Curt Genow led qualifying for the Late Models with a 15.91. Heat race winners were Pat Zorn and Jason Felver. The 75-lap feature didn't start out as planned as the field didn't make through the green flag. Zorn and Fred Cummings, Jr. both spun coming out of turn 4 to start the race. Four cars were involved, as Cummings and Felver were unable to continue. Zorn took the lead when the race finally started and held it until lap 4. Then Genow worked his way through the field and took over the top spot. But Blake Childers was right on his tail and he bided his time until lap 42 when Childers took the lead and never looked back to take the win. Genow was second followed by Austin Fredwall, Josh Hahn and Zorn.
