STEVE BUCKWALTER GRABS 2nd STRAIGHT 250cc MICRO WIN

HANOVER, PA, 4/9/05 -- No one can seem to stop the "Royersford Rocket", Steve Buckwalter. Buckwalter exited the 2004 season at Trail-Way Speedway with the most wins of all of the weekly racing divisions. In 2005 Buckwalter came to Trail-Way a veteran driver after only one full season of racing at the track. He won the opening day race easily. Saturday, he made it two times in a row, taking the checkered flag for the 20-lap 270cc micro sprint feature race. Buckwalter led all 20 laps of the feature race.

Wernersville's Pete Skias remained close to Buckwalter at all times, coming closest with two laps to go. Skias pulled up to Buckwalter with as small as a half of a car length separating the two. Skias attempted to pass Buckwalter, but was unable to pull below him to advance to the lead.

Eleventh starter Jacob Hartlaub drove a fantastic race, pulling into the top five by the first five laps. Hartlaub put pressure on 12th starter Jay Hartman and made the pass on the 14th lap.

Hartman followed behind Hartlaub to take the fourth place finish. Taking the fifth spot was the 2004 "250" micro sprint champion, Billy Laughman

Completing the top ten was Ross Robinson, Eric Eckert, Brad Weber, Bruce Buckwalter, and Craig Myers.

Heat winners were Jeff Hartman, Jay Hartman, Chad Myers, Heath Hehnly.

Shawn Seifert made an early race pass on polesitter Dwayne Gutshall to take his first win of the 2005 season. Lapped traffic became a factor towards the end of the race, but Seifert admitted having a good starting position is what helped him the most.

On opening day, Seifert experienced mechanical problems but quickly jumped back to start the points season off well.

Following Seifert across the line was Gutshall, fourth starter Kyle Whalen in an impressive run, 17th starter Bill Gawler and Jake Murphy rounding out the top five.

To ten finishers included, Tim Dietz, Jamie Durboraw, Rick Stief, Glenn Heverin, and the 2004 "600" micro track champion Sean Campbell.

In Legend car racing, a one-lap shootout declared Allen Felix the victor.

Richard Eck won the 4 cylinder starlite feature race, while took the checkered flag in the 6 cylinder starlite division.
