The Grand Nationals were paced by Don Marr's as him and young Austin Johnson battled from the front row. Marr's would go on to the victory while Johnson ended up with a solid 4th place showing. Gary Donaldson put a drive under neath Marr's but not enough to get the job done. Marr's took the Marrs Tree Service #9 to victory lane.
To race up front in the Factory Stock class you needed to be related to someone. Nate and Jay Barnes jumped out to the front early on while brother in law's, Justin Siefert and Brett Heeter worked through the field. In the end Siefert and Heeter were side by side out of turn four with Heeter picking up his 6th feature win in a row. Not an easy thing to do in the factory stock class!
The USRA B Modifieds were 3 and 4 wide throughout the night with Bad Brad Smith picking up yet another win in his white and blue 99. The man of the hour was Randal Schiffelbein Jr. out of Topeka, KS. In his first year in a B Mod Randal held off the likes of Gene Claxton, Mike Higley and Aaron Marrant for 14 of 15 laps of the feature - all while giving Smith all he could handle. Schiffelbein slipped up out of turn 2 on lap 4 and slipped back to finish 4th however a very positive night for the young b mod driver. Mike Higley came home second with Chad Feather coming home in 3rd.
