Adams took over the lead on lap five with Blowers and Prudoehl racing for second. Shaun Mann moved into third on lap eight as Prudoehl dropped back.

Mann, Schwebach, Blowers and Prudoehl rounded out the top five.

The Hinz Enterprises USRA B-Modifieds were up next with Lee Jonsgaard and Al Wagner racing for the lead on lap one. Wagner kept working the high side and on lap three took over the top spot.

Another restart on lap sixteen, setup a shootout for the win. Bleess led with Kanz right beside him, and as they came out of four Kanz got the run winning by less than a nose cone.

On the restart Sanders led with Kevin Hager in second, Kelly Anderson in third with Jeff Brauer right behind in fourth.

Anderson took the spot while Brauer followed through into the second spot on lap nine. With ten down Brauer was all over Anderson and they two ran side by side for the win over the next ten laps. They raced hard and clean with very little contact and side by side on the lower half of the speedway. Anderson finally gained the upper hand on the last lap to take home the win.

Jake Timm led out of two in the NAPA AutoCare USRA Modified feature event with JJ Wise in second. A Caution after one lap saw a restart where a nine car pileup blocked turn three with Mick Glenn getting up on his side. All drivers were okay and the race was resumed. Timm led with Brandon Davis moving into second with Wise in third. Four down and Davis took over the lead. Lucas Schott flew through the field working into third by the end of the race following Davis, Timm across the line.

With five down Kaanta joined into the battle for third as another caution flew. On the restart Pember led with Matthees and Fegers in the top three. A.J. Diemel worked into fifth and on lap and then under Kaanta for the fourth position as another caution flew on lap twelve. Diemel, Matthees and Pember were three wide on the restart for the lead.

Redetzke took over second on lap nineteen and set sail for the lead. On lap twenty they ran side by side for the lead and on lap twenty two Redetzke was credited with the lead.
