The DIRTcar Street Stock race ran to completion before weather hit, with Mike Welch making a trip to victory lane. Welch finished second to Joe Reeves in the only heat race for the division after a nasty wreck the race’s start took pole sitter Mike Cooper out of the race. Reeves claimed the lead off the restart, but Welch steered around him early in the race and outlasted two more cautions for the win.
