HANOVER, PA, 08/02/03 - After 4 years of hard racing, pole sitter Ron Taggart found his way to victory lane. Taggart's "Taggart Homes" sponsored machine led all 20 laps of the 600 micro sprint feature. 11th starter Duane Harbaugh fought his way through a field of tough drivers to challenge Taggart for the lead. On lap 18, Harbaugh passed Taggart for the lead as the red flag came out, giving Taggart the lead once again.

Harbaugh finished second, followed by York's Tim Dietz in third, fifth place starter Dusty Heistand in fourth and Martinsburg, West Virginia's Chad Criswell completing the top five.

Heat winners for the 26 "600" sprints in attendance were Timmy Dietz, Ron Taggart, Dusty Heistand, and consolation winner Chris Arnold.

"If I keep on getting top fives, I'll have to get a win sooner or later," said 250 Micro sprint race winner Bill Laughman. Laughman dominated the entire 20-lap feature.

"Starting up in the front definitely helped," said Laughman talking about his sixth place start. Two early cautions involving several cars caused two complete restarts. In addition to the complete restarts, several drivers were moved up several positions. Following Laughman across the line were Joe Trone Jr, Keith Woodson, Wayne Karcher and Steve Buckwalter completing the top five.

Heat winners for the 37 "250" sprints in attendance were Mike Boyer, Keith Woodson, Steve Buckwalter and Joe Trone Jr. Brett Arndt and Nick Schlauch Jr. won the consolation events.

The 4 cylinder stocks have only run five races this year, due to rain cancelling several races on the schedule. The thing that makes this year so special for the 4 Cylinder class would be that to date, Arlin Brougher remains undefeated. Brougher continues to shine in both heat races and features. Richard Miller, Scott Rickrode, Kenneth Miller and Michael Haag completed the top five

Heat winners for the 4 cylinder stocks were Ed Hollenbach and Arlin Brougher.

Jimmy Combs picked up the 4 cylinder scramble car feature win, and Scott Fisher picked up the 6 cylinder scramble feature win. Randy Crunkilton picked up the feature win in Starlite oval competition, and Rick Weaver grabbed a win in the Figure 8 race.
