B-MAIN FOR HUB-CITY 150 TAKES ON MORE SIGNIFICANCE ON NEW OCT. 12TH
DATE.

HAGERSTOWN, MD. The B-Main that kicks off the postponed Turbo-Blue
Hub-City National 150 takes on a
new and significant meaning on Saturday, October 12th. With eight spots
not yet filled for the 30- car starting
grid in the 150-lap A-Main, the B-Main will fill out the rest of the
field. Since the race was postponed due to
rain on September 21st, a couple drivers who made the field on the first
night may not return due to other
obligations which will open up more opportunities for drivers scheduled
for the B-Main to make the field. Gates
will open at 4 P.M. with racing at 6 P.M. Rain date is set for Sunday,
October 13th at 2 P.M.

B-Mains for the ITSI late models will kick off the program to fill the
remaining eight spots in the 30-car
field. Twenty-two drivers qualified on September 20th as Doug
Burkholder of Chambersburg, PA set fast one-
lap time of 19.057 seconds. Following the B-main will be the Hoosier
Tires Mid-Atlantic 25-lap late model
sportsman feature and Ernie’s Salvage Yard 20-lap Pure Stock feature
with the Hub-City National 150 rounding
out the program. The 150-lap event will pay $10,000 to the winner.

Four former winners of the Hub-City have qualified for the Hub-City
150. Nathan Durboraw has three
Hub-City 150 wins, 1990,1992, 1996; Rick Eckert, 1995, 1995; Todd
Andrews, 1999, 2001 and D J Myers,
2000. Gary Stuhler, who has won every major race at Hagerstown, is still
looking for his first Hub-City 150
victory.
