Fans were given an opportunity to meet their favorite drivers during driver introductions in the Warren Luedke Auctioneering Grand Nationals.

Drivers competed in a 30-lap feature full of entertainment. Aaron Hauck (Plymouth) started inside the second row and led lap one, while original front row Steven Weber (Plymouth) and Tim Thompson (Campbellsport) were both passed on the first lap sending them both back about five positions.

Chris and Michael Gilson (Elkhart Lake) both retire early with mechanical issues. Brad Lubach (Kiel) passed Kevin Lubach (Elkhart Lake) for second place and in hunt of the leader Hauck. Yellow flag waived on lap 14 for James Pagel spinning and hooking the tires in turn 2. Kevin Lubach also pitted for a flat tire, both drivers able to return on the lead lap.

Brad Lubach was across the finish first followed by Mark Fieber (Cascade), Brian Goetsch (Sheboygan), Steven Weber and Kevin Lubach.

Twenty-two Exotic Tans & Spas 360 Sprints rolled trackside for their main event.

First row consisted of broth- ers Jim Melis (Glenbeulah) and Tim Melis (Plymouth). Jim Melis wasted no time leading the field to lap 1. Josh Walter (Plymouth) racing too hard tapped the wall and flipped in turn 2 during lap 6. Kyle Marten (Sheboygan) may have started seventh until he passed Brandon McMullen (Plymouth) for second.

As the checkers fell Jim Melis won, followed by Kurt Davis. Danny Schlafer finishes third who started in his dad’s car after having motor issues earlier. Fourth and fifth went to Donny Goeden (Kewaskum) and Brandon McMullen.

Ben Meyerhofer (Menasha) and Brandon Frank (Sheboygan) brought the field to the green for the Sheboygan County Fair Association Outlaw Compacts feature event. Travis Arenz (Sheboygan) started the feature last due to a car change, driving Mike Schultz car after having mechanical issues in his heat.

Brandon Frank led lap one, then Meyerhofer took over and didn’t look back. Tim Simon (Fond du Lac) pulled into the infield with mechanical issues. Arenz lost his tire on the front stretch sending debris towards the stands. Jeff Brendel (Sheboygan Falls) retired to the pits. Ben Meyerhofer won followed by Brandon Frank, Jonathon
