HANOVER, PA, 08/28/04 -- With one hundred forty-eight cars in the pits this evening and a chance of an isolated thunderstorm possible, Trail-Way Speedway maneuvered quickly through the racing program in search of new winners or even a familiar face that hasn't seen victory lane in a while. Bob Laughman went on to become one of those familiar faces as he took the checkered flag making his record two wins in the 2004 race season.

Polesitter Chalres French Jr. took the lead at the first sight of the green but was passed on lap four by a hard charging Laughman. With four laps remaining, Laughman's car become loose, allowing Eric Eckert to close in on Laughman's Rustic Iron Hair/Tanning Salon #7 sprint car. With two to go Eckert lost momentum, allowing Laughman to regain the lengthy lead he previously held.

Following Laughman and Eckert across the line were current points leader Bill Laughman, Nik Gower, Jim Still, Chad Myers and fifteenth starter Brian Kishbaugh rounding out the top seven.

Nine-time race winner in the 2004 season, Steve Buckwalter experienced problems in his heat race, causing him to compete in the consolation event. Buckwalter won the consolation race and started twenty-second in the feature race. Buckwalter ended his night eighth followed by French and Jacob Hartlaub completing the top ten.

Heat winners were Bob Laughman, Mike Midkiff, French and consolation winner Buckwalter.

In 600 winged micro sprint action, Scott Glover Jr. took his first career win in the 20-lap feature race. The 14 year old out of Richboro, PA lead all 20 laps of the race.

York's Mark Strickler put pressure on Glover several times trying to maneuver himself around the quick #14 racing machine. Strickler tried the outside but was unable to gain any ground. Strickler then tried the outside coming into the first turn and was successful until Glover took the lead away from him as soon as they came out of the second turn. Glover maintained the first position coming across the line. Strickler raced side by side with Glover across the line, giving him second place by only inches.

Completing the top five were Jim Glenn, Sean Campbell and DJ Montgomery. Timmy Iulg, Rick Steif, Tim R. Dietz, Jimmy Brookens, and Bill Gawler rounded out the top ten

Heat winners were Randy Reid, Glenn, Shawn Seifert, and consolation winner Jamie Durboraw.

Port Murray, New Jersey's Jason Walsh came to Trail-Way Speedway as an underdog. Walsh, who does not normally race at Trail-Way shined brightly in a field of experienced 4 cylinder stock car drivers. Walsh led only the last lap of the race but took the lap that counted the most.

Richard Miller who lead from the drop of the green was passed by Ed Hollenbach but regained the lead by the seventh lap. Walsh passed Miller when lapped traffic became a factor.

Following Walsh and Miller across the line were Jon Walsh, John Salter Jr., and Michael Spinks.

Heat winners were Ed Hollenbach and Patrick McLanigan.

In Starlite stock car action, Buddie Jeffers took the 6 cylinder win and Chris Myers got the 4 cylinder feature win.

For the fourth time in 2004, Brad Kress pickedup the scramble car feature win. Kress passed Brian Walls on the fifth lap and lead the final seven laps to take the checkered flag.
