MARION, Ark. (March 26, 2019) – Derek Hagar isn’t afraid to shake it up, which is exactly what he’s doing this weekend.
Hagar is taking the wings off his sprint car as he heads to Florida for a Southeastern Sprint Car Series doubleheader on Friday and Saturday at Southern Raceway in Milton. It will mark his debut at the track.
“It’s a run-what-you-brung type of event,” he said. “I like non-wing racing. I’m just not equipped to do it all the time. I enjoy it and enjoy doing something different every now and then.”
Hagar last ran his sprint car in a non-wing event in September 2013 when he recorded back-to-back top 10s at his home tracks of I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., and at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.
“We had a good showing when USAC came to Arkansas,” he said. “That was a fun couple of nights. We’ve had some good runs driving for other people as well.”
Hagar most recently raced a non-wing sprint car in September 2016 when he recorded a pair of top fives during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial. He was also victorious in a non-wing sprint car race earlier that year.
“Hopefully we can put together a couple of good nights in Florida this weekend and come away with a win or two,” he said.
