Derek O'Hearn dominated the Main Event in the Peanuts Auto Sportsman Modified Feature Friday night, jumping into the lead before a single lap was completed from the third starting spot and rolled to win number five in the non-stop event. O'Hearn, who already held the point lead heading into the last regular season race, cemented the championship with the victory. Ryan Avery finished second after hopping a ride in the Sanville #92 with Brian Whittemore once again claiming third. Ricky and Jason Sanville completed the top five.
The Petro Mart of Enfield Super Streets saw Toby Stark claim his first Victory of the season. At the drop of the green Donald Ottati took the lead from the pole position, holding it until the races' first caution on lap 5. On the restart Matt Pike bolted into the lead, leading until Stark moved to the front with 13 laps in the books. The duo swapped the lead couple of time until Stark reclaimed the top spot for the last time on lap 19, running to the win. Doug Boucher claimed second and with that becomes the Super Street Champion for 2016. Travis Smith was third with Hunter Nutter and Derrick Stearns rounding out the top five
The action was hot and heavy in the Enfield Garage Outlaw Mini Stocks where Jonathan Baker bolted into the lead from the outside pole position at the drop of the green. Baker held the top spot until Aaron Bunker used a restart to his advantage to claim the lead just before the halfway point of the event. From there Bunker went on to claim a division leading ninth win. Matt Boucher worked his way into second at the conclusion of the Feature with Jonathan Baker finishing third. Jack Cook was fourth with Mike Ryan fifth. Bunker may have won the battle, but Matt Boucher won the war, claiming the Outlaw Mini Stock title by a slim margin.
Mechanic Races and a Powder Puff completed the evening's program. Jamie Glidden won the Mechanic's race for the Sportsman Modifeds with Elmer Nutter victorious in the Super Streets and Earl Fleming coming out on top of the Outlaw Mini Stocks. Cassie Wright claimed the win in the Powder Puff.
