Hagerstown, Maryland-November 13, 2011.
Unlike its scheduled weekend ending with the Trick or Treat snow job of two weeks ago, the postponed Hagerstown Speedway’s 24th Annual Verizon Wireless Octoberfest ended with nice weather to finalize the speedway’s season on Sunday.
Topping his season at 15 overall wins, Vernon, N.J’s Brett Hearn scored the final two after opening the afternoon in a non-stop small block feature with a flag to flag domination victory where he was more than seven seconds ahead at the finish for his ninth overall Octoberfest win. Having won the last three consecutive big block events, he came back later to record a nearly eleven second triumph to give him ten overall victories in both small and big block event features.
Starting ninth, Shinnston, WV’s Josh Richards took control of the late model event on lap 15 and was nearly six seconds ahead when the checkered waved for his first ever Octoberfest victory and his 14th of the season.
Daryn Pittman of Owasso, Ok took advantage of his pole position to lead all the way in the sprint feature to score an Octoberfest win for the first time. It was his 15th win of the season.
