Terry Schultz and Shadren Turner earned front-row starting positions for the 20-lap B-Mod main event, but it was Turner who grabbed the early race lead over Schutlz, Brandon Lennox and Jacob Ebert through nine laps of competition. After a lap-9 restart, Turner again assumed command and put distance between himself and Schultz in second. Caution flew again on the restart one more time, but then drivers settled into a groove through lap 17 with Turner out front and in heavy lapped traffic, as the caution flew one final time. Turner was too strong on this night, and he eventually captured the victory over Schultz, Lennox, Stephen Clancy, and Colin Pierce.

Behind Ewing, Meyer, Ted Welschmeyer, Aaron Poe, and Nick Gibson held spots within the top five. Welschmeyer moved to second on lap five behind Ewing out front while Meyer slipped to third to battle with Poe for the position. Caution flew again at lap seven, with Ewing leading Welschmeyer, Meyer, Poe, and Gibson. Ewing eventually pulled away from the field, leaving a great battle for second right to the finish of the race between Welschmeyer, Poe, and Meyer.

The late models were added to the program in the eleventh-hour to round out a full field of cars of all types for the fans and they did not disappoint as their feature came down to a tight battle with previous winner Johnny Fennewald and rising local talent, Kaeden Cornell, who started on the pole for the race. Cornell pulled away from any close pursuers by lap six with Fennewald, Tucker Cox, and Darren Phillips behind him. A lap-seven yellow slowed the field with Cornell holding the top spot. Yellow flew again a lap later as the drivers worked to settle into a groove. From this point, Fennewald moved up to challenge the leader for several laps as Cornell worked to hold the top spot. At the lap 13 mark, Fennewald made his move and grabbed the lead after several close racing laps among the leaders. Fennewald eventually captured his second win of the season at CMS in the POWRi Late Models with Cornell coming home a very respectable second. Cox, Alan Westling, and Darren Phillips rounded out the top five, with Phillips rallying back to the top five after an earlier spin.

All season long drivers have been trying to figure out how to beat Logan Roark, who has been on a roll whenever he hits the local tracks. Roark and Pete Richardson, all the way up from Springfield, took the top starting honors for the 15-lap main event. Roark quickly moved to the front followed by Richardson and Dakota Girard. A caution for debris slowed the field near the front with Roark leading Davidson, Alex Schultz, and Girard for the restart. Caution flew again at lap five with Roark still securely in the lead. After this, drivers found their groove and raced hard for positions. Roark once again proved to be the top car as he collected his fifth CMS win of the season, this time over Richardson, who again finished in the runner-up position. Alex Schultz recorded his strongest finish at CMS in his budding career by taking third, one spot ahead of Dakota Girard and Johnny McGinnis. Jamie Aleshire advanced from fourteenth on the grid to claim sixth as the line.

Reiff darted out to the early race advantage, leaving John Snyder and Payton McDowell to battle for second place behind him during the race’s early stages. With Reiff comfortably out front, one of the best races of the night took place between Snyder and McDowell, until a caution flew at lap ten. The race ran green until lap thirteen, forcing a green, white, and checkered flag finish as McDowell spun from contention inside the top three. At the finish, Reiff once again recorded the victory, the 24th of his CMS career. Snyder held strong and ran a solid race in second ahead of seventh-starting Bobby Russell.
