Charlie Ackerman dominated the Bomber car class to pick up the 30 lap feature race on Saturday. The I.M.C.A Modifieds and the Dwarf cars filled out the rest of the racing card.

Brad Purdy had a great day in the I.M.C.A Modified division, picking up three wins out of four races. Although Purdy had such a dominating night, Kevin Noble set a new track record in qualifying, with a time of 15.612. The old track record was held by Chris Beaulieu, with a time of 15.642. Purdy picked up the win in the Dash, and dominated the first of two heats, leading all eight laps. The reverse heat saw Noble take the lead from Dano Bryant on the first lap and never look back. The 15-lap feature saw Purdy and Noble battle for the lead for 10 laps. On lap 10, Noble clipped the back end of Purdy, which gave Noble a flat time and causing him to fall out of contention for the win. Purdy would go on to take the win, with second going to Bryant, and third to Noble.

A wreck last weekend caused a smaller field of Dwarf cars on Saturday. Fast time in qualifying went to Jim Pridge, setting a time of 15.798. The B dash was won by Tyler Peters, and the A went to Carl Carlson Jr., who was filling in for Bruce Garside on the night. The first of two heats saw Bob Pridge lead until lap 6, when his younger brother Jim Pridge took the lead and the eventual win. The reverse heat saw Tyler Peters start on the pole and stretch his lead from there, taking the win. The 20-lap feature saw Jim Pridge work his way from the back to the front in only five laps. Pridge would stretch his lead from there. Second went to Tyler Peters, and third to Bob Pridge.
