The $5,000 win was Dewease's 73rd career win and his first win of the season at the historic Juniata County oval. Keith Kauffman used his outside front row starting spot to grab the lead at the drop of the green with Dewease making his race-winning move on the fifth lap. Dewease to the win by a half straightaway over Kauffman. Todd Shaffer rode home third followed by Todd Hestor and Todd Gracey, who has announced he will follow the Gumout series this season. "My motor was cold at the start and I about got run over when it didn't take off," said the winner in victory lane. "We didn't change the car after the Dash...it worked great on the bottom. We had a slow start here this year. It's tough on these young Outlaw drivers to come in here and beat us. We'll be running next Saturday at Lincoln with the All-Stars." Mifflintown driver Gary Beward snared the lead from Jason Schmidt with two laps to go in the 12-lap pro stock feature to pick up his seventh career speedway win.
