Eight-time Hagerstown champ dies at 63
Nathan Durboraw, one of the winningest Late Model drivers in the history of his hometown Hagerstown Speedway, died Saturday after a battle with lung cancer. He was 63.
A 72-time winner at Hagerstown’s half-mile oval had eight career Super Late Model titles and three in the Limited Late Model division.
“Your life here will not be forgotten,” the track tweeted. “We will miss you. Condolences to his loving family and hundreds of fans.”
Durboraw captured his 11 track titles between 1979 and 2005 was among the Mid-Atlantic’s most successful dirt racers during that stretch. Driving for car owners including Raye Vest and Jack Bland, Durboraw was a multitime winner of Hagerstown’s biggest events, including the Conococheague (1988 and ’92), Hub City 150 (1990, ’92 and ’96) and Octoberfest (1989).
His 72nd and final victory at Hagerstown came April 4, 2009. He was a two-time winner on the Short Track Auto Racing Stars circuit.
