Ty Weidner raced from fifth for his first Pure Stock victory of the year in front of Matt Martinez, Steve Bitting, Joe Vlasity and Ty Warner.

John Romero charged from ninth to snare his fifth Renegade win of the year ahead of Joe Flewelling and Jason Crowe while Chaz Baca, Jr., nabbed his third Mod Lite win of the season from the ninth starting position ahead of Brenden Priedt and J.C. Gilleland.
