Thunderstorm postpones Hagerstown's WoO event
By Kevin KovacWorld of Outlaws Late Model Series
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (May 31) A torrential morning thunderstorm and a forecast of more heavy rain to come forced the cancellation of Saturday night’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series Conococheague 50 at Hagerstown Speedway. It was the first series rainout of the 2008 season; the tour had completed 12 A-Mains without a weather-related postponement or cancellation.
With the 27th annual‘Conococheague 50 set to be part of the WoO tour for the third consecutive season, tour and speedway officials are discussing a date to reschedule the event. Hagerstown Speedway, of course, holds a historic place in the WoO LMS record books. It is the only track that has held a WoO LMS event in each of the tour’s first six seasons — 1988-1989, and 2004-2007.
WoO regulars will return to action on June 17 at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway, which hosts the opener of the seven-race Great Northern Tour that barnstorms Pennsylvania, New York and two Canadian provinces.
