Grand Nationals took to the half mile of dirt and would put on a show to get the action started for a great night of feature racing. Starting from the pole position heat race winner Austin Johnson #98 would battle fellow heat race winner Chris Littrell #22 in a drag race towards turn one with Johnson prevailing. Johnson would lead every lap on his way to claiming the feature’s top spot. Gary Donaldson #28d would race his way through the pack but could not overtake the very fast leader and settle for second. Houston Johnson #97 would use a mid-race caution to his advantage racing his way to finish third. Outside pole sitter Littrell would fade in the later stages of the feature to finish fourth, with current point leader Tim Shields #42t rounding out the night’s top five.
USRA B-Mod’s would witness the return of Mike Higley #11, after a two month layoff, race his way past all challengers to McCarthy Auto-Group Victory Lane. Higley and Yancy Shepard #20y would exchange the lead multiple times with Higley prevailing in the end. Current point leader Chad Clancy #21c would battle Ed Noll #15 side by side to the checkers to finish second, leaving a very fast Noll in third place. Shadren Turner #17t was the big mover of the race coming through the pack to place a very consistent fourth, with Jake Richards #7j fifth. Heat race winners included Mike Higley #11, Chad Clancy #21c, Ed Noll #15, and Jacob Hobscheidt #01. B-Feature winner was Luke Nieman #181.
As usual the USRA Stock Cars would put on an edge of the seat nail biting feature to the checkered flag. Dean Wray #77 would pick up feature number one at Lakeside Speedway on the 2014 racing season. Wray would battle side by side with Kevin Anderson #417 gaining inches per lap to edge Anderson at the line leaving the #417 of Anderson in second. Gene Stigall #20 continues to find Lakeside Speedway to his liking backing up his two feature wins with a solid third place finish. Big mover of the race was Marshall Jewett #7 using the high line to move through the pack on his way to a fourth place finish. Early race leader Eddie Ingram #54 would fade late to place fifth. Heat race winners were Joe Smith Jr #56, Eddie Ingram #54, and Kevin Anderson #417.
USRA Modifieds were in fine form as two of the greats would battle side by side early using both high line and low line on a near perfect racing surface. The familiar face of Tim Karrick would put his McCarthy Auto-Group #1k into McCarthy Auto-Group’s Victory Lane. Karrick would use the high line to perfection as he would pass Mark Schafman #34 and never look back on his way to victory. Dustin Boney #30d would find the high line late to power his way to a second place finish. Kerry Davis #68 would search the track high and low looking for speed and get by the fast Schafman to finish third, leaving the one-time leader Schafman fourth. Mark Hoover #8 was among the top runners the entire race and would end the night in fifth place. Heat race winners were Tim Karrick and Mark Schafman.
