The O'Reilly Auto Parts Twilight Racing Series saw Derek O'Hearn take his second win of the young season in the Peanut's Auto Sportsman Modifeds, Travis Smith won his first of the year in the Homestead Creations Late Model Sportsman and Jason Porter make a late race pass to win in the Mini Stocks. The Bear Ridge Sportsman Coupes also made an appearance with veteran Bob Shepard topping the field.
Derek O'Hearn bolted into the top spot before a lap was complete in the Peanut Auto Sportsman Modifieds with Jeff Huntington claiming second and T.C. Forward settling into third. The running order stayed the same until Todd Buckwold worked his way by Forward to claim third. Just two laps later the caution flew for an incident involving Richie Simmons and Ryan Christian in turn four. When the green flew again O'Hearn once again annexed the lead and started to pull away from the field. O'Hearn then survived one more caution to take the win with Todd Buckwold second and Jeff Huntington third. Ricky Sanville and T.C. Forward completed the top five.
The Homestead Creation Late Model Sportsman Main Event saw lots of action up front. At the drop of the green Matt Pike bolted into the lead with Travis Smith a strong second. Smith applied constant pressure to leader Pike until he was able to complete the pass for the lead coming out of turn two with nine laps complete. While the battle up front raged, Jesse Durkee and Toby Stark were dueling for third, with stark eventually getting the nod for the spot. At the checkers it was Travis Smith claiming the victory with Matt Pike second and Toby Stark third. Jesse Durkee and Scott Heath rounded out the top five.
The Rand's Hardware Mini Stocks saw Nitro Nick Comeau claim the top spot when the initial green flew. Comeau first held off the repeated challenges of opening night winner Erin Aiken and then later Jacob Brown applied intense pressure to leader Comeau. While the battle up front was intense Jason Porter was quickly working his way towards the front from his 18th starting spot, arriving in third at the halfway point of the race. Just two laps later Porter claimed second and set his sights on leader Comeau. After challenging for the lead for a handful of laps Porter was able to secure the lead when Comeau slipped up slightly coming out of turn two. At the checkers it was Jason Porter with the win, Nick Comeau was a strong second with Jacob Brown third. Mike McClay and Erin Aiken were fourth and fifth respectively.
The Bear Ridge Speedway Sportsman Coupes were also on hand with Bob Shepard leading from wire to wire to take the win, Chris LaForest, who started scratch on the field was second with Tad Kingsbury third. Tanner Siemons and Todd Hayward completed the top five.
