STEVIE SMITH IS THREE FOR FOUR BY CLAIMING HAGERSTOWN’S SPEEDWEEK TRIUMPH
July 2nd, 2015
HAGERSTOWN, MD – It was a matter of clean air and a late race restart that propelled Stevie Smith into victory lane at Hagerstown Speedway on Wednesday night for the 25th Annual PA Sprint Car Speedweek triumph. The $5,000 victory was his third in the four events held so far aboard the Fred Rahmer sprint and also his first Hagerstown win since May 2009.
Defending winner and fast timer Greg Hodnett started from the pole with a zero invert and after swapping the lead numerous times in the middle of the race with Lincoln’s winner Danny Dietrich, Smith used a lap 23 restart to build up a head of steam to grab second and continue on and come out of the fourth turn like a cannon ball to take command on the 25th lap.

June 14th, 2015
Scott Palmer lays claim to the Hoosier Daddy Topless event with dominant Late Model Sportsman triumph
HAGERSTOWN, MD. – Andy Anderson liked parking his new MBH Late Model race car in victory lane so much last week that he did it again Saturday night. Anderson of Bunker Hill, WV led the entire 25 laps at Hagerstown Speedway/Dirt Capitol to grab his second straight win over Marvin Winters by 1.898 seconds.
“It’s pretty much anymore where you start,” Anderson said. “I guess with Marvin winning the last point race here, that moved me up in the invert and Kyle drew what we needed. Luck played a big factor. Nathan (Durboraw) was giving me signals down there and I was trying to be smooth and keep it straight. I was watching the scoreboard and saw Marvin got past Gary and I just tried to drive off straight .I figured we all were on the same tires. I’m just glad to be here.” Read more »
