The start of this weekend’s Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam show at Hagerstown Speedway was put on hold Friday due to inclement weather, according to the event’s promoter.

“With the rain, it basically made the track undriveable and unsafe for our drivers as well” as less entertaining for the fans, series promoter Ashley Johnson said.

“It’s one of those things where we had to look at it from a safety issue,” she said. “If we did let them drive, it would basically be the trucks getting stuck in the mud the entire time and it wouldn’t be an actual show.”

Friday night ticketholders may use their tickets Saturday or Sunday, which still are scheduled to go on as scheduled, Johnson said.

Today’s show starts at 8 p.m. and Sunday’s show kicks off at 2 p.m.

Tickets may be exchanged in advance at the Hagerstown Speedway box office, or at the gate today or Sunday.

Seats will be honored on a first-come, first-serve basis, Johnson wrote in a news release after Friday’s event was canceled.

Customers who cannot make the shows Saturday or Sunday may call 703-448-4000 or send an email to
