EAMS Late Model (25 Laps):
1 – #1D Dalton D Cook – edged out #K9 Dana Eiland for the pole, got a bad initial start but due to a spin in turn 1 and a complete restart, took the lead on the next start and never looked back to pick up his 4th EAMS win in his last 4 attempts.

4 – #K9 Dana Eiland – started 2nd and took the lead on the initial start, but a caution due to a spin in turn 1 set up a complete restart that didn’t work out as well for him – expanded his points lead to 74.
