Kenny Jacobs (9th car out time) set quick time at 13.687 seconds. Ed Lynch Jr. (15th car out) was second quick, followed by Joey Saldana (4th), Dale Blaney (3rd), Jimmy Stinson (5th), Danny Lasoski (7th), Jac Haudenschild (12th), Lucas Wolfe (2nd), Brock Mayes (11th) and Dustin Daggett (10th). The track dried quickly and the turn two cushion went to the wall in a hurry. Many tempted the wall, but no one hit it until Rob Chaney did. Despite a hard hit, he stayed on all four wheels. Paul McMahan also tagged it with his right rear and had to bring the car in to make repairs. Both took one lap at the end of qualifying, but late qualifiers were out of luck. Jacobs drew a five for the heat invert.

Heat one (started): 1. Craig Dollansky 7 (2) 2. Jason Meyers (3) 3. Haudenschild 35 (4) / 4. Steve Kinser 11 (6) 5. Jacobs 29 (5) 6. Brandon Martin 11m / 7. Chad Blonde 5B (8) 8. Lee Jacobs 75 (7) 9. Rob Chaney 24H (9)

Dollansky led the 10 lapper from flag to flag. There was not much action other than Haud outdueling Kinser early for the final transfer early on. The heats took the top three to the A, the next three to the B, and the rest to the C. Heat winners made the dash. The heats saw mostly single-file racing with the only real groove being the cushion.

Heat two (started): 1. Chad Kemenah 8K (2) 2. Wolfe 5w (4) 3. Brian Paulus 28 (1) / 4. Chad Hillier 5c (6) 5. Lynch 2L (5) 6. Justin Henderson D1 (3) / 7. Kevin Huntley 9x (7) 8. Bill Rose 6R (9) 9. Bruce White 96au (8)

Kemenah led the duration. Wolfe used a strong start to shoot under Paulus early for an A transfer.

Heat three (started): 1. Brandon Wimmer 7TW (3) 2. Saldana 9 (5) 3. Dean Jacobs 7K (1) / 4. Paul May 71m (8) 5. Tony Bruce Jr. 18T (2) 6. Jason Sides 7s (7) / 7. Sam Hafertepe Jr. 15H (6) 8. Barry Ruble 63 (9) 9. Mayes 11B (4)

Wimmer led flag to flag after D. Jacobs was black-flagged on the initial start. Saldana passed D. Jacobs for second on lap four. Mayes exited on lap four.

Heat four (started): 1. Kerry Madsen 11H (2) 2. Danny Smith 4 (1) 3. Blaney 2B (5) / 4. Tim Shaffer 6 (3) 5. Daggett 2m (4) 6. Shane Stewart 8H (6) / 7. Randy Hannagan 1x (8) 8. Brooke Tatnell 2 (7) DNS - Mark Aldrich 1a

Smith jumped out to an early advantage. Madsen trailed on his nerf bar and made a winning move with a lap eight slider. Blaney had a good start, shooting by Shaffer and grabbing third.

Heat five (started): 1. Jason Solwold R19 (1) 2. Terry McCarl 24 (4) 3. Paul McMahan 20 (7) / 4. Jason Martin 36 (8) 5. Ryan Myers 56R (2) 6. Stinson 92 (5) / 7. Lee Stark 16 (6) 8. Stevie Smith 19 (3)

Solwold left the field on lap one, while a wild jumble bunched up McMahan who slowed in front of McCarl. S. Smith was caught off guard, making contact with McCarl and spinning. He exited thereafter. McCarl would track down McMahan on lap four and take second.

Heat six (started): 1. Donny Schatz 15 (2) 2. Jeremy Campbell 10c (4) 3. Daryn Pittman 21 (1) / 4. Greg Wilson w20 (7) 5. Lasoski 83 (5) 6. Brian Ellenberger 20E (3) / 7. Dion Hindi 11D (6) 8. Brian Carlson 18 (8)

Schatz led a mostly single-file event flag to flag.

C main (started): 1. Hannagan (4) 2. Huntley (2) 3. Blonde (1) 4. L. Jacobs (7) / 5. Hafertepe (3) 6. Hindi (6) 7. Rose (8) 8. Chaney (11) 9. Carlson (10) 10. Mayes (13) 11. Ruble (9) 12. White (12) 13. Stark (5) DNS - Tatnell, S. Smith, Aldrich

Huntley took off early in the 12 lapper. Hannagan started using the middle of the track to gain ground and slid under the leader coming for the white flag. L. Jacobs got by Hafertepe for the final transfer at the halfway point.

Dash (started): 1. Schatz (1) 2. Solwold (2) 3. Madsen (3) 4. Kemenah (5) 5. Wimmer (4) 6. Dollansky (6)

Schatz was blacked on the initial start and sent to row two, but returned to the pole when Madsen did the same thing. Schatz led flag to flag.

