Brothers Kyle and Cody Lear were both successful Saturday night at Hagerstown Speedway as Kyle scored his first ever late model triumph and Cody earned his second Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic late model sportsman victory.  
Hagerstown’s Dave Stouffer took the lead after three circuits to score his season second in the Ernie D’s pure stocks while Krazy Kenny Thomas of Keedysville won his second straight in the hobby stock cruisers.

In the late models race, Marvin Winters pulled out to a 1 1/2-second advantage, but he couldn’t shake Kyle Lear, who took the lead on the ninth lap.

Lear maintained at least a one-second advantage until catching lapped traffic on lap 19, then began to stretch the distance on Winters until heading off the final turn two lapped cars and 2.555 seconds ahead of Winters.

In the sportsman race, Winters led from the pole before being overtaken by Cody Lear on the fourth lap. Lear had stretched his lead to 2.9 seconds when the caution flag waved on lap nine.

Lear then held a comfortable lead on Long while Winters trailed by nearly three seconds until cautions on the 17th and 20th laps again regrouped the field. Lear eventually won by 1.841 seconds over Steve Long.

Stouffer found holes in traffic and charged from eighth to second by completion of the first lap of the pure stock feature. He chased Tony Catlett until passing him for the lead on the fourth lap and pulling away from the five-car battle for second.

Krazy Kenny Thomas and Kenny Thomas battled in the final laps of the hobby stock race, with Krazy Kenny Thomas charging by Kenny Thomas in turn 3 of the final lap and winning by two car lengths.
