Rookie Jacob Zellner raced past Rick LeMieux on lap 4 to take charge in the IMCA Sport Mod main event. Zellner then pulled away from the field until a caution at the midway point the bunched the field. While under caution Bernie Reinhardt had a tire go flat, he went laps down while on pit lane costing him the point lead. Again Zellner zoomed away from the pack. Josh Massart worked to the runner up position and began chopping away at Zellers’s lead. Massart hounded the leader lap after lap. With just 3 laps remaining Massart ducked under Zellner and took the top spot. Massart motored away from the pack to pick up the win in front his family and friends. Massart dedicated the win to his Grandma. Randy LeMieux Jr. placed second and took over the point lead.

Bret Koehler quickly slipped by Scott Reinhardt taking the lead of the IMCA Stock Car feature. Troy Muench quickly worked to second and began pressuring the leader with Dave Bouche giving chase. At the cross flags Muench ducked inside of Koehler coming out of turn 4 and heavy contact was made. The duo locked horns all the way down the front stretch and when it ended Billy LeMieux, Muench and Reinhardt headed to pit lane with flat tires as the caution waved. Fans erupted with a chorus of cheers and boos. Koehler was deemed part of the caution handing lead over to Dave Bouche. Bouche held off the advances of Shawn Havel the remainder of the event, going on to score the win. Bouche’s win awarded him an extra point over Havel in the title chase, Jamie Suchocki placed a strong third, Muench rallied to fourth and Tony Bouche was fifth.
