Hagerstown Hub City Steel Shoe Nationals | Hagerstown Speedway | Saturday, 01. July 2017

Hagerstown Speedway has been an icon in professional flat track for almost 40 years. 2016 marked the first time in 37 years flat track races would not be represented at the storied half mile. Marred by a rain out date in 2015, speedway management tried hard to bring the races back to their fans.

“We’re thrilled to have flat track back at Hagerstown Speedway for July 2017,” Track Manager Lisa Plessinger comments. “When the opportunity to bring the racing back to our fans with the group of people running Steel Shoe Nationals, we couldn’t partner fast enough. The fresh approach and enthusiasm has reignited my passion for (flat track) racing. I am confident the local and national community will fully support the Hagerstown and Octane paring.”

Steel Shoe Nationals promotional team has worked hard to build partnerships with track owners and promoters to ensure a well-founded working relationship
.
“Our goal with Lisa and the Hagerstown, Maryland community is to build a proper working relationship that not only promotes outstanding race action through our series, but a quality venue for fans, riders and teams.” says Steel Shoe Nationals CEO, Christy Cottrell. “We are actively working with the surrounding community and area businesses to encompass a greater marketing footprint in the area and increasing traffic to local businesses. To not have Hagerstown Speedway on the 2016 schedule was a great loss for our sport. We were flattered and honored when they chose the Steel Shoe Nationals for their return to flat track. We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce their race as our first venue to be released for 2017!”

Race date June 30th-July 1st. The two day event will kick off some very new and exciting events leading up to the weekend’s race. Hagerstown Bikefest will be returning for the race week and will be filled with many exciting events throughout the community.
