Unfortunately, the red flag is out.
It is with deep regret and sadness due to the COVID-19 pandemic, along with local and state mandates of adherence to the CDC guidelines for crowd gatherings and social distancing that the officials and management of Hagerstown Speedway are postponing the 2020 racing season effective immediately for the foreseeable future.
We thank everyone for their patience and understanding with a delayed start to this season. We thank everyone for their loyalty and participation albeit in a shortened season ever since the speedway tried to begin in March before being stricken by the COVID-19 pandemic that has crippled sporting events all over the world.
Due to the high demand of attending events thus far, it has been determined that Hagerstown Speedway cannot properly practice safe social distancing procedures within the speedway grounds that would allow a larger participation/gathering of speedway attendants.
We rely on racers to put on a great show, and we rely on our great fans that come to watch and enjoy a night at the races. However at this time, we can no longer accommodate the masses due to the restrictions set forth by local municipalities of the Washington County Health Department and the orders from the Maryland Secretary of Health.
We understand this is a cause of great disappointment to the racers and fans of Hagerstown Speedway, and it is a greater disappointment to everyone else involved at Hagerstown Speedway.
Once again, we thank everyone that chose to participate and support Hagerstown Speedway in 2020. We plan on returning back to action as soon as we can, and hope for a full season of racing in 2021.