B main (started): 1. Kinser (1) 2. Lasoski (12) 3. Hillier (2) 4. Wilson (6) / 5. J. Martin (5) 6. Stewart (16) 7. May (3) 8. Bruce (9) 9. Stinson (17) 10. Blonde (21) 11. Daggett (10) 12. Huntley (20) 13. Sides (15) 14. Ellenberger (18) 15. Myers (11) 16. B. Martin (13) 17. Hannagan (19) 18. L. Jacobs (22) 19. Henderson (14) 20. Shaffer (4) 21. K. Jacobs (7) 22. Lynch (8)

Henderson smacked the wall before a lap could be completed, and made repairs to restart. Shaffer had a bad start hopping Hillier's tire and losing several spots. With the top two qualifiers not making it through to the main event locked into the feature, K. Jacobs and Lynch went pitside early. Kinser led early, while Lasoski got a good jump on the start gaining seven spots. The only red of the night came out on lap 14 when B. Martin got upside down while running tenth. Kinser led Hillier, Lasoski, Wilson and May back to green flag racing. Lasoski sniped Hillier on the final four laps. Stewart had a great run, but still came up two spots short. J. Martin made a late bid on Wilson, who was also closing in on Hillier.

A main (started): 1. Schatz (1) 2. Meyers (7) 3. McCarl (11) 4. Solwold (2) 5. Saldana (9) 6. McMahan (17) 7. Dollansky (6) 8. Haudenschild (13) 9. Kemenah (4) 10. Paulus (14) 11. Lasoski (20) 12. Blaney (16) 13. D. Smith (10) 14. Kinser (19) 15. Pittman (18) 16. Wilson (22) 17. Campbell (12) 18. Wimmer (5) 19. Hillier (21) 20. Wolfe (8) 21. D. Jacobs (15) 22. Lynch (24) 23. Madsen (3) 24. K. Jacobs (23)

Dollansky shot out to an early lead in the 40 lapper. The track was slick from top to bottom, but no rubber developed resulting in multiple lines for operating. By lap six, Schatz had caught the leader and passed him. He pulled away leaving a good battle between second and sixth. Solwold followed Dollansky, ahead of Madsen, Meyers, McCarl and Saldana early. The six stayed in close contact until Madsen's left rear tire blew on lap 23. At the time, Schatz's lead was over 6 seconds, as he led Dollansky, Solwold, Meyers, McCarl and Saldana back to green flag racing. Dollansky tagged the frontstretch wall shortly thereafter and would fade to seventh the final 17 laps. McCarl finished a good run in third. He used a lower line than most on both ends. Schatz's margin of victory was 7.8 seconds ahead of Meyers. McMahan was the hard-charger moving up 11 spots.

360s

B main one (started): 1. Darren Long 7L (1) 2. Ron Blair 35 (3) 3. Mike Miller 82 (2) 4. Scott Carter 55 (5) 5. JR Stewart 37s (8) / 6. Andy Conley 14c (7) 7. Cory Seeling 97 (4) 8. Mark Grabill 50 (9) 9. Tim Perry 36 (6) 10. Aaron Shaffer 22s (10)

The continuation of a two-day show saw two 12-lap B mains qualify the top five to the A main. Long dominated this one. Miller was off to a very slow start and dropped back to seventh, but used the low side after a reworked track to surge back to third. Stewart grabbed the final transfer from Conley with two to go.

B main two (started): 1. Dwain Leiber 62 (8) 2. Kevin Huntley 7c (3) 3. Ben Rutan 23 (12) 4. Tim Allison 11 (2) 5. Luke Hall 34 (5) / 6. Gregg Dalman 49T (4) 7. Brent Vonk 21V (11) 8. Doc Sloan D12 (13) 9. Randy Fusi 46FU (6) 10. Jeremy Stambaugh 1J (10) 11. Bob Carmen 10 (9) 12. Adam West 30 (7) 13. Lucas Wolfe 13K (1)

Wolfe led until falling out on lap three. Huntley inherited the lead, but succumbed to a bottom running Leiber, who won going away from row four. Rutan grabbed third in the last corner.

A main (started): 1. Dale Blaney 6B (7) 2. Phil Gressman 83 (6) 3. Kent Wolters 9 (2) 4. Jared Horstman 17 (1) 5. Mike Brecht m20 (8) 6. Mike Dussel 6 (5) 7. Leiber (10) 8. Huntley (12) 9. Jeff Williams 5w (3) 10. Long (9) 11. Rutan (14) 12. Carter (15) 13. Stewart (17) 14. Nick Mulheim 38m (4) 15. Seeling (19) 16. Fusi (20) 17. Hall (18) 18. Allison (16) 19. Blair (11) 20. Miller (13) 21. Carmen (21)

Wolters checked out early using the high side of the track ahead of Horstman in the 20 lapper. Blaney moved steadily forward and was in third by the time Fusi spun on lap 15. Wolters led Horstman, Blaney, Gressman and Dussel back to green flag racing. Blaney used the low side to pass Horstman and Wolters for the lead the next lap and held on for the win. Gressman came on late for second.
