Spike Moore took home the win in the 20 lap Late Model Sportsman main event. Devin Weyandt led the first 12 laps before a caution bunched up the field, allowing Moore to erase the lead Weyandt had built. On the ensuing restart Moore got by Weyandt to lead the last eight laps and the win. Following Moore across the line were Clinton Hersh, Chad Meyers, Kadden Smith and Donnie Farlling.
