Default Two S/SS races November 3-4 Hagerstown MD

Two S/SS races in Hagerstown MD on November 3-4. The Annual Mason-Dixon S/SS Fall Classic. My twenty-fourth year in a row going there for this race. And, probably, my final race as a promoter. Two races; the Sunday 11/4 race paying a guaranteed $2,000, or more, to win.

Weekend schedule:

~Friday Nov 2: Parking for early arrivals. They may have a test and tune that day/evening. We should be there early afternoon.

~Saturday Nov 3: Race #1. $50 entry.

~Sunday Nov 4: Race #2. $100 entry; paying at least $2,000 or more to win.

I will have more information in the next few weeks about area motels, restaurants/services, gates/times, etc.

We hope to see you in Hagerstown Maryland the first weekend in November !

The Racers Dinner on Saturday will be at Texas Roadhouse. Same as last year. It is on U.S. 40, same road as the track, about 5-10 minutes from the track.

The Sheetz near the track is closed, and a new one is being built. But will not be open by race weekend,

Duane, Unless they built one since last year, there is no "gate". You can get in there anytime and park if there is no one at the pay booth. You just go up after the pay booth opens, pay, and get your tech card. This has always been a good, well attended race. See you there!

Yes, Mr. Taylor is correct. There is no gate there.

One would think that after twenty-three straight years going to this race I would know better lol.

A few items about the races.

~Both days are random pairing for first round. Cars will be laddered both days for second round based on winning reaction times of round one. If a tie, closest to the dial-in will get the higher spot on the ladder. If still a tie, the racer doing it first will get the higher spot.

~ Bye runs do not have to be made. No taking the tree, breaking the beam, etc. This is from a deal that happened there one year in the semifinals of Super Pro. The first pair ran, there was smoke on the top end. They shut the bye-run car off in the waterbox. All was fine a minute or two later. They told the bye run to restart. The car would not start. So the racer lost on a bye-run to the finals. I thought that was silly so we changed the rule for us the next year. If you come up to get paired up and have the bye, you may return to the pits or remain in the lanes if it is a round-robin situation.

~First round bye run chosen at random on Saturday and best reaction time on Sunday.

~There are no heads-up Class Runs. This is due to lack of scales, fuel check, etc. All cars must dial the Class Index or quicker. IHRA/old NHRA Indexes are used.
