Curtis Heldenbrand led the second A Main and ran away from the field to take his first Pro Truck main event win. In the Figure 8’s Harry Livermore Jr. dethroned Jereme Wall for the first time this season but Jereme Wall battled his way to the front to take the second A Main event win. Nick Brinlee lead an action packed super stock race wire to wire and Bear Lynch dominated the Late Model field to win.
Pro Truck Main #1 The First of two A Main events was a very exciting one. Adam Deines lead the first third of race but Michael Scott made a pass on the high side and pulled away from the field. After a late race caution Scott held off a hard charging Curtis Heldenbrand and Adam Deines to win the main event.

Figure 8 Feature #1 The First A Main for the Figure 8’s was led most in part by Adam Gastineau as the field was inverted. The Jared Wall, Livermore Jr, Jereme Wall and McKeachie had to fight their way through a very hard charging field.
The Livermore Jr and Jared Wall navigated through the field and started pulling away form the field as the Jereme Wall and McKeachie got caught in traffic that slowed their progress to the front.
A late race caution brought the top runners together and made for a very entertaining last couple of laps. When the green flag flew Livermore, Jared Wall, and Jereme Wall battled hard for the win but ultimately Livermore Jr. took the nights first Main Event win.

Figure 8 Main #2
The second Figure 8 Main Event was even more action packed than the first. Yet again the field was totally inverted so when the green flag dropped Joe Gastineau took off with the lead as the Jereme Wall, Jared Wall, Livermore Jr and McKeachie raced their way to the front.
A caution flag brought the pack back to Adam Gastineau, who had pulled out to big lead. When the green flag flew the Jared Wall and Jereme Wall took full advantage and rocketed to take the top two spots and pulled away from the field.
The two brothers battled hard but in the end Jereme Wall took the lead and never looked back to win the second main event for Figure 8s.
