Dwayne Gutshall gets first career win in 600 micros

HANOVER, PA, 08/07/04 -- Royersford's Steve Buckwalter picked up his ninth win of the 2004 season in the 250 micro sprint feature race. Buckwalter started in the eighth position and took the lead away from Broc Lawrence on the eighth lap. Buckwalter who is also a regular in the ARDC Midgets, confirmed in victory lane that he will be bringing both his micro sprint and his midget to next weeks racing festivities. Buckwalter hopes to keep up his winning streak at Trail-Way and also take the first ARDC wingless feature win at Trail-Way in the 2004 season.

Lawrence's #76 Jolene's Lawn Care Service micro sprint consistently remained in the second spot. Several time, Brad Weber and Nik Gower would put pressure on the sixteen-year-old driver, but Lawrence blocked well enough to keep away from the rest of the pack. While Gower was racing for position in the top five, he experienced some problems with his car and slowed on the backstretch bringing out a caution. While Gower retired for the night, Lawrence attempted to take the lead away from a very smooth Buckwalter, but was unable to.

Follwing Buckwalter and Lawrence across the line was the Champion Chevrolet sprint car driven by Joe Trone Jr., tenth starter Ken Miller and the Swart Chassis/Rustic Iron micro sprint driven by current points leader Bill Laughman. Weber, Chad Myers, Scott Kishbaugh, Chad Phillips and Charles French Jr., completed the top ten.

Gutshall started on the outside pole and took the lead taking the initial green. Gutshall proceeded to lead all twenty of the laps. Mark Strickler who came into tonight's race fifth in the points took a strong second place finish in hopes to close in on fourth place holder, Shawn Seifert who ended the night in twenty fourth.

Brett Schoenly who started in the twelfth position, crossed the line in third followed by points leader Timmy Dietz in fourth and Sean Campbell completing the top five.

Jimmy Brookens, Davey Sammons, Rick Stief, Jim Glenn and Ron Taggart rounded out the top ten.

Heat winners for the twenty-nine 600's were Schoenly, Gutshall and Taggart. Martin was the consolation winner.
