Championships Decided As Weather Forces Hagerstown Cancellation
By Brett Rose
Remnants of Hurricane Harvey made their way through the Mid-Atlantic region over Friday night and into Saturday afternoon, forcing officials to cancel the final night of point racing at Hagerstown Speedway for 2017.
The final point race will not be rescheduled, and the championship point standings are final.
Congratulations go out to our 2017 Track Champions Kyle Lee (Super Late Model), Kyle Lear (Late Model Sportsman), Sean Dawson (Pure Stock), and Davey Gross, Jr. (Hobby Stock).
Lee won his first SLM championship in his rookie season of competing in the division. Out of 13 features, Lee won one feature, scored five Top 5, and twelve Top 10 finishes.
Lear wins his second career LMS championship with seven feature wins on the season, along with thirteen Top 5, and fifteen Top 10 finishes in fifteen starts.
Dawson wins his first PS championship on the heels of one feature win, fourteen top 5, and seventeen top 10 finishes in seventeen starts.
Gross, Jr. picked up three feature wins, fifteen top 5, and sixteen Top 10 finishes out of sixteen events toward his first career championship.
The Championship Celebration Picnic will take place at the speedway to honor our 2017 track champions on October 14.
