A 20 car field took the green flag in the Sport-Four division but a lap 8 incident that started when one of the lead cars blew an engine going into turn three took the field down to 14 for the restart. Following the restart, Fred Ashmore Jr. of Hancock and Donny Silva of Hudson race side by side for the lead until newcomer Jason Bosworth of Cornville got by Ashmore on lap 15 by tucking in behind Silva and following him to the checkered flag. Silva took the win, with Bosworth second and Ashmore finishing third. Steve Heath of Milo finished a close fourth behind the leaders and Glenburn’s Emma Libby placed fifth.
D.J. Moody of Prospect grabbed the lead on lap 13 of the 25 lap Maine State Lottery Sportsman feature as he passed Steve Moulton of Holden and Kris Matchett of Skowhegan as they raced for the lead on the outside groove.

Although Glazier was sent to the rear of the field for his part in the caution, he recovered to finish third. Ellsworth’s Brad Norris was fourth and Mike Overlock of Franklin finished fifth.
Jim Carr Jr. of Clifton took the win in the Strictly Streets following a nice race with Harrington’s Andrew McLaughlin following a lap 17 restart caused when early leader Shelby Kimball of Cornville’s car slowed and came to a stop on the front stretch infield following a mechanical issue that caused her to fall from the lead she had held from the start. Alex Berry of Harrington finished third with Shawn Hamel II of Bangor beating Matt Kimball of Cornville for fourth position on the final lap Matt Kimball finished fifth
