The Conley's Trucking IMCA Sport Mods feature was caution filled and before one lap was completed the caution came out when three cars got together in turn two. On the restart, Jeremy Embrey jumped to the lead with Bob Sutherland in tow. The caution came out again on lap four and this forced a restart and this time it was Jared Van Deest grabbing the lead away. Van Deest began to pull away and look to be heading on to the easy win but the caution came with two laps to go.

Embrey grabbed the lead way from Mundt on the restart but then the caution came out for the final time on lap six when Bryce Sommerfeld came to a stop in turn two. Embrey continued to lead meanwhile Myles Michehl worked his way up to second from his seventh place starting spot. Michehl and Embrey began to battle for the lead and Michehl grabbed the lead away on lap 11. Michehl went on to take the win on the first night out in the new car. Craig Graham worked his way by Embrey late in the race to finish second with Embrey in third. Mundt and Roe finish fourth and fifth respectively.

Final feature of the night was the George White Chevrolet IMCA Modifieds 20 lap feature.
