Severna Park Maryland’s Kyle Lear drove to his second win of the season in last Saturday nights 20 lap Late Model Sportsman feature at Hagerstown Speedway. The win for Lear, aboard his Ray Ciccarelli owned Rocket No.149, would be his 27th career win and it would also make him the first repeat winner of the 2024 season. Jonathan Raley darted into the lead from his front row starting spot as the field stormed into turn one. Raley had his car dialed in to the ultra fast Hagerstown surface as he would lead until a caution bunched field on the 14th lap. On the double file restart Raley and sixth starting Kyle Lear brought the field to green with Lear surging into the race lead at the flagstand and would then control the final six laps to secure the win. “If the race has stayed green there was no way I was going to be Jonathan tonight.” Lear stated in victoy lane. “I knew on the restart that was my opportunity to get the lead and we were able to get it done.” Seventh starting Shawn Shoemaker took second, Raley held tough for third with Danny Atherton and 11th starting Sam Archer completing the top five. Heats went to Lear, Raley and Wesley Bonebrake.

Beech Creek Pa’s Timmy Bittner drove to his first career Hagerstown feature win in the 25 lap 305 Sprint Car feature. Pole sitter Austin Reed burst into the race lead on the first lap and appeared headed to victory until disaster struck on the 22nd lap. As Reed was going into turn three he made contact with a lapped car which catapulted his No.34 high into the air which eventually would clear the guard rail and into the woods. After a few tense moments Reed would emerge from the crash scene quite shaken, but otherwise uninjured in the scary looking mishap. Once the event went back to green Bittner would paste the final three circuits to score the popular victory. “That was a bad deal down there for Austin, he had this thing won.” Bittner said in his post race interview. “This is our first win on a big track like Hagerstown and a big thanks to all our sponsors and crew for helping us get here.” Kenny Heffner, Josh Spicer, Ken Duke Jr and 15th starting Colton Hendershot rounded out the top five. Heats went to Ken Duke Jr, Zach Rhodes, Timmy Bittner and Owen Dimm with Reed Thompson scoring the B main win.

LaPlata Md’s Ray Love Jr. came from his 9th starting spot to collect his first win of the season in the 20 lap Crate Late Model feature. Tyler Horst, Davin Kaiser, Aaron Drummond and Codey Breeden trailed at the finish. Heats went to Kaiser and Breeden. Defending track champion Keith Reed drove to his second win of the season in the 15 lap Pure Stock nightcap. Reed’s 12th career division win came over Mike Fuller, Nick Fogle, Nathan Younker and Billy Ecton Jr. Heats went to Reed and Fogle.

Hagerstown MD, (4/20/24)-
Severna Park Maryland’s Kyle Lear drove to his first win of the season in last Saturday nights 20-lap late model sportsman feature at Hagerstown Speedway. The win for Lear, steering his Ray Ciccarelli owned Rocket no.151, would be the 26th of his career at the fabled Washington County oval.
Lining up second for the start Lear outgunned pole sitter Jonathan DeHaven to take the race lead on the first lap and would eventually pace all 20 circuits. DeHaven gave Lear all he could handle in the closing stages of the event, but would have to settle for runner-up money. “It’s always an advantage when you can start on the front row.” Lear stated. “It was a technical race track tonight, the lane moved a little bit, and you had to move around throughout the feature.” Although succumbing to mechanical issues in the season opener, Lear was quite pleased with the performance of his car. “This is a brand new car and it has been good since we unloaded it at practice.” Said Lear. “The track was ok tonight and we had two good racing lanes for having all the high horsepower cars here tonight.” Barry Miller took third with Wesley Bonebrake and defending track champion Devin Hart completing the top five. Taking heat race victories over the stout 41-car field were Kyle Lear, Cody Kershner, Devin Hart and Jonathan DeHaven with Austin Warrenfeltz and Scott Palmer splitting twin B-mains.
In the 20-lap UMP Modified main it was Chalk Hill Pa’s Mason Zeigler collecting his first career division feature win. Zeigler came from his 6th starting spot to track down race long leader George Dixon and would take the lead on the 19th lap to score the come from behind win. Dixon settled for a second, last weeks winner Spike Moore was third, Glenn Elliott took 4th with 12th starting Michael Altobelli Jr rounding out the top five. Heats for the 23 entries went to Zeigler, Elliott and Dixon.
Rockingham Virginia’s Jerald Harris drove to his second career Hagerstown feature win in the 25 lap 305 Sprint Car feature. Harris took the lead on the first lap and would cruise to the win over John Scarborough, 10th starting Jeff Paulson, Dale Schweikert and Daren Bolac. Heats for the 25 cars on hand went to John Scarborough, Daren Bolac and Dale Schweikert.
Defending track champion Keith Reed drove to his first win of the season and the 15 lap Pure Stock main to become the third different winner of the three week old season. Reeds 10th career division feature win came over Dylan Beavers, Tyler Fisher, Nathan Younker and last weeks winner Evan Foust. Heats for the 20 car field went to Foust and Reed.
