Darren Shaw won the USRA Modified feature.

McCarthy Auto Group Kids Night at the I-35 Speedway was a huge success, both for providing a backpack of school supplies for all the children in attendance—200 were pre-made and the staff had to stuff more—and the Rick Beebe Heating & Air Smokin' Hot Summer Series presented by Prime Racing Products brought great racing on the super-smooth super-slick racing surface.

Darren Shaw and Gunner Martin led the way in USRA Modified heat race action. Shaw then took his outside front row position and raced to the high side of the track to take a first-lap lead. He was challenged throughout the race, first by Nathan Vaughn and then by Robbie Reed and Dennis Elliott.

At the 12-lap mark Houston Johnson had marched from his row-four starting spot to slip by Reed, and then on a restart Johnson slipped by Elliot for second.

The final finishing positions were Shaw with the win, Johnson second, Elliott third, Reed fourth and another hard charger, Mark Schafman, from his seventh-row starting position finished fifth.

The 25-car field of Out-Pace USRA B-Mods put on a great race. The four heat races won by Brad Smith, Ethan Isaacs, Patrick Royalty and Tyson Lanfermann were a prelude to the great feature.

Smith took his pole position and beat outside front row competitor Shawn Grady to the preferred lane. Isaacs quickly captured the second position and it was a nose-to-tail battle. The third position was a side-by-side battle for the third.

With two laps to go, Andy Bryant slid past Royalty for third. Lonnie Hibner made a run from his fourth row starting position to claim fifth.

The Holley USRA Stock Car heat races were a crowd pleaser. Both heats were side-by-side racing with minimum distance between any of the cars. Cletus Murray and Aaron Sauter were the heat racer winners and thus the front row for the feature event.

At the drop of the green, Sauter, Brett Heeter and Murray were battling for the first-lap lead before Heeter charged to the front. Sauter took a turn-four slide over the cushion on lap three and brought out a yellow.

The new charge on the restart was a clash between Heeter, Jeff Dixon and Kevin Anderson. Anderson had his car jump out of gear causing him to spin. When the race was completed, Heeter had led every lap, Dixon was second, Murray third and Sauter made it back to fourth with Tom Fogarty bringing his No. T2 machine home fifth.
