With the front row consisting of Chuck McMahan and Brad Pressley, we saw a great race between those 2 drivers. Pressley took over the race lead on lap 1, with McMahan stalking Pressley for most of the night. James Mitchell however would bring out the Ujunkdit caution early on lap 2 with his solo spin in turn 2. Pressley would remain your race leader through the 2nd Ujunkdit caution on lap 8 as Nick Keeley went around. Pressley would again retain the race lead until lap 12 when McMahan would finally make his way around Pressley. Pressley would then try to mount a run through turns 3 and 4, but Pressley would get tagged and spun by a lap car in turn 3, relegating him to a 6th place finish. McMahan picks up the win, Rocky McNabb will take home 2nd, and Jason Carter rounded out your top 3.

Topless Mods
Heat race winner Keith Gregory and Layne Clifton would be your front row for the feature. The heat race was wild, as at least 3 Ujunkdit cautions slowed the field in the heat. Feature time, the action was a little more tame. Clifton would jump out to the early lead, until Gregory would make his move on lap 2. Clifton would hang onto the 2nd spot until Mike Lewis, who returned from the rear in the heat to finish 3rd, would make his way into the 2nd spot on lap 8. Lewis would stalk Gregory for several laps, but Gregory would open up some breathing room. Then, Mike Lewis would turn on the afterburners and charge up to the rear bumper of Gregory on around lap 14, when lapped traffic slowed Mike Lewis, opening up breathing room to possibly hand the win to Gregory. However, Johnny Ridings would bring out the Ujunkdit caution on lap 16. Mike Lewis would quickly work his way around Gregory on the restart, leading the final 4 laps to take the checkers. Gregory finally shook off his bad luck, finishing in 2nd, and Clifton rounded out your top 3.

Street Stock
Raymond Shepard and Phil Davis led the field to the green flag, but by the time the first lap was completed, Davis had the lead, with Bradly Lewelling in the 2nd spot, and Shepard being dropped back to 3rd. Unfortunately with this one, everyone settled the running order early, and the field ran all 20 laps under the green flag. Phil Davis dominated the field, Lewelling stalked and tried to make a run for several laps, but just didn’t have the car to make the pass, and Shepard came home 3rd.

Adam Engel and Robbie Sands would lead the field to the green flag in this one. Engel would lead the first 4 laps, but Sands would finally make his way around for the lead on lap 4. Robbie Sands would continue to lead while Engel would try to stay glued to the bumper, but finally after the dust had settled, the Ujunkdit caution would never fly in this one as this feature also went 20 laps green flag. Sands takes the win, Engel brings home 2nd, with Phil Blackford holding 3rd from the drop of the green to the checkers.

Super Truck
Clyde Stanton in the #74 truck led the field to the green, with Rocky Ogle on his outside. Stanton wasted no time distancing himself from the field. Ogle would ride in 2nd before Robbie Comer would make the move to take over 2nd on lap 3. The Ujunkdit caution would fly on lap 6 as Steve Hillard would go around. Stanton again wasted no time driving away from the field on the restart. Robert Martin would close in on Rocky Ogle for the 3rd spot, until midway down the backstretch on lap 13 when he would make contact with Ogle, sending Ogle into the infield with 2 flats, ending his night. Martin would join the rear of the field and remain there the remainder of the race. Stanton with the win, Comer with his 3rd-straight 2nd place finish, and Cory Cate came home in 3rd.

Feature Results:
1.(1) #74-Clyde Stanton
2.(4) #42-Robbie Comer
3.(7) #92-Cory Cate
4.(5) #2-Steve Hillard

6.(6) #78-Tom Huston
7.(2) #9-Rocky Ogle

Late Model B-Main
For the B-Main, the top 2 finishers automatically transfer to the A-Main, while the 3rd and 4th place finishers would get the option of taking cash and heading to the house, or running the A-Main. Brian Hooks and Heath Alvey would lead the field to the green flag. Hooks would quickly take the lead, with Heath Alvey wanting more than 2nd. He would be all over the rear spoiler of Hooks until Alvey would spin in turn 4 on lap 3 to bring out the Ujunkdit caution. That would move Greg Estes into the 2nd spot, with rookie Dustin Cansler, making his first trip to 411, would find himself in the 3rd spot, with Date Watson in the final transfer spot. Alvey would line up in the last spot, but would work his way back into the final transfer spot. Hooks with the win, Estes comes home 2nd, Cansler takes 3rd and Alvey comes home in 4th. Both Cansler and Alvey transferred to the A-Main.

Late Model A-Main
The action in the Late Model division was intense, and the sparks flew early and often. Ryan King set fast time with a blistering lap of 14.154, and elected to start on the outside of the front row for the feature. Brad Lowe would start on the inside. Lowe and King would have a couple of incidents on the first 2 attempts to go green, eventually sending King to the pits for repairs. He would restart on the tail, as track rule states if you go to the pits, you must restart on the rear. Your new front row would be Lowe and Josh Henry. Josh Henry would put on a clinic, holding off Brad Lowe until Anthony White would make his way around Lowe a little while later. White would stalk Henry the next few laps, until White would spin in turn 4 from the 2nd spot. As Henry and Lowe would battle it out, White would work his way up through the field through the remainder of the feature. Due to the time limit being met, the feature was shortened to 25 laps under the last Ujunkdit Caution on lap 21. Josh Collins wasted little time launching into the race lead in turn 2 after the restart. Collins would collect his 2nd feature win, Josh Henry would finish up in 2nd, and Brad Lowe would come home in 3rd.

Feature Results:
1.(6) #63-Josh Collins
2.(4) #B00-Josh Henry

Dalton King and Shawn Henry would lead the field to the green flag in this one. King would lead wire-to-wire. However, with a few laps to go, Shawn Henry would make contact with King while challenging for the lead, sending both drivers into the infield. As the track officials scattered, Henry would avoid the pack truck and the Topless Mods sitting in the infield, while Dalton King couldn’t get stopped in time and slammed head-on into the pack truck. Dalton King however would re-claim the lead by track rules, easily going onto the win. Shawn Henry takes 2nd, and 3rd went to Tommy Metler.

Feature Results:
1.(1) #51-Dalton King
2.(2) #0-Shawn Henry
