#20 Allen Check took fast time with a 12.026. His sponsored partner from Kurkowski Stone, #71 Mark Eswein took third in time.
Every division had very smooth racing, with hardly any yellows. Tim Hintz started on the pole of the feature and
ran off with the early lead. Burton Brown
followed right behind him. Keith Bohmsach, Monte Gress, and Mark Van followed suit. Check charged to the front for the eighth starting
Hintz led pretty much the majority of the race, but with 10 to go,
Krzykowski got around him. Then Hintz started
losing positions and falling back, allowing Bohmsach and Brown to gain positions. Check was making his move trying to catch the
leaders, but there was just not enough laps left in the race. Joe Krzykowski took the win, with Bohmsach in
second and Brown in third. Check finished
fourth. He might have had a chance to win, but
got boxed in.
Super Stock driver Wally Kalman screamed out fast time with at
13.272, just a few hundredths off of the track record.
Sam Anderson started experiencing car problems, and borrowed Don
Hesss car to race. Chris Brooks took the lead with Roger Stanczyk and Tim Zuelke
right behind him. Stanczyk fell back with
Galen Manternach and Scott Hamel moving in. Kalman
was already right up the front by the tehnth lap. The
top positions stayed neck and neck, with the middle of the pack changing positions. By lap 16 Wes Coon and Brian Weinfurter tangled
bringing out the yellow. Plowman and Brian
Schmutzer race ahead trying to get to the front.
With just five laps to a caution came out and as the next green flag
fell Brooks slammed on the gas and his car just lost all power. Zuehlke lifted Brooks up and moved him out of the
way as the rest of the pack started passing him. Zuehlke
took the win, with Manternach in second, Hamel in third.
Kalman moved up to the 6th position.
Brad Guralski took fast time in the pure stock division with a
15.003. New driver Mark Keahlier took the lead
right away, but was quickly passed by driver Frank Calabrese.
Frank kept his lead as cars started going three wide trying to get to
the front. Chuck Stebbins moved into the
second position looking to over take Calabrese. With
the last four laps, cars started getting lapped left in right with every one behind
Calabrese fighting for positions. Calabrese
took the win with Mike Gwidt in second, and Troy Engman in third.
