The initial start of the Super Sportsman event say Wade Watson and Allen Haskins spin for the first yellow before the first lap was complete. Ben Burgess Jr. from his fourth starting spot led the first circuit followed by a spin by pole starter Clint Haskins for yellow number two. Watsonís bad luck continued with a spin on the restart collecting Haskins for yellow three. One lap was completed then Allen Yarbrough spun for yellow four. Burgess nearly spun on the restart and Jake Eller became the new leader with five laps complete. Point leader Dan Nocero Jr. was hanging on Ellerís bumper when yellow five happened ending the race night for Allen Haskins. One lap later Watson spun ending his night. At the crossed flags Eller led Nocero by a car length with Burgess third and Tim Card fourth. Yarbrough and Ron Burgun tangled with nine completed laps sending Yarbrough to the pits. On the start Card, Jim Kibbe and Clint Haskins tangled for caution eight. Jake Eller was judged jumping the start and the race was finished with Nocero the winner.

John Volpe ended up facing the wrong direction on the initial start of the Super Late Model feature as last yearís champ Dutch Davies led with Scott Gurdak along side. Jordan Eck spun his Dad at the end of the first lap for caution two. Davies, Gurdak, Dick Barton, Randy Lobb and Darrell Bossard were the leaders. Lobb pressed the inside on the start locking fenders with Gurdak for yellow three sending both to the rear of the field for the restart. Doug Eck collected Rich Gardner and Jordan Eck for yellow four on the restart. The race finally settled down after the fourth caution and Davies began to build a lead over Bossard and Barton in second and third. Greg Oakes passed Barton with six laps down for the number three spot as Davies was out in front by nearly a full straight away lead. Oakes caught Bossard with eleven laps complete but struggled to get by while Davies cruised nearly a half a lap ahead. With nine laps remaining Davies caught the tail end of the field but still continued to build his lead. With three laps remaining Lobb spun high in turn three setting up a three lap dash for the win and allowing Bossard and Oakes to close with Davies. Davies ran the final three unchallenged as neither Oakes or Bossard could mount a challenge.

Gary Eicher and Ron Seeley made up the front row for the UEMS Quincy Turner Memorial. The first lap ended with Alex Froman and Greg Johnson stopped between turns three and four. Carl McKinney went from third to first on the restart then one lap later four cars tangles including, Dave Shagla, UEMS point leader Greg Johnson, Kirk Bradley and Shane Crotty. McKinney remained the leader and Steve Dixon moved up alongside Eicher for third and Dave Hess Jr. in fourth from his tenth starting spot. Hess continued to move forward taking second from Seeley with ten laps completed. Hess caught McKinney on lap fourteen and nearly beat McKinney to the line then made it stick one lap latter. Dan Davies was in third with Dixon fourth, Seeley fifth and Randy Hall sixth. Davies took second from Kinney on lap twenty just before Johnson and Brian Douglas causing caution three. Johnson and Douglas continued the altercation after the caution which ended with both race cars hooked together and both drivers disqualified. Davies charge ended after the restart with obvious right rear wheel problems. Hess easily out distanced the field over the final four laps for the win successfully defending his win in the event last year.

Chad Schauers sat on the pole and led the first lap of the Limited Late feature with Chris Ottaway in second and Jake Finnerty third. Ryan Scott pushed Finnerty back to fourth with eight laps complete setting his sights on Ottaway. The first yellow occurred for a broken John Cline Jr. with nine completed laps. Finnerty nearly spun in lap ten losing several spots as Steve Kania settled in to fourth. Ottaway move up to try Schauers on the outside but lost his spot Scott. Scott tried tucking under Schauers and with two to go nearly made the pass. Kania tested Scott on the next circuit then fell back and on the final lap Scott moved under Schauers crossing the start finish line side by side. Schauers got the scorers nod for his first win.

Max Blair sat on pole and won the charge into one for the Crate Late Model feature lead. The first yellow flew for a slow car on lap three. Damien Bidwell was second followed by Kyle Scott and Brad Mesler. A four car incident involved John Lacki, Garrett Mott, Rob Bates and Justin Tatlow slowed the event with two laps down. Three more laps were complete then the third yellow appeared this time for Skip Jackson. Dereck Frank caused the fourth yellow one lap later. At the half way point Blair was out in front nearly a straight away. Lap cars temporarily slowed Blair with six laps remaining. With four laps to go Paul Himes stopped facing the wrong direction in turn one for caution five. Blair notched his second victory of the season.

Lance Palmer failed to negotiate turn one on the initial start of the Street Stock feature. On the restart Guy Adams, Kyle Weilacher, Todd Bacon and Jeff Keith piled up in turn one for the second caution. Pat Fielding, Chris Withers, Gary Fisher and Jason Covey were the race leaders. Withers passed Fielding on the high side on lap four just before the yellow flew for a slow car in turn four. Withers, Fisher, Fielding and Covey were the restart leaders. Early leader Fielding was pushed in to the infield by Covey for caution four and Covey was sent to the rear for the restart. James Britt caused caution five one lap later.
