With extra money and pride on the line for the Karl Tinsley Memorial 20-lap special event for Pure Stocks, it was a thrilling way to honor Tinsley as the Anderson Family requested the top four Pure Stocks start at the back of the 16-car starting grid. The decision was agreed upon by all drivers as they set sail to determine the outcome. Dennie Belknap quickly established himself as the man to beat as he paced the field up front over fellow row-one starter, Rieli Yonts. Joseph Smith, Jr., Spencer Reiff, Don Marrs, and point’s leader Marshall Jewett started in the final four positions and as the race progressed made their way toward the front of the field. Reiff was the driver who kept the pressure on Belknap, especially the final few circuits of the event, coming up just shy of the victory. Belknap, substitute driving in the Bobby Russell-owned Pure Stock eventually took the checkered fag win with Reiff settling for second. Jewett rose from sixteenth to third at the finish with Jerett Evans fourth and Brandon Hoover fifth. Jewett now holds a 30-point lead over Don Marrs in the standings.
