Hagerstown Speedway Season Opener set for this Saturday

HAGERSTOWN, MD –  It’s been a longtime waiting for racing in the Hub City due to the Covid-19 pandemic that has caused interruptions across the world to daily living, and brought sporting events along with social gatherings to a halt.

It’s been a two month long wait. The wait is finally over.

Coming up this Saturday, May 30, Hagerstown Speedway will finally open the doors to the 73rd season opener with Super Late Models, Pure Stocks, and Hobby Stocks.

The 25 lap Super Late Model feature pays $2,000 to win, while the Pure Stock and Hobby Stock winners will earn a guaranteed start in the Hub City 100 on June 6.  Both stock classes will run under the small car national rules opening day.  Visit the website for details www.hagerstownspeedway.com 

Due to social distancing and gathering guidelines, for this event and the time being until further announcements are made, EVERYONE attending will be considered an event participant.

Racers and crew members participating will be permitted to enter the track restricted area on the inside pit, while all other supporters will be permitted outside the pit area. Insurance admission for the outside area is $15, and competitors/crew for the inside pit is $30.

All persons attending will be required to sign a release waiver.

Track concession stands will be open with social distancing guidelines of maintaining a distance of at least six feet apart. Wearing masks is encouraged, but only required when communicating outside of your family group.

Gates open at 4:30pm with racing starting at 7:00pm.
