Now open for more than a year, Hurlock Auto & Speed Supply is making its presence felt in the Delmarva motorsports world. Growth has been steady for the 3,000-square-foot business.

Hurlock Auto & Speed Supply is a multi-faceted business. On one side is, as Ward terms it, an everyday auto parts store. The other side is a growing section of performance parts for both circle-track and drag racers in addition to truck enthusiasts.

Currently, Hurlock Auto & Speed serves racers with the following product lines/suppliers: Allstar Performance, Behrent’s Performance Warehouse, Bicknell Racing Products (a growing inventory), FK Rod Ends, K&N, Winters, Schaeffer Racing Oil, Wilwood, Jones Racing Products, Fragola, Vahlco Wheels, Weld Wheels and more.

Ward also has the ability to attain truck brands such as Rough Country, Bully Dog and Bushwacker.

Additional brands are expected to be added during the winter months.

“We’re looking forward to expanding our trackside service to Georgetown next season,” said Ward, who will be racing his big- and small-block Modifieds at Georgetown.  “We’ll do our homework and be prepared for the opener both in-store and at the track.”
