Former Late Model competitor Al Richards passed away on February 28, 2017 in York, Pennsylvania.
Richards was 68 years old.
Well known for his entries featuring the No.4 spelled out in the word FOUR on side of his and his brother Bill’s racers, Richards was the 1994 Late Model Track Champion, and was inducted into the Hagerstown Speedway Hall of Fame in 2006.
Richards was a solid competitor for many years winning at other area tracks as well. He finished with five career feature wins at Hagerstown in a racing career that began in 1976, winning his first at the Hub City oval in 1978.
All of us at Hagerstown Speedway wish to send our sincerest condolences and sympathy to his family.
Al Richards will always be remembered as a champion.
