Who We Are?

Our Company

First Lane Timing started in Hagerstown, Md. by brothers James and Michael Simms.  Graduates themselves of the Montgomery County Public School system both brothers compteted in the MPSSAA MD State Track & Field Championships.  Following graduation, the brothers went on to compete in collegiate programs before moving into coaching high school and youth athletes.  With a vision to help low income schools, clubs, and community organizations, First Lane Timing was created to provide professional services at a low reasonable price.    First Lane Timing uses the latest in state of the art equipment to provide an experience that is second to none.

Everyone at First Lane Timing strives to set ourselves apart from our competitors by providing an energetic, reliable, accurate, and professional service.


We provide advanced timing and scoring solutions from professional FinishLynx camera systems.  Fully automatic timing is critical to any track and field, cross country, or road race competition. With hundreths of a second determining place, the human eye is just not good enough.
