First out were the B Modifieds with Brandon Knepprath (Kewaskum) and Glen Blanke (Sheboygan Falls) setting the pace. Blanke pulled out to an early lead over Justin Bauer (Sheboygan Falls).

Brandon Berth (Cascade) quickly moved into fifth place after starting in the back. Blanke caught up to lapped traffic with Cody Eickberg (Plymouth) looking inside lap after lap.

A caution waved on lap six for Jared Rautmann after contact with the wall. Berth and JJ Walvoord (Howards Grove) exited the track to the attention of their crews.

Eickberg went outside Blanke on the restart and Bauer looked inside both. Blanke lost the lead to Eickberg on lap nine. Gary Glander (Sheboygan Falls) looked inside Bauer for third and succeeded.

A caution waved for Bauer and Berth left to the attention of his crew again. Eickberg had a very strong restart with Glander in second and Blanke back to third. The checkers waved for Eickberg, followed by in order by Glander, Blanke, Knepprath and Bauer.

The other feature winners were Tory Strauss in the Micro Sprints, Matt Jackson of Sheboygan in the Grand Nationals and Chris Carlson of Union Grove for the Late Models.

In the Sprint division, the feature race wasn’t completed due to the time limit. With less than 10 laps completed all of the drivers received equal pay and points.
