Adam Davis would take the early lead.  Mike Kennedy would take the lead from Davis.  Kennedy would have to battle with Randy Bryan late in the race.  Bryan took the win with Tim Hennigar, Mike Kennedy, Andy Hennigar and Adam Davis finishing 2nd through 5th.


Toby K's Hideaway IMCA Hobby Stock feature would see some great racing action. Jennifer Hulin led the first handful of laps. Hulin would have to battle with Nelson. Brandon Brinton takes the top spot away on lap 6. Kevin Fee then took his shot at the top spot. On the final restart, Fee would have to do battle with Michael Murphy. Coming off turn 4 on the final lap, Murphy would make it stick and beat Fee to the line to take the win. Donavon Nunnikhoven, Brandon Brinton and Christopher Wiltse rounding out the top 5.
