A pair of CMS veterans began the night’s 20-lap B-Mod main from row one as Stephen Clancy and Jake Richards led the field to green. Clancy quickly darted out front, bringing Cole Campbell with him along with Terry Schultz and Richards. By lap five, Campbell pressured Clancy for the lead but Clancy kept his machine at the top of the order, through a lap 11 caution period. For the restart, Clancy held the top spot over Campbell, Schultz, Richards, and Jacob Ebert. Another caution slowed the field at lap 13 just as Tim Karrick moved to the top five. When racing resumed, Schultz eventually made his way to second place, behind Clancy. Campbell moved back into the challenge for second by lap 17 as he and Schultz fought hard for the position. By lap 19, Campbell put some pressure on the leader, but in the end, Clancy was able to secure his third victory of the season. Campbell ran a strong second with Schultz third. Brad Smith advanced to finish fourth with Richards rounding out the top five.

Prior feature winners, Jay Prevete and Blaine Ewing earned top starting honors for the 20-lap Super Stock main event, as the pair battled early in the race for the lead. Unfortunately, contact between the two leaders resulted in both drivers being relegated to the tail end of the field for a restart at lap two. Aaron Poe inherited the lead with Cory Flamm and Nathan Vaugn now occupying the top three. Vaughn, fresh off a victory the night before at Electric City Speedway, then moved to the front of the field with Flamm second and James Nighswonger third. By lap seven, it was a three-car breakaway as the top three drove away from the rest of the field. For a moment on lap ten, three drivers raced for the lead, first with Flamm moving forward and then Nighswonger, who did eventually move to the front by lap 11. Soon after, the second yellow flag slowed the field with Nighswonger out front. Marc Carter then became the driver on the move as he advanced from his sixteenth starting position for a spot inside the top three. By lap 15, Carter advanced to second, and then challenged Nighswonger for the top spot. However, on this night, the race belonged to Nighswonger as he secured his first-ever CMS victory. Carter finished a strong second with Vaughn rounding out the top three. Ted Welschmeyer gained five positions by race-end as he moved from ninth to come away fourth, one spot ahead of Ewing, who rallied from his early misfortune to claim fifth.

Polo, Missouri driver Adam Dunwoodie and Cordia’s Dave Meyer earned front-row honors for the Midwest Mods main event; however, Meyer was unable to start the race due to mechanical issues from his heat race despite finishing strongly. Dunwoodie quickly moved to the top of the leader board over Ben Newell as the lead pair put several cars between themselves and third-running Michael Hascall. By lap seven, Dunwoodie began to put the tail end of the field a lap down just as a yellow flag flew. When racing resumed, Dunwoodie led Newell, Alex Dunwoodie, and Kenny Prince, who eventually moved in on Newell for second place. At the halfway marker, caution waved  with Adam Dunwoodie showing the way over Prince, Newell, Dustin Dennison, and Hascall. Lap 15 saw a caution close the field as Dunwoodie held down the top spot. Lap 18 was active as drivers raced hard over the final two circuits, with Prince now leading the field over Dunwoodie and Newell. Prince fought hard to maintain his lead over the final two laps and ultimately grabbed his first-ever CMS victory over Adam Dunwoodie, Ben Newell, Dustin Dennison, and Dayton Newell.

A Feature - 20 Laps - 16:30.572:  1. 447-Kenny Prince[6]; 2. 33D-Adam Dunwoodie[1]; 3. 83-Ben Newell[3]; 4. 5D-Dustin Dennison[7]; 5. 84-Dayton Newell[8]; 6. 31M-Michael Hascall[5]; 7. 65R-Arthur Nicholson[12]; 8. 99-Terry Smith[18]; 9. 08D-Dalton Strohl[14]; 10. 14P-Jonathan Parker[9]; 11.

Rickey Tanner and Payton McDowell led the Pure Stock field to green for the start of the 15-lap main event with Tanner grabbing the early lead. However, McDowell persistently hounded the leader while running second, in front of a close battle between David Doelz and Terry Moss for third. Moss moved to third at lap five as McDowell pressured for the lead at lap seven, and eventually grabbing the top spot a circuit later. McDowell led comfortably, but by lap nine, Moss moved to the top three in the rundown. Moss made his way to second by lap 12 and did all he could to reel in the leader for the win. However, the night once again belonged to Payton McDowell, who took his fourth win of the season with Moss second, birthday boy, Davide Doelz third, Spencer Reiff, fourth, and Ricky Tanner fith.
