Bonner Springs, Kansas, driver Ethan Isaacs and Higginsville, Missouri’s Jeremy Lile led the field to green for the 20-lap B-Mod main event with Lile grabbing the early edge. In a tight race at the front, the two drivers ran high and low in one of the most close and intense battles of the year after an early caution. However, it was Terry Schultz who moved to the front by lap three leading Lile, Isaacs, and Sturgis Streeter. As Schultz edged away, Isaacs and Lile kept their battle going in a high-side, low-side clinic with Isaacs eventually taking second by lap eight. The leaders encountered lapped cars by lap 11 with Schultz leading; however, on the next circuit Schultz’s night ended in heartbreak as he retired from the vent. Caution slowed the field for a second time at lap 13 with Isaacs leading Brad Smith, who moved from eleventh on the field to second. Over the remaining circuits, Smith was unable to reel in Isaacs, who went on to claim the victory. It was the 2009 B-Mod champion’s sixth career CMS victory. Smith settled for second with Lile third. Twelfth-starting Cole Campbell finished a solid fourth with Streeter rounding out the top five with Parker Smith sixth.

Blaine Ewing of Green Ridge, Missouri, and Branden bise of Holts Summit, Missouri led the field to the original green flag for the POWRi Super Stock main with Ewing showing the way early on. The top four ran super close over the opening quarter of the race as Ewing led Bise, Marc Carter, and Jay Prevete. After a quick lap five restart, Carter moved into the second position in a close battle for the lead with Ewing in a two-car breakaway. The fierce battle between the leaders lasted several laps until Carter emerged as the leader at lap nine. At the halfway marker, Carter led Ewing, Bise, Prevete, and Nick Gibson. Ewing nearly had a disastrous moment in turn four while running second but saved the car from spinning and continued while only losing one position. Shortly after, a multi-car accident forced the retirement of Ted Welschmeyer and Larry Ferris with Gibson going to the back of the field. When racing resumed, Carter again had his hands full with Bise who challenged several times for the lead with Carter and Bise swapping the lead I the last third of the race. Carter edged to the front at lap nineteen and took the lead for good, ultimately scoring his first victory of the season and fiftieth career victory. Bise unfortunately spun from contention on the final lap and turn and dropped to eighth in final rundown. Ewing recovered to second, ahead of Nick Gibson, Tyler Perryman, Jay Prevete, and Mike Daughtery at the finish.

Jonathan Evans and Jason Ryun began the 20-lap main event for Pure Stocks from row one with Ryun taking command early on. Evans held strong in second but had his hands full in a close battle with Spencer Reiff in the first part of the race. Evans then searched the lines for a way to the front, but Spencer Reiff also showed some muscle as he made it a three-car battle for the lead. Cameron Kelly then moved into the race for the lead as the four drivers ran hard at the front of the field in a four-car breakaway from the rest of the pack. By lap eight, Reiff moved in on Ryun up front just as yellow-flag conditions flew over the field. Ryun stayed in the lead as Reiff, and Evans resumed their close battle for second as Kelly looked on. At the lap 15 marker, Reiff again looked to the high side for a way to the front. At lap 17, Reiff had a strong run off turn two and took the lead from Ryun down the back stretch. The lead duo stayed close through lap 19 as Ryun catfished the low side trying to find a way back to the lead. However, on this night it was all Reiff as he collected his fourteenth career CMS victory over Ryun in second. Jonathan Evans was third, ahead of Kelly, Jerett Evans, and Darrin Christy to round out the top six.

Yellow flew again soon after, with the race slowed once again as Roark led Cheevers, Burns, , Steven Muilenburg, and Devin Wetzel.
