Jimmy Gustin and Brett Ladehoff started on the front row for the Coors Light IMCA Modified 20-lap maine event. Gustin used that to his advantage and took the early lead. Meanwhile behind the leaders, the field raced three and four wide. The 10th and 11th place starters, Brian Irvine and Ronn Lauritzen, emerged as contends for the lead. A series of early cautions tightened the field.

Lauritzen took the lead away from Gustin just after a series of early cautions. IMCA Modified Rookie contender made his way into second place.

Gustin finished third, last week's feature winner Josh Gilman finished fourth, and Eric Elliott was fifth.

In The Miller Lite IMCA Stock Cars 18 lap feature, it was Michael Bilyeu grabbing the lead on lap one.

Meyer continued to lead until Trent Murphy saw the door open on lap 15, Murphy took the lead away from Meyer. Meyer tried to get back by Murphy but Murphy held on for the win.
