Hanover Raceway has been granted a post time change by the AGCO for Saturday, August 1, which is Dream of Glory Day at the track.
The change will move the post time from the originally scheduled 6:15 p.m. to the track’s new regular 2020 post time of 2:00 p.m.
On August 1, Hanover will feature the Dream of Glory final, which is the track’s signature race. Hanover Raceway General Manager Steve Fitzsimmons has said the board felt that given the situation with COVID-19, that moving the post time up was the most sensible course of action.
“Our board waited as long as we could to try and have the traditional fireworks display following our Dream of Glory card, but COVID-19 restrictions will not allow for us to congregate at the present time for such an event. It traditionally draws 5,000 people. They therefore cancelled the fireworks for this season,” Fitzsimmons explained. “With our success to date in the 2:00 p.m. post time slot, we felt that without the fireworks, we would shift our post time back to our regular time this season.”
