Sprint Cars, E-Mods, and more to appear at Hagerstown Speedway
Sprint Cars have a long standing history of racing at Hagerstown Speedway ever since the division morphed from the Super Modified era of the 1960’s. Sprint Cars were once a weekly attraction at Hagerstown Speedway, but have always made an appearance at the Hub City half-mile for special events.
In 2019, Sprint Cars will be featured several times. The powerful, winged 410 Sprints are scheduled to make three appearances during the season beginning on Sunday, May 19 when the newly-created Western Pennsylvania Sprint Car Series makes their maiden voyage to Hagerstown Speedway. Scheduled to appear with the WPSCS will be the Crate Late Models for their only scheduled race of 2019.
On Thursday, July 4, Hagerstown Speedway will once again play host to the Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek series with the Johnny Grum Tribute. Joining the 410 Sprints will be an exhibition of vintage racers by the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing.
The final 410 Sprint Car show is expected to be a big one on Sunday, September 22 as the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Series makes its first visit to Hagerstown Speedway.
In 2018, the IMCA RaceSaver 305 Sprints made their first appearance in the history of Hagerstown Speedway, and the event was held to great success with the racers and the fans. As a result of that night, the IMCA RaceSaver Sprints will be back in 2019 more than once and with a big weekend of racing.
The first appearance will be on April 20 that will guarantee the 305 Sprint winner a spot in one of the biggest IMCA RaceSaver events of the season.
On May 24 and 25, Hagerstown Speedway presents the inaugural East Coast Sprint Nationals for the 305 Sprints. Over 70 race cars are expected to compete during the weekend which will award $1,000 to the winner on Saturday’s finale. This is shaping up to be one of the biggest IMCA RaceSaver Sprint races on the East coast.
The IMCA RaceSaver Sprints return on June 15 with 600 and 270 Micro Sprints on the card for Open Wheel Madness. The 600 Micro feature pays $1,000 to win while $500 awaits the 270 Micro winner.
E-Mods have gained in popularity with racers and fans in recent years, and the division has been a part of the lineup at Hagerstown Speedway. The Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic Modifieds are scheduled for a few appearances in 2019 as part of the MAM traveling schedule.
The MAM will first appear on April 20, and again on May 4 before being the headliner on June 8 as part of Student/Armed Forces Appreciation Night. The MAM will come back to race again on July 6, and September 14.
The front-wheel drive U-Cars are on the schedule for eight events, all run under a Home Track Rule format. March 23 and 30, April 6 and 27, June 1, 8, and 29, and the SCN on September 13-14 are all nights scheduled for U-Cars.
Appearances by the Penn-Mar Vintage Racers and Classic Racing Series will round out the divisions of race cars scheduled at Hagerstown Speedway in 2019.
So, as you can see there is a lot of variety of racing at Hagerstown Speedway. Besides the racing around the 72 year old clay oval, you’ll also see the Monster Trucks from July 26-28, and the return of the NTPA Tractor Pull on July 12-13.
