In Mountain Dew Sportsmen, Nathan Ballard scored his second trip to victory lane of the night as he collected the checkered flag ahead of Bob Ahrendsen. Greg Hentrich finished third while point leader Dave McCalla crossed the stripe in seventh.
Finally, point leader Brian Gibson survived a multi-lap side-by-side battle with Tim Plummer to secure the feature win in Carpetland USA Late Models presented by Performance Concepts. Brad Osborn finished third.
