Joel Brown, Fred Hastings and Womack shared the heat wins for pure stock. Joel Brown blasted right into the lead in the feature. No one could catch Brown. Womack moved to second and tried to catch Brown , but had to settle for second. Fred Hastings took third, James Harold fourth and Jason Truax fifth.
Scott Holt and Tim Dillon took the heat wins in UMP. Holt has won several heats at Pike and came in second but couldn't seem to get that win. Well tonight he did, lap after lap he held back hard charging Chad Williams. With only three laps to go Williams got a nose under Holt, but Holt drive a flawless race and took the win. Williams with 1 lap to go got low coming off four and Brent Ainsworth slipped by for second. But when they crossed the line they were almost even side by side, Williams got third. Jeff Martello took fourth and Billy Collette rounded out the top five.
Leonard Barrileou took the heat and feature win in pure stock. The only yellow in the race was when Chad Bush broke an axel in four. Barrileou led every lap and took the win. Michael Barfield moved up to finish second, but was Dqed for a triple disk clutch so that moved Justin Bowman to second and Jimmy Stephens to third and Rusty Cooper fourth.
Don Bolton took the street stock heat win. But it was Matthew Simeon that blasted into the lead from outside the front row. Simeon led every lap and took the win followed by Don Bolton, Gary Talbert, Blair Dent, and Randy Jamison.
Super stock it was the young man from Saucer, Ms. that put on the show. Rusty Cooper with wheels in the air blasted into the lead and sailed so smoothly lap after lap. Eddie Kerry ran second for a while then lost the spot to Michael Ladner. Ladner finished second and Kerry third Johnny Breeland fourth and Fletcher fifth. Cooper and Kerry shared heat wins.
Marlon Wild felt the power of his Ford Late Model. When the green flag waved Wild blasted into the lead leaving the field 10 car lengths behind. Wild was hooked up and flying. When he got into lap traffic Randy Cook got within 5 car lengths but on the straightaway Wild could get 10 car lengths away.
