Jon Sheets and Terry Schultz led the field to the green for the $2,000-to-win, 30-lap main event. Sheets led Schultz, Michael Taylor, Tim Karrick, and Sturgis Streeter in the opening circuits until caution slowed the race at lap five. Behind Sheets and Schultz at the front, Karrick advanced to third with Taylor, Stephen Clancy, and Streeter sorting out the next positions. Caution appeared again on lap seven with Sheets leading Schultz and a fast-rising Clancy to third by lap ten. Clancy and Schultz ran several laps side-by-side for the second spot behind Sheets through lap 14 when racing slowed for a caution and restart. By lap 16, Sheets led Schultz, Clancy, Karrick. Clancy moved to second ahead of Schultz at lap 17 just before caution slowed the field at lap 18. For the restart, Sheets led Clancy, Schultz, Karrick, and Taylor. By lap 20, Clancy closed in on Sheets at the top of the order as the top five changed behind the leaders when Taylor slipped over the berm to draw a caution on lap 23. For the restart, Clancy again put heavy pressure on Clancy for the top spot and by lap 25, the pair made it apparent it would be a two-man race to the finish. Schultz had a rare slip over the berm in turn four to draw a caution at lap 28, which set up a two-lap dash to the finish. With Sheets leading the way once green-flag racing resumed, Clancy stayed right with the leader all the way to the finish; however, Sheets was able to seal the deal and claim the top prize with Clancy settling for second place a half car-length back. Karrick scored his best finish of the year at CMS with a third place run with Jacob Ebert advancing late in the race to claim fourth. Chad Clancy advanced from eleventh to round out the top five as Mike Ryun moved up ten spots to claim sixth at the finish.

For the 25-lap Super Stock main, Derek Henson and Tyler Perryman began the race from the front row in another solid outing from this growing in popularity division. Henson powered his way to the top of the rundown from the onset with Perryman holding steady in second staying right with the leader. At lap five, Henson led Perryman, Ted Welschmeyer, Marc Carter, and Blaine Ewing on the racy track. Welschmeyer moved to second ahead of Perryman at lap eight as Henson put distance on the field behind him up front with a 1.7-second lead. At lap 13, Henson began maneuvering his way through lapped cars to continue the torrid pace of the race. The race for third was fierce and close with Perryman, Carter, Ewing, and now Aaron Poe joining in the battle. Ewing went to fourth on lap 17 and third at lap 18. Carter and Poe ran several close laps for the fifth spot with West Plains driver Donnie Miller joining the battle by lap 20. In heavy lapped traffic and with a caution-free 25-lap race in his crosshairs, Henson went on to collect the victory, his first of the year at CMS and second-career track win. Welschmeyer rand a strong second the entire distance with Ewing third. Carter, Poe, and Miller rounded out the top six in the stellar race.

Tanner Kade of Hermitage and Dylon Smith of Belton took top honors to start the 20-lap Midwest Mods main event. Kade immediately took command of the race to leave Smith, Kenny Prince, Dalton Dultmeier, Johnny McGinnis, and tail-starting Devin Wetzel to settle for spots inside the top five. The first of several cautions reset the field on lap one and again on laps five and six. Kade held the top spot each time leading Prince and Dultmeier through the restarts. The spins and incidents unfortunately continued for the next several laps and led to the race being shortened in the distance. In the end, Kade collected the victory, his second in as many nights. Prince finished second with thirteenth-starting Wetzel rebounding with a solid drive all the way to third. Dylan Smith finished fourth with Johnny McGinnis and Brian Meyer completing the top six.

The race ended under a long stretch of green-flag racing with Porter showing the way to the finish.
