Gillett Vet Clinic Super Late Models #6 Dominic Ursetta and #55 Jesse Runkle paced the Gillett Vet Super Late Models for a 40 lap feature event but when the green flag dropped Ursetta’s car stuttered and he quickly fell back to 4th position. Ursetta’s bobble allowed #22 Chris Eggleston to leapfrog Runkle to the front of the pack and begin to build a lead.
#31 Rick Smith and #12 Bruce Yackey were racing for 5th and 6th spots when the two made contact in turn two 2 sending both cars spinning and bringing out the yellow flag. Smith’s car suffered the lions share of the damage while Yackey’s car was able to stay on the track but ended his chances for the win.
Ursetta appeared to be the fastest car on the track as he worked back around #11 Darren Robertson and #55 Runkle to take 2nd place and begin to track down Eggleston who had accumulated a rather large lead. As the laps ticked down Ursetta caught Eggleston and began to work him for position.
With just 10 laps to go in the race Ursetta got on the low side of Eggleston and pulled even with the 22 car. For the remainder of the race the two cars battled side by side with Ursetta low, and Eggleston high. Ursetta seemed to have the faster car in turns 1 and 2 but Eggleston was quicker in 3 and 4. As the race came to a close the packed house at CNS moved to the edge of their seat in anticipation as nobody could predict which of these drivers would lead the final lap.
When the checkered flag flew it was Eggleston crossing the line just feet in front of Ursetta. In winner’s circle Egglston praised Ursetta for racing him clean and putting on one of the best races in recent memory at CNS. Behind the leaders Runkle and Robertson put on a great show of their own with Runkle taking 3rd and Darren settling for 4th.

SUNOCO Grand American Modifieds A scary moment marked the start of the Grand American Modified feature when #52 Jared “Wally” Wall from Commerce City Colorado smacked the turn one wall hard when a scramble at the front of the field left him no place to go. Thankfully Wally was uninjured in the crash but his night was through. After the cleanup the race resumed and #8 Dan Alamaa from Colorado Springs began to build a small lead on the field with only #95 Dave Finley in his rear view mirror. #0 Ron O’Neil did a marvelous job holding off perennial race favorite #77 Jeff Hansen, with #21 Jeff Hunter and 22u Dominic Ursetta close behind. Alamaa never looked back and went on to win his first ever feature event at CNS. Finley finished 2nd, O’Neil come in 3rd with Hansen and Hunter settling for 4th and 5th.

NTC Logistic Super Stocks A large field of Super Stocks rumbled to the green flag with #02 Darrell Stewart and #99 Michael Navaro on the front row. Stewart slowed on the first lap and cars scrambled to get by him without incident. At the back of the pack the two number 12 cars got together and crashed on the front straight, both #12 Joel Perry and 12x Brent Miller were uninjured in the crash. When the race resumed it was #33 Bear Lynch powering to the front in determined fashion but he wasn’t alone as #0 Andrew Muse was hot on his tail. The best battle on the track was for 3rd place as #88 David Rothrock, #46 Rick Lothert, and #3 Michael Cox were putting on a show passing lapped cars and battling for position but none of them had anything for Lynch who took the checkered and Muse who followed closely in 2nd place.

ERA Supermodifieds Just 7 Supermodifieds hit the track for their feature event but as usual the extreme speed and the roar of their raw horsepower was a fun sight for the fans. An early caution flag was displayed when the leader #15 Josh Lewis slowed in a cloud of smoke and #51 Joe Priselac spun into the turn 4 infield. On the restart teammates #2 Richy Castor Jr. and #3 Harold Evans powered past the field and took a commanding lead. Evans couldn’t catch Castor who began to build his lead while passing slower cars. Castor took the win followed by Evans, #14 Joe Gallegos, #1 Jason Castor, and #51 Joe Priselac.
