HAGERSTOWN Spoken over the growl of powerful engines, the words of one Hagerstown race car driver drifted into a strong wind. Alan Sagi, a 42-year-old veteran, was looking for a little Opening Day magic Sunday at Hagerstown Speedway. "I've won on Opening Day three times. I'd like to make it four today," Sagi said. Two divisions of cars raced on the dirt track west of the city. Outside the gates, hundreds of spectators' cars and trucks bore plates from near and far. Stan Dillon, who handles publicity for the track, estimated that about 1,200 people came to see the first races of the year.

Donna Guessford was asleep when a man entered her unlocked pickup truck parked in front of her Spielman Road home and stole her cassette player. The thief went on to enter and ransack her boyfriend's two cars parked nearby. "I didn't hear a thing. The air conditioning was on and it's hard to hear from the bedroom," she said. Her boyfriend Phil Gift noticed the items taken when he left the house to drive to work around 6 a.m. Wednesday, she said. She was angry when she saw what happened, said Guessford, 38. "There's no sense in taking something that doesn't belong to you," she said.

HAGERSTOWN -- Seven catalytic converters were stolen from seven vehicles parked at Spanky's Used Car Sales & Auto Repair at 2000 Jefferson Boulevard, the Washington County Sheriff's Office said Sunday. The converters were stolen from the cars between Thursday and Saturday, police said. The pollution-reducing converters contain platinum and palladium, and have become highly valuable as metal prices climb, officials have said. Thieves sometimes use battery-operated saws to cut the converters from beneath cars, and they can get up to $300 for the devices, police have said.
