HAGERSTOWN, MD – D.J. Myers worked his way up to the front of the Super Late Model field, and powered his way to the checkered flag in the 25 Lap Super Late Model main event at Hagerstown Speedway.
Myers made his way from sixth on the grid to get by pole starter Chad McClellan on the tenth lap, and then survived a double-file restart following a Lap 15 caution. Myers checked out from the competition the rest of the way to record his first win of 2017, and his 17th career win at the Hub City oval.
Myers was followed by McClellan, Roy Deese, Jr., Marvin Winters, and opening night winner Gary Stuhler at the finish.
Bobby Beard thwarted off the challenges of last week’s winner Kyle Lear after an early race restart to pull away towards his first Late Model Sportsman win of the season. It was Beard’s sixth career LMS victory at Hagerstown.
Lear held on to finish second, followed by Barry Miller, Robbie Black, and Alan Sagi in the top five.
The Hobby Stock feature had a competitive battle for the lead throughout the 15 lap distance, and it was Davey Gross, Jr. passing race long leader Bryan Neff with three laps to go to pick up his first career win.
Neff finished second, while Shawn Shoemaker, Dustin Proctor, and Ralph Hansberger completed the top five.
Jamie Zentmyer recorded his second straight Pure Stock feature win. He was followed by runner-up Nick Dibella, Sean Dawson, Keith Koontz, and Frank DiBella.
