HANOVER, PA, 04/17/04 -- "This 600 class is brutal," remarked Kevin Bastian, the feature winner of the winged micro sprint race. Bastian passed outside polesitter Brandon Little on the seventh lap, pulling away from the rest of the field on every restart, giving him his first career win at Trail-Way Speedway.

"There's no other track that's has guys this fast in the 600's," Bastian continued to talk of Trail-Way's 600 sprint performance. Tonight, there were a few different names in the top five. Little consistently ran in the top five, leading the first 5 laps of the race, and then battling with Timmy Dietz and Shawn Siefert for the second and third positions.

Timmy Dietz who has had to step up to the tough competition, started in the top five but remained there for the entirety of the race. Dietz passed Little for second and began to attempt to pull in leader Bastian, but didn't have enough power to do so.

Shawn Seifert, who started ninth entered into the top ten by the fourth lap. Siefert came into tonight's race third in points behind Gary Hunter in second and Tim Dietz, the points leader. Hunter finished the night ninth, and Tim Dietz finished eighth.

Following Bastian across the line were Timmy Dietz, Siefert, Little and Sean Campbell completing the top five.

Heat winners for the thirty 600 micro sprints in attendance were won by, Tim Dietz, Jimmie Travis and Nathan Ottensmeyer.

Bob Laughman also grabbed his first career win at Trail-Way in the 250 winged micro sprint feature race. Laughman had to hold off tough competition as three-time winner this year, Steve Buckwalter slowly closed in. Buckwalter didn't have enough time as Laughman came across the line and took the checkered flag.

Keith Woodson, Mike Boyer and Nick Schlauch completed the top five. Wayne Karcher, Mike Connors, Brad Weber, Nik Gower and DJ Montgomery completed the top ten.

Heat winner for the twenty-seven 250's were won by Bill Laughman, Steve Buckwalter and Nik Gower.

Former track champion Ed Hollenbach won the first points race of the year for the 4 cylinder stock car division.

"Didn't beat 'em by much," was the response from Hollenbach in victory lane. Following Hollenbach across the line was Jerry Bard, Eric Hollenbach, polesitter Wes Irwin, and Todd Weislander.

Scott Rickrode, Richard Miller, Kenneth Miller, Jeff Walls and Kevin Morgan completed the top ten.

Daryl Hanson picked up the 4 cylinder starlite stock feature win and Buddie Jeffers won the 6 cylinder starlite stock feature.

Brad Kress picked up the scramble car win in a controversial finish. Brian Racine came across the line first but was forced one position for rough riding Kress.
