    In the final points race of the season at the Malden Speedway, Todd Hall claimed both the Late Model Feature and the season championship. Joining Hall in victory lane Friday night were Robert Powers in Modified, Johnny Houart took the Hobby Stock feature, Aaron Darby won in Street Stock, Tim Prine won in E-Mods and the team of Brown & Dunning won in Cruisers.

    Todd Hall led all 20 laps of the Late Model feature to pick up his third win of the year. At the checkered flag, Hall maintained a four second lead over second place finisher Scott Bell. Brian Ritchie, Bell, James Burrell and Chad Burks had quite a battle going for the second through fifth spots.
    Ritchie and Bell swapped the second position back and forth early with Ritchie settling into the position. Ritchie's car broke on lap 15 eliminating him from competition. Bell then sparred with Burks and held off a late challenge from Burrell to take second. Burrell, Burks and Kevin Roslen rounded out the top five. Hall and Ritchie won the heat races.

    Robert Powers won an early battle with Russell Bowman and led the final 19 laps to take his second Modified feature in a row. After taking the lead on the second lap, Powers pulled away and was not seriously challenged the rest of the way. The second place battle went down to the wire between Patrick Linn and Greg King. The pair raced the final four laps side by side before Linn just inched ahead of King at the wire to take the spot. Brad Buck and Scott Burge made up the rest of the top five. Heat winners were Bowman and Powers.



    Mike Francis of Fredricktown won the season's point championship.

    Johnny Houart, racing the 34 car in Hobby Stock for the second week, picked up the Feature win Friday night. The race opened with Greg Sparks in the lead. On the second lap, Sparks got tangled with Chuck Tilley in turn four, bringing out a caution flag and both were relegated to the rear of the field. Houart moved from third to first following the caution and never gave up the lead. Sparks made a mad dash through the field and moved into second on lap 11. He closed to Houart's bumper by lap 13 but could not mount a passing challenge. Tilley also moved through the pack and overtook Tim Winchester on the final lap to take third. Jason Pennington took fifth.
    Tilley and Sparks won the heat races.



    Spark's second place finish moved him into the top spot for the season as he jumped over idle Doug Moore for the championship. Moore suffered a blown engine and scored zero points the final two weeks of racing.

    Aaron Darby picked up his second Street Stock feature win of the year Friday night. Darby took the lead coming out of turn four on the first lap as he outrun Jeff Beeson down the front straight. Beeson soon had his hands full with Scott Wicker, battling for the second position. The pair swapped positions back and forth before Wicker's car ran into mechanical problems, ending his night of racing. Following a lap nine caution, Darby pulled away while Beeson and Coot Wilson battled for the second spot. Beeson settled into the spot and closed the gap with Beeson by the final lap. Beeson made a diving challenge out of turn four on the final lap but got loose and nearly gave up second as he just held off Chris Kelley for the spot. Wilson settled for fourth and Steve Forsythe took home fifth. Beeson and Darby won the heat races.
