Dirt track double-dip Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway

March 08, 2002

The big block modifieds of the northeast will join with the late models in a double feature program at the Hagerstown Speedway on Sunday afternoon.

The Twin 30's will get underway at 1:30 p.m. Gates open at 11:30 a.m. Warmups start at 1.

The late models and modifieds will each have a 30-lap feature with $2,000 going to the winner and a guaranteed starting spot in the Octoberfest 350 on Oct. 26-27.

Many of the drivers who filled the pits on opening day are expected back for the Octoberfest qualifiers. Jamie Mills, of Milford, Del., will return after scoring his first career win at Hagerstown in the opener. John Mason broke a long winless spell on opening day and is expected to may the long tow back from Millersburg, Ohio.

Sunday's race will be the final tuneup for the big block modifieds before they return for the Advance Auto Parts 2002 Modified Super DIRT Series on March 30.


General admission is $16. Children under 12 are admitted free.
