The win was Dewease's 12th overall 410 spprint win of the season. Kauffman, who was vying for his record 10th Port Royal track title in the final points race of the season, was leading feature with 22 laps complete when he and the l0th place car of Dave Hahn made contact on the frontstretch. Hahn, who had apparently broke his front axle, flipped and Kauffman stood his car straight up, but did not go over. Even with the misfortune, Kauffman was able to be credited with a 10th place finish and claimed the track championship. Hamburg's Scott Haus took the lead from Tim Gray on the eighth lap and raced away to his fifth win of the season in the 20 lap Hub-City Qualifier for late models. Steve Campbell, who finished 13th, secured his second track title in the process. Tim Krape got the lead from Scott Dorman on the second lap and led the rest of the way for his second pro stocks feature win of the season. Jim Palm's fifth place finish allowed him to claim his third pro stock track title.
