Jimmy Zacharias and Jeffrey Brown led the Getzoni Nationwide Insurance Agency NASCAR Pro Modifieds to the green flag for their main event with Zacharias taking the lead in the Moose Rutherford owned number 77. With Zacharias pacing the field, Amy and Dave Catalano moved into second and third respectively. On lap five, George Skora III raced passed Dave Catalano to move into third and less than five laps later, passed Amy for the runner up spot. The lone caution of the event occurred on lap 13 after a muffler fell onto the speedway.

The restart saw Skora pass Zacharias on the outside to take over the lead. Once up front, Skora would pull away from Zacharias as Dave and Amy Catalano continued to battle each other for third. Skora would race his way to the victory and added to his points lead. Jimmy Zacharias would finish in second and was followed to the line by Dave and Amy Catalano and outside pole sitter Jeff Brown.

Josh Hathaway and Dave Whittaker paced the McClurg Auto Group Late Models to the green flag and it was Whittaker taking the advantage as Hathaway bogged-down to the bottom of the speedway. On lap three, Eldon King III made his move after going three wide with Whittaker and Brandon Glover to take over the race lead. With King dominating the field, Dave Whittaker and Brandon Glover put on a great battle for second and on lap 15, Glover attempted to pass Whittaker but “good Ol DW” was up to the challenge. King would cruise to the win over Whittaker and Glover.

Veteran racers Ken Maltby and Zach Myers led the Bank of Holland Chargers to the green flag for their 30 lap feature and it was Maltby getting into the early race lead. With Maltby showing the way, the battle was on for third on back with Rich Carnes working his way through the field. Carnes would move into third place just as Dave Wilson was going after the race lead.

Wilson would go underneath Maltby to grab the lead with just six laps remaining. With Wilson’s brakes glowing in the Holland night, Rich Carnes worked his way underneath Maltby and both making contact with each other as the checkered flag flew over the field.
