Debris caused the second caution on the restart. Chad Carlson became the new leader on the restart then debris slowed the event once more with three laps complete. Carlson, Davis and point leader Kelly Frederes were the leaders. Frederes bested Davis just before the next yellow this time for Chad Schauers. The restart ended in turn two with multi-car incident collecting Schauers, Vogt and Bob Rouche. There were two attempts for the next restart before the green stayed out with Carlson out in front. Paul Himes slowed to a stop just off the speedway causing the next yellow with seven of the twenty laps complete. The eight caution of the event occurred on lap nine with a spin by Jake Finnerty. Finnerty spun again for caution nine. Schauers and Rick Karash tangled for caution ten on the restart. Carlson slowed and stopped at the pit entrance for yellow number eleven turning the lead over to Frederes. Davis was second with Tyler Green third. Twelve of the twenty-two starters remained for the lap twelve restart. The contest was now for second as Frederes easily out distanced the field. A lap sixteen spin by Troy Dorman allowed the field to close with Frederes. Carlson spun Moynihan and earned the black flag as the one to go signal was given to Frederes. Frederes prevailed for his sixth win of the season.

John Lobb and Darrell Bossard won the redraw and the privilege to start on the front row of the Super Late Model feature. Andy Kania had trouble in the exit of turn two on the start collecting Doug Eck. Eck’s car was towed from the speedway and Kania returned to join the end of the field after a brief trip into the pits. John Lobb, Bossard, Randy Lobb, Dutch Davies and Chris Hackett were the leaders. The Lobb brothers lead lap one with John in front and Randy second. Davies and Randy Lobb were fighting for second Dick Barton drove by on the high side to grab the spot. Just one lap later Barton tagged the wall coming out of two then slowed in three for the second caution. Barton pulled into the pits during the caution. After just four laps only fourteen of the original starters remained. John Lobb was in control at the half way mark with a ten car length lead over Davies with Bossard a distant third. Ward Schell lost the handle just past the half way point and during the caution Randy Lobb stalled on the speedway and was helped into the pits. The top four remained the same with John Volpe fifth and Andy Boozel sixth from his eighteenth starting spot. Lobb continued to dominate after the restart and Hackett beat Bossard to third. A smoking Bossard continued to lose spots and Hackett closed with Davies for the runner up spot. Lobb took the checkers and Davies held off Hackett for second.

Todd Hoddick won on the pole for the ASCS Patriot Sprint 25 lap A-Main. Don Adamczyk was second with Bryan Howland third and Tim Kelly fourth. Adamczyk led the first circuit and Kelly the second. Howland used the cushion taking the second spot on lap three as Kelly led. Howland closed with Kelly and was alongside by lap nine just before they entered lap traffic. The first yellow of the event occurred just before the halfway mark for Kyle Moffit. Kelly, Howland, Jared Zimbardi, Adamczyk and Bubba Broderick were the leaders with eleven lap completed. Howland dogged Kelly as they moved away from the third and fourth place cars. Howland made his move on lap eighteen passing on the backstretch. Kelly charged back two corners later but could not make the pass. Bob Reis slowed in front of the leaders on the next circuit and Howland scrapped the wall pass the stalled Reis. Howland was the restart leader with Kelly second and Zimbardi third. Broderick was fourth for the restart. Howland changed his line after the restart moving to the bottom and began pulling away from Kelly. Howland finished nearly a half a straight away ahead of Kelly and Reis spun in the exit of four on the final lap.

Kyle Bedell and Alex Froman brought 28 E-Mods onto the speedway for their feature event. Greg Johnson and Ron Seeley were in row two and Dan Davies and Scott Gurdak were in row three. Bedell was the first back to the start finish line with Johnson second. Johnson led lap three by a nose and was solidly in the lead on lap four. Dan Davies was third and Rich Michael Jr. was fourth. Kyle Bradigan stopped in the exit of turn four with a tractor tire used to mark the infield under the front of his car bringing out the caution flag with six laps complete. Point leader Scott Gurdak pulled into the pits during the caution. Johnson took the outside for the restart and handily led lap seven. Chris Couchenour stopped up against the turn three wall for caution two with nine laps complete. Jaben Hill struggled on the restart for caution three. Michael was third on the restart and took second from Davies when the green fell. Hill and Mike McGee caused caution four at the end of lap ten. Michael did a near spin on lap twelve losing second to Davies. Third in points Justin Carlson pulled into the pits just before the yellow flew for Ben Asel. Sixteen laps were complete four remained. Davies remained up against the fence over the final circuits losing second to the low running Michael on the final lap as Johnson won his second of the season.

A ragged start of the Super Sportsman feature sway Allen Haskins lead from his sixth starting spot. Ben Reed was second and Dan Nocero Jr. was third. John Boardman stopped up against the turn four fence causing the first caution with three laps complete. Haskins was still in front at the half way point with Nocero second and Reed third. Tom Kosinski and Jason Schumaker caused the second caution with five laps remaining. Haskins, Nocero and Ben Burgess Jr. were the leaders. Haskins slipped just a little coming out of turn two and lost the top spot to Nocero. Nocero took the two to go and cruised through the final two circuits for his second win.

A spin by Josh Crull marred the initial start of the Spectator feature. Kevin Golden and Travis Darling were on the front row with Jason Covey and Sam Courson in row two. Debris caused the second caution with no laps completed. Covey led the first round with Golden second and Courson third. Point leader Brandon Groters was third on lap five and the yellow flew for Ken Drake stopped in turn four. Covey, Golden, Groters, Courson and Kyle Weilacher led. Gary Fisher spun for caution four.
