Andrew Yoder from his outside front row starting spot drove off to the early lead, but just after lap two was complete, point contender JR Toner and Jim Yoder both spun in turn four. This put Toner on the back of the field for the restart, with another point contender Mike Smith. Dylan Yoder moved into second on lap four and was challenging his cousin for the top spot. Tone and Smith were moved towards the front with Smith on spot in front of Toner, in the sixth and seventh spot. They raced that way from lap eight twelve when Toner moved past both Smith and Jim Yoder to move into sixth spot on lap 13. A caution flew on lap 15 for Denny Fourney who needed a wrecker to get back to the pits. On the restart Smith got back around Toner, with things staying that way until lap 20 when JR suffered a flat tire and had to pit. Toner made it back out in time to restart, but could not get Andy closer to Smith who went on to finish fourth and clinch the track title by three points over Toner. Andrew Yoder went on to score the feature win leading all 25-laps. “The track really came around, it was a little wet, but towards the end of the feature it got really nice, and the top was perfect”, said Andrew. “We got the Swartz car back after t was wrecked, and it is a little different, but I am really happy with it”, noted Andrew. Dylan Yoder placed second with Matt Cochran third, then Mike Smith and Jim Yoder. Smith was finally happy to get a track title. “About 20-years ago in the old Thundercar class Wayne peeling beat me out in a close battle, and he was one of the first people to congratulate me, there is a good bunch of guys that race here, and every week it is tough”, stated Mike. Heat races went to Jim Yoder and Cochran.
In the IMC sprint car feature Cale Reigle also led the feature the whole 20-laps to score his second win of the season, while with his ninth-place finish, Kyle Ganoe could win the track title 5-points over Ken Duke.

On that lap, the only caution of the race flew for a blown motor by Dave Guss Jr. This tighten up the field for the restart, but again Cale could drive off for the win. “This car was not good tonight, but I guess everybody else was worst of then me”, noted Cale. Starting up front was key tonight, and that helped us, because I was just waiting for someone to come along and get by us, but it did not happen”, stated Cale. Zach Newlin pulled away late from a battle he and Ken Duke where having for second with Tyler Reeser and Scott Lutz in the top five. Heats went to Newlin and Ganoe.
