After a successful opener last weekend, points racing kicked off Friday night with tight competition was the norm in all divisions.

     Sophmore pilot Isabel Barron, took the early lead in the SnellMetalfab Crate Sportsman event, setting a solid pace and fighting off all challenges for the majority of the 30 lap feature. Bobby Butcher was her early competition, but Dalton Maynard was on the charge from his seventh place starting spot and took over second on lap six... after numerous attempts to overpower the leader, Maynard made an inside move on the twelfth lap on turn two, and led into turn three, but the lap went caution before the leaders got to the scoring line, putting Barron back to the front for the restart. On lap 23, Maynard was again able to claim the inside line and take the lead. Rich Powell had slipped to the back of the pack due to an early race incident and had driven back to third, and pinned Barron to the outside, folowing Maynard by. Powell mounted a challenge to the new leader in the closing laps, but had to settle for second at the finish.  Barron fought off Kinser Hill to hang on for third, with Quinten Buchanan a solid fifth at the final.

Doug Stack Jr., who had pitted with a flat tire on a fifth lap caution, worked his way steadily back to the third spot by lap ten, and the lead trio tried to put some distance on the remainder of the field. On lap twenty, Marlatt pitted with mechanical issues, and Stack Jr. closed in on Zimmer, challenging for the lead over the next ten laps. On the white flag lap, Zimmer slid up out of the groove in turn one, opening the door for Stack and he took the lead down the back straight, and held on for the win.

      The new Crate Late Model class only fielded four cars for this week's event, and they also ran their feature flag to flag, but the number of cars wasn't an indication of a lack of committment and competitive spirit on the part of the drivers who did make the tow to The Hill. Tim Schram took the early lead and opened up a commanding gap as Steve LaBarron and Darin Horton debated the second spot. Horton took second away from LaBarron for a few laps as the race neared the halfway point as Schram opened up a lead, but LaBarron found something on the high side, got back by Horton, and set out to reel in the leader. With two to go, LaBarron had caight Schram and spent the next two laps attempting to find a way around. Exitting turn four coming the the checkered flag, LaBarron made a strong move to the inside, but came up just a couple feet short at the line.
FEATURE FINISH: Tim Schram, Steve LaBarron, Darin Horton,  Joe Lane

Lane finished third, with Randy Mathews Fourth and Eric Ellsworth fifth.
