The first race out on the track would also be a main inside of the Super Stock division and the track would definitely still be a little moisture still in the track as they would have issues keeping the cars under control doing the best in the wet would be Tyler Bushey bringing home the victory. Next up as far as the mains would be the Mod Lites and you would see a return to the track familiar one in victory lane as Tucker Halliday would get the 20 lap win. Then to track would be the 358 Modified Series for a 60 lap event and getting the lead off the start is Ryan Barlett. He would be able to hold the lead to lap 30 when he made a mistake and Erick Rudolph capitalize and took the lead.
