Dard Stephens was in disbelief when he won a $10,000 raffle Saturday afternoon during the Bonanza Extravaganza at Hagerstown Speedway. The Halfway resident said he has attended the event for the past eight years, but never won anything until this weekend. “I didn't believe it,” Stephens said. “What do you do when you win 10,000 bucks? I guess I'll pay off some bills.” Stephens was one of more than 6,000 people who attended the bonanza on Saturday. The two-day event is held by local firefighters, in part, to raise money for a variety of charities.

Joe and Sondra Rohm said they didn't mind waiting in traffic to sleep in a “swamp” during this year's Bonanza Extravaganza at Hagerstown Speedway off U.S. 40. The siblings said they arrived at the track at around 2 p.m., set up their tents and patiently waited out a Friday rainstorm that turned the camping area into a wet mess. “It's going to be like sleeping in a swamp,” Sondra Rohm said. “But it's not camping unless you're sleeping in a tent.” The Bonanza Extravaganza has been staged by local firefighters for the last eight years to raise money for nonprofit organizations, said John Murray, president of International Association of Fire Fighters Local 1605 Foundation.
