Scott Kurtzner, Corey Howard, Bob Johnston, Michael Flick, Larry Burkins, Dave Barber, Dale Murray, Garret Stewart, and Rich Pratt found themselves in the pile up in turn 1 lap 1. The restart wasn't much kinder to the UMP Open-Wheel Modified drivers as Jason Davis spun and Scott Mooers, Henry Hall, Michael Flick, Ivedent Lloyd, Jr., Wayne Hammond, and Rich Pratt all got a piece of the wreck. After a lap was scored Paul Sizemore went around and the new rule about solo spins ended his night. A lap later it was Ron Burgess' turn. The restart consisted of Buzzie Reutimann, Jeff Mathews, and Kyle Bronson in the top 3. The next spin was Larry Burkins lap 3 spin. Burkins had been running 4th but the spin ended his night. With the spins it allowed Ronnie Chance, Wayne Hammond, and Scott Mooers to drive through the field. On lap 4 it was Chance, however, that spun, ending his chances. Hammond, Joe Belkey, and Flick did an impressive job with their synchronized spin in turn 4 in evasive action. On the restart Jim Passino became the next victim and team-mate Johnston and Wayne Hammond took the evasive. The final caution was for 2nd place Kyle Bronson's spin. The green and white came out together and Buzzie Reutimann went "First Class" with the Dream Machine. Mathews took points with 2nd and Lloyd salvaged some with 3rd. Wayne Hammond put his 40 in 4th and Rich Pratt quietly rounded out the top 5. Bob Johnston was 6th, Garret Stewart drove back up to 7th even after all of his troubles. Joe Belkey kept quiet all night and walked away 8th, Michael Flick was 9th, and Dave Barber took a top 10 in honor of his father.

This time around for the Gladiators they went the wrong way around. Lap 1 was unkind to all 4 divisions and Stephen Frankland was the victim as his 7UK stopped in turn 2. Reid Christensen pulled off at this time and watched the championship fade a little farther away. All is not lost but it will be a tough task now. The next 12 were run caution free and Harold Lewis kept the 48 out front for all of them. Ray Hunter had been threatening but lost it all when the left front escaped his car. The car came to rest in turn 1 and the tire made it all the way out to the backstretch. Harold Lewis went flag-to-flag with Shane Guessford in 2nd. Steve Cox watched his son take a win and he took 3rd home himself. An impressive run for Tiffany Shaw resulted in her finishing 4th. Chase Gustafson rounded out the top 5. Lake Smith was 6th, Spud Lockwood 7th, Ray Hunter 2 laps down in 8th, Steve Johnson 9th, and Stephen Frankland put the Orlando Kia 7UK in 10th.

Next week-end is the return of the RaceCar Engineering Late Models. Alongside are the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks in the long awaited $500 to win Double Points race and the Gladiators.
