Shannon Maughlin took the lead as the white flag flew to emerge atop a hard-fought 20-lap IMCA Stock Car feature. While Maughlin worked forward from ninth, Mike Kennedy held off Billy Phelps and Brandon Fisher over the opening half dozen circuits before Fisher took command.
Maughlin worked through a host of challengers before finally edging ahead of Fisher for the win on the final lap, with Phelps, Josh Crombie and Kennedy filling out the top five.
Dustin Walker rebounded from an early tangle in the 20-lap Thunder Car feature only to surrender the point in the final handful of circuits to Scott Messino, who snared the win after starting ninth.
Cody Davis paced the initial eight rounds of the Thunder Car feature before Toby Schield battled into the lead only to pull to the infield with race-ending mechanical woes under a lap 15 caution. Walker assumed the point after rallying from the tail only to have Messino battle into the lead for keeps with Walker, Bryan Habiger, Davis and Matt O’Hair in the top five.
Jarett Lunow picked up right where he left off in the Hornet ranks. After topping last year’s season finale, Lunow battled past Marci O’Hair halfway through the 10-lap main event on the inner asphalt oval and went on to pick up the win in front of Brandon Bogner and O’Hair.
