joining the LOLMDS on the card will be the Pure Stock division racing for double points and extra money in a 15 Lap feature race.

Pit gates open at 2pm, and general admission gates open at 5pm. Hot laps are scheduled to begin at 7pm. General admission is $32, reserved seats are $35, and pit admission is $45.

Free camping is available Friday and Saturday for those wishing to stay at the track. All units must be self-contained, no hook-ups on site.
