The No. 6 of Tommy Roe and the No. 24 of Eric Bowers took the green flag for the first of two feature LM races from the front row. Bowers in the No. 24 machine got ahead of Roe’s No. 6 early as the pack strung out single file behind him. The No. 8 of Dan Alamaa began to put pressure on the No. 6 of Roe for the second position, holding each other up and allowing Bowers’ No. 24 to get away with the race lead. Alamaa’s No. 8 eventually got around Roe to take second place. With just seven laps left, the No. 88 of Brad Skufca spun out on the backstretch, but was able to gather it back up and keep going while Roe in the No. 6 advanced back into second place and went after Bowers’ No. 24. Roe threw his No. 6 to the high side, going wide and eventually making the pass on Bowers’ No. 24. With four laps to go, the No. 17X of Mariah Boudrieau spun out in Turn 2, setting the stage for a three-lap shootout to the checkered flag. When the green flag waved, Roe’s No. 6 and Bowers’ No. 24 fought side-by-side for the race lead, and Roe was able to get a good run on the high side to assume the position. Bowers tried as he might, but once Roe got around him, he couldn’t make it stick, and Roe guided the No. 6 machine to victory for the first LM feature win. This is Tommy Roe’s first win in the Late Model division since 2011 when the division was then called the Sportsman.

Feature 2 – 30 Laps

Thirty laps stood between the field and the checkered flag for the second of two LM feature races. The No. 98 of Lee Kemmit was sent to the second row after a penalty at the start of the race, which put the No. 48 of Mikey Blackard and the No. 8 of Alamaa on the front row for the start. Alamaa’s No. 8 checked out with the lead early, pulling away from the rest of the field. The No. 31 of Rick Smith came to life eight laps in, getting around Kemmit’s No. 98 for second place. Then, on lap 8 the No. 48 of Blackard pounded the wall in Turn 1, resulting in a caution. Blackard, somehow was able to drive away. He headed straight to the pits to the attention of his crew and returned to competition. On the restart, Alamaa’s No. 8 leaped out front again, chased by the No. 31 of Smith, but the No. 15 of Michael Hannah suddenly entered the battle at the front of the field. He got around Smith’s No. 31 for second place and set his signs on Alamaa’s No. 8 machine for the race lead. A caution flag bunched the field up again, allowing Hannah’s No. 15 to start next to Alamaa’s No. 8. Hannah guided his No. 15 ahead of Alamaa’s No. 8 after the restart, and he didn’t look back. Hannah’s No. 15 was crowned the winner of the second LM feature race.

Feature – 30 Laps
The No. 51 of Kyle Clegg led the field of GAMs to green for their feature event, with the No. 89 of Jacob Smith on his tail. Clegg’s No. 51 found a comfortable lead over Smith’s No. 89 as the field strung out single-file and settled in behind him. Then, just nine laps in, the No. 6 of Scotty Scott found his way around the No. 89 of Smith, taking over second place. Scott then locked onto Clegg and began to chip away at his lead slowly. A caution waved with eight laps left in the otherwise clean race, bunching up the field once again. Nothing would stand in Clegg’s way as he guided the No. 51 back to the front, putting a healthy distance between himself and the No. 6 of Scott on his way to the checkered flag. In iconic Kyle Clegg fashion, he climbed the catch fence to celebrate his win.

The No. 8 of Isaac Almaswari and the No. 34 of Ronald Johnson started on the front row for the first PS feature race. Johnson’s No. 34 checked out with the lead, but eight laps in, he found himself behind the No. OH7 of Dave Wheeler. Halfway through the race, the No. 38 of Colton Green spun in front of the leaders, but they were able to avoid him as a caution was thrown on the speedway. The restart put Johnson’s No. 34 and Wheeler’s No. OH7 up front, and Wheeler didn’t waste any time pushing the No. OH7 into the race lead. Meanwhile, Johnson’s No. 34 came under fire of Mahkrysta Hilton’s No. OH6 for second place but held onto it. The No. OH6 slipped back and fought the No. 8 of Almaswari for third place, while Johnson’s No. 34 tried to cut the distance on Wheeler’s No. OH7. He couldn’t make it stick, though, and Wheeler’s No. OH7 captured the first PS feature victory.

Feature 2 – 30 Laps

The No. 15 of Brendan Knowles and the No. 8 of Almaswari started on the front row and fought side-by-side for the lead on the first lap. Their battle was cut short, though, as a four-car incident unfolded in Turn 2, causing a caution with just one lap finished. On the restart, Almaswari’s No. 8 once again fought hard against Knowles’ No. 15, but Knowles got away with the lead. Then, the No. OH6 of Hilton entered the battle as she looked low to try to advance her position. She got around Almaswari for the second position but spun out in Turn 4 before she could eat into Knowles’ lead. Hilton gathered the No. OH6 back up, though, and set out again after losing several positions.
The familiar No. OH7 of Wheeler entered the battle for the race lead, putting pressure on the No. 15 of Knowles and getting around him despite lapped traffic. A caution waved with 13 laps left on the board, putting the No. OH7 of Wheeler and the No. 15 of Knowles together on the front row for the restart. Meanwhile, Hilton’s No. OH6 went around again, causing a lengthy caution. On the restart, Wheeler’s No. OH7 got out front, but found himself chased by the No. 8 of Almaswari. The No. 38 of Green held up the No. OH7 of Wheeler, allowing Almaswari’s No. 8 to take command of the race, but was able to make the pass again. Then, the No. OH7 suffered a spinout in Turn 3, handing the lead once again to Almaswari’s No. 8. Almaswari kept his No. 8 race car clean until the end and took home the trophy for the second Pure Stock feature race. This is Isaac Almaswari’s first ever Pure Stock win.

Elite Diesel Service Figure 8s
Feature – 20 Laps
Sam Fraus’s No. 74 and Michael Kephart’s No. 64 led the field to green through The X, and the two race cars slammed each other and spun, allowing the No. 51 of Chad Sutherland to take control of the race. The field raced two- and three-wide throughout the track, and Sutherland found himself in the middle of three as the No. 18 of Dennis Stepanich III and the No. 15 of Jereme Wall tried to make the pass for the race lead. A caution for a cone on the racing surfaced slowed the race, but Sutherland’s No. 51 assumed command once more on the restart. However, his stint at the front was short-lived, as he was contacted by the No. 52 Jared Wall and buried the nose of his race car into the wall at the entrance of Pit Road, causing another caution. The No. D67 of Keith Swenson was sent to the rear of the field after his involvement in the incident.
Jereme Wall’s No. 15 took the lead on the restart, followed by the No. 92C of Chris Cox. Jereme stretched out the lead, dodging slower cars through The X, while Travis Sanders’ No. 08 assumed the second position and narrowly avoided contact through the crossroads. Then, with four laps left, the No. 17 of Harry Livermore Jr. struck the No. 64 of Michael Kephart, strewing debris through Turn 4 and causing a lengthy caution. The restart saw the No. 3 of Joe Prante and the No. 38 of Cassidy Creekmore tangle in Turn 1 heading through The X, causing yet another yellow flag. As the race neared its time limit, it was brought down to a green-white-checkered finish. The field stacked up on the restart, but the drivers were able to keep it together and kept rolling. The No. 15 of Jereme Wall showed the way through The X and took home the victory after an eventful F8 feature race.
