Dan Bohr, Kevin Pittman and Chuck Stanton were the Modified heat winners. Pure Stock heat wins went to Shawn Erickson and Jeremy Oaks.

Tony Trower left little doubt who had the best car for the night in the Stock Car feature. Trower took command of the race at the drop of the green flag, pulling away for his first victory at the speedway, winning by a full straightway. The racing was for the second position with a lot of side by side racing action. Ron Konkel picked up second with Brian Tank taking third followed by Gerald Peter and Marinus Mlady.

Lynn Panos took control of the Hobby Stock feature after five laps had been completed and took home the checkers for his flrst win of the season. Jeff Vsetcka finished second, Tory Reicks was third, Jr. Boyer was fourth after having to make his way into the feature through the B Main. Dave Mayer was fifth.

Dan Bohr and Kevin Pittman put on quite a show in the Modified feature with the two drivers rnnning bumper to bumper almost from the start. The two pulled away from the rest of the field and then had to snake their way through lapped traffic with Bohr pulling out the win. This is the third week in a row that Pittman has finished second. Troy Hale, Tim Donlinger and Brian Bronner rounded out the top five

The Pure Stock class is new to the Speedway this year and is one that keeps growing every week. Jeremy Oaks found the track to his liking in his first trip to Cresco this year and picked up the sweep, taking home both heat and A Main wins. Justin Humpal finished second followed by Shawn Erickson, Bob Praska and Mark Mensink.
