Madrid raced from sixth to snare his fourth Viper Smart Start Pure Stock feature win in the last five outings ahead of Chris McCurdy, Jr., Joe Vlasity, Mike Herrera and Steve Duffy.

Paul O’Connor put a halt to John Romero’s Renegade domination by taking the checkered flag after starting eighth while Romero fell one position short of a fifth consecutive win with runner-up honors from 10th as Trenton Setelin, Joe Flewelling and Mike Allen rounded out the top five.

In Dwarf Cars, Ryan Hennessey became the fourth different winner in as many CSP outings by racing from ninth for victory honors ahead of Jim Hock, Brian Stehr, Steve Kapaun and Mike Strobel.
