Zimmerman once again lead the field to the restart as Lowell Bennett and Prunty race back and forth for second spot until Bennett moved around Prunty and charged at Zimmerman.

Zimmerman held off Bennett through lap traffic to claim the Mac Tools half way challenge although he was tapping on the bumper of the front runner. Bennett began to work on the inside of Zimmerman for the lead but was shut down by a lap car in the way. Bennett pushed up to the top grove with a slick move to hold his second spot and take the lead from Zimmerman with Prunty to follow behind.

Al Schill moves up to take on Zimmerman along with fast charging Eric Fransen to all battle for third place. With nine laps to go Prunty passes Bennett hard and high on the track to take over the lead on lap 71.

Brian Holtz won the 30 lap modified feature over Steve Lurvey and the new comer Dan Jung. Holtz had everything going his way most of the event as he survived a caution at the half way mark involving five cars and pulled out to a six car length advantage only to see a late caution on lap 19 to bunch up the field.

Holtz pulled away from Lurvey as Dan Jung began to fight for second only to end up in third with Lenny Gallenberg and Dale prunty to follow. Jung also claimed a first place victory in the Eldorado Trailer Sales Fast Dash while Jeff Holtz walked away with a fast time of 12.527 seconds.

Starting from the pole position in the Stinger feature Kurt Brown pulled ahead until Nathan Fick and Joe DeStefano Sr. caught up working both sides of him. At lap ten the caution flew when contact between three cars sent the leader spinning to the infield from oil that was laid down on the track from another competitor.

DeStefano Sr. led the field to the restart as Paul Wagner muscles through lap traffic to get to DeStefano and passes him on the outer groove to take the lead. Roger Schmid won the third spot, with Bill Shavlick, and Pat McIntee to round out the top five. DeStefano also won the first 8 lap heat and Jay Bleskan won the second while Wagner set fast time at 13.424.
