NEWBERRYTOWN, PA (September 5, 2004) - Danny Hagar scored his fourth career Susquehanna Speedway Park Super Sportsman win in the Credit Connection Auto Sales / Trail Motors Night at the Races on Sunday evening's 25-lap feature event. Other winners include Kory Sites in the Silver Springs Street Stock event, and Ed Hollenbach swept double features for the PA Four Cylinders.
Front row starter Danny Hagar led the 25-lap Super Sportsman feature from start to finish and kept just enough room between him and second place finisher Pat Cannon to remain unchallenged for the lead. Pat Cannon started sixth and moved his way to second on lap 15. Pat's brother Steve Cannon finished third after starting third. Frankie Herr and Smokey Snelbaker completed the top five. Heat wins went to Danny Hagar, Steve Cannon, Rich Eichelberger and Bob Fannasy won the consolation.
In the 20-lap event for the Silver Springs Street Stocks presented by Miller Racing Parts, Kory Sites used the high lane to power past early leader George Eash on lap 16 and go on for the win. Craig Morgan, after starting eighth, charged up to grab the runner-up spot while Eash finished third. Stan Wanner and Bob Scott, Jr. rounded out the top five. Heat wins went to George Eash and Bob Scott, Jr.
In the first of two PA Four Cylinder feature events presented by Wentzel's Auto Body of Myerstown, PA, Ed Hollenbach led from the start to pick up the win over Jerry Bard who pursued him the whole way. Bard trailed Hollenbach by less than a car length the entire event but could not find the opportunity to make the winning pass. Leroy Long started tenth and moved all the way to third. Ronnie Buck and Grant Adams rounded out the top five.
In the second event for the PA Four Cylinders, Ed Hollenbach moved to the inside of Jerry Bard on the second lap and went on to grab his second feature win of the night. Ronnie Buck came from seventh starting spot for a second place finish, with Jerry Schott, Jr., Brian Michael and Kyle Levengood rounding out the top five. Heats went to John Stoll, Jr., Ed Hollenbach and Jerry Bard with Tim Burkholder picking up the consolation victory.
