HANOVER, PA, 04/10/04 -- For the second time in 2004, Timmy Dietz found his way into victory lane in the 600 winged micro sprint division. Timmy led the final eight laps of the race, bringing the D & K Siding machine back into the front taking the win.

Bill Gawler led the first twelve laps of the race, giving up the lead to Dietz who had his car set up to be dominant on the long runs. Dietz complained of being tight in the beginning but improved in the latter part of the race.

Four-time winner this year, Jimmy Brookens, maneuvered his Mary Ann Snyder Hair Design machine through the field, from a tenth place starting position up to the runner up position. Due to lapped traffic, Brookens was unable to contend for the lead.

During a first lap caution, polesitter Tracy Gauger collided with the first and second turn wall. Other cautions included a jumble collecting Ben Murphy, DJ Montgomery and Jim Glenn also in the first and second turns. Murphy was the only driver who retired early for the evening.

Following Dietz across the line were Brookens, Gawler, the SC Signs & Designs machine driven by Sean Campbell, and Mark Strickler's Workshop/Polaris Inc. sprint car. Chad Criswell, Kevin Bastian, Rick Stief, Brett Schoenly, and Tim Dietz completed the top ten.

In 250 winged micro sprint action, Nik Gower picked up his first win in the 17-lap shortened feature race. The race was shortened from 20 laps to 17 due to time limits.

"The car was fast from the get-go," Gower exclaimed about his car. Gower passed leader Chris Melton on the eleventh lap. Melton led from the beginning of the feature until Gower took over.

Following Gower across the line was Cody Darrah, the Red Drill/Fletcher's Racing Fuel sprint driven by Mike Connors, Bill Laughman who picked up the makeup win from May 15th earlier in the evening, and Nick Schlauch Jr. driving the S & S Tire & Auto racing machine. Jacob Hartlaub, Dave Williams, Joe Hood, Jeff Hoover, and Jeff Leisey completed the top ten.

In vintage car action, Tom Swanger from Enola, PA picked up the win in the modified division and Gary Felty out of Cleona, PA picked up the sportsman division.

In starlite stock action, 14-year-old Kyle Martin picked up his first career win in the 6 cylinder divison. In the 4 cylinder division, Frank Trail Jr. grabbed his first career win as well.

Brian Racine picked up the scramble car win.
