Kevin Folan started on the pole, and led the first 30 laps of the 40 lap Pro Stock feature. Mike Mitchell, Dave Silvia and then Ken Spencer all took turns trying to hunt down the Pro Stock sophomore. At the halfway point, Folan had a 4 car length lead over Spencer, Mike Brightman, Tom Scully Jr and Ryan Vanasse.

The first caution came out on lap 30, when Bob Hussey and Daryl Stampfl got together. From there, the lead was about the place that no one wanted to be. On the restart, contact between Brightman and Folan sent the 17 around, and Brightman to the pits. Dave Darling and Tom Scully Jr were involved as well.

Spencer and Vanasse battled for the lead on the restart, and Spencer lost the back end and spun, bringing out the caution.

Vanasse set the pace through a handful of additional cautions, but under a lap 38 caution, a leaking tire sent Vanasse to the pits, handing the lead over to Dick Houlihan. The former 2 time champion held on to win with Dave Silvia second, Kevin Folan, Dave Darling and Rick Martin third, fourth and fifth.

Jeramee Lille survived a wild 30 lap Late Model main event to pick up his third win of the season. Mark Hudson set the early pace, including through the first two cautions of the feature, one involving 2013 LM Champion Gerry DeGasparre Jr. After the lap four restart, Brandon Dion, using the outside lane, moved past to take over the top spot.

Dion held the lead until Dillon Moltz moved past on a lap 12 restart, but his lead would only last a handful of laps, as he fell victim to a throttle issue on lap 21. This handed the lead over to Bill Bernard, who had made his way through the pack. Bernard seemed poised to pick up the victory until fuel issues forced him from the lead on the 27th circuit.

On the Green-white-checkered finish, Lillie was able to move past Dion, who inherited the lead when Bobby Pelland and DeGasparre tangled for the second time of the night. Lille held on for the win with Dion second. Ryan Lineham, Charlie Rose and Mark Hudson were third through fifth.

With his sixth place finish, Gerry DeGasparre made history, becoming the first driver to win 7 championships in the 68 year history of the speedway, all with his family team.

Crystal Serydynski picked up her third win of the season in the 25 lap Street Stock feature, but it wasn’t enough to overtake Scott Bruneau for the 2013 crown. Randy Moretti set the pace early over Craig Pianka, then Manny Dias before the first caution came out on lap 8 for Steve Potter. On the restart, Crystal moved past Dias for second, and followed Moretti until the second caution came out on lap 12.

Crystal out-dueled Moretti for the lead on the restart, with Gannon moving to second before the final caution came out on lap 14. Gannon put pressure on the contender, but didn’t have enough to overtake her for the win. Moretti held on for a career best 3rd, with Ray Lovelace and Scott Serydynski rounding out the top five.

Scott Bruneau was caught up in traffic for the 25 lap feature, and just missed getting caught up in the lap 14 caution. In the end, he came home 11th, hanging on by 6 points for the championship.

Mike Cavallaro and Rick Martin slid into the first corner just after the checkered flag dropped in a thrilling finish to the 25 lap Sport Truck feature. Lenny Guy set the pace for a handful of laps before Darryl Church took over at the top and led until he fell out with electronic issues on the 14th lap. This handed the lead back over the Guy, who led the field down to a lap 15 restart after Nick Uhrig spun while running second.

Rick Martin took over the lead on the 16th circuit with Mike Cavallaro moving to second just as Guy spun. Lenny was able to keep going. Martin led Cavallaro over the final several laps, with the 5 time truck champion pressuring Martin high and low. On the final lap, Cavallaro got up next to Martin and the pair raced off of turn 4, trading paint and see sawing on the steering wheels. Cavallaro edged Martin by .006 at the checkered, with the pair sliding sideways into the first corner.

John Paiva came home fifth, clinching his first championship in the Sport Trucks.
