Pure Stock would take to the track first and set the standard of excellence for the night as we would see a first-time winner in Pettijohns Winners Circle at Bethany Speedway. Chester Kaufman #94C would pick up a heat race win putting the Jamesport Mafia Driver in position to start up front for the feature. Chester Kaufman would battle George Bruning #B5 for the lead and take the front setting the pace early with the field of competitors in tow. Kaufman would remain cool under pressure as second place finisher Mich Ross #20X would challenge in the closing laps and never faulter picking up his first ever feature win. Other heat winner Conner Masoner #47X would try Kaufman as well only to fall short and place third on the night. Beau Wells #555 would put the old triple nickel in contention but be forced to settle for fourth with C J Turner #91 rounding out the night’s top five. Congratulations to Chester Kaufman on the victory as the first win is always the sweetest!

In the finale of the night, E-Modified would not disappoint with $500 on the line for the winner. Heat race winner Billy Spilman #63 would not waste any time moving out front and into the lead and setting a blistering pace with Steven Makar #4M in tow. Makar would try Spilman in the later stages of the race but to no avail as Spilman would pick up the big win and the big paycheck with Makar a strong second. Third place would find the hard charger of the race Ben Stockton #33s with other heat race winner Randy Smith Jr #.308 fourth.
