HOBBY Bentley Goff took the win after Chip Brindle Tangled with a lapped car while leading late in the race. Brindle held on for second place over a hard charging Greg Ledford who had to go to the rear again this week.
SUPER LATE MODEL David Payne of Murphy, NC took home the checkers at Mike Lee's home of hard-core action. With 21 competitors on hand it was Kevin Gibson taking the pole with a lap of 13:66. Payne would jump from his third starting spot to take the early lead as pole sitter Kevin Gibson, Jeff Smith (GA), John Jones and Jay Brinkley would wage war for the second spot. Mechanical problems would send Smith pitside, leaving Jones and Brinkley to go to work on each other for several circuits with the runner up spot changing hand several times. All of this was happening as further back Gary McPherson, Rex Richey and Jeff Smith (NC) found the hub, and started their charge to the front. The Gremlins would send Jones to the pits bringing out a caution on lap 26. At this point it was Payne, Brinkley, Gibson, McPherson and Richey. At the end of the 35 lap feature Payne would cruise to victory with McPherson, Richey, Brinkley and Gibson rounding out the top 5.
LIMITED LATE MODEL was a Daven Dilbeck show with the race being with Johnny Cloer Jr., Tony Brindle as they swapped positions back and forth with Cloer winning out over Brindle. Brian Burke and Danny Pippin rounding out the top 5.
