Kevin Blackburn and Gunner Martin began the final race of the night from row one for the 25-lap A-Mod feature. Martin quickly shot out to an early race lead over Blackburn and Tim Karrick. By lap seven, Kameron Grindstaff, Karrick, and Dennis Elliott had a fantastic and close battle for the third position as the drivers swapped lanes and positions on the track to the excitement of fans. At lap ten, Martin maintained his lead ahead of Blackburn and Grindstaff. By lap 13, Martin began to lap some cars while Elliott, having one of his best-ever CMS runs, moved into third. Darron Fuqua moved into fourth by lap 16 but Grindstaff battled back and retook fourth the next lap. In a race that went green to checkered in 7 minutes and 15 seconds, Martin was the man to beat as he collected his 13th career CMS win.

Jay Prevete and Cody Frazon earned front-row starting positions for the 15-lap POWRi Super Stock feature with Frazon leading the opening circuits. Prevete never let the leader sneak too far away and kept Frazon in his crosshairs until he made a move for the lead down the back stretch on lap four. When the pair crossed the stripe, Prevete was the new leader at lap five. A yellow flag slowed the field at lap six with Prevete leading Frazon, Ted Welschmeyer, Nathan Vaughn, and Marc Carter. At lap ten, Carter and Vaughn were racing clean and hard for the fourth position while Prevete maintained his lead over Frazon. At the finish, it was Prevete who collected his first win of the year with Frazon second, Welschmeyer third, Vaughn fourth, and Carter fifth.

Doug Wetzel and Terry Schultz began the 20-lap main event from row one with Schultz quickly darting out to the early race lead. Initially, Chris Spalding ran second with Larry Drake close behind in third. While Schultz began to distance himself from the rest of the field. Spalding closed in by lap eight but yellow slowed the field for a restart. Meanwhile, last week's winner, Jacob Ebert, drove forward despite having his left front wheel damaged. Per the rules, if a driver can maintain control of their car and remain safely competing, they can continue. Ebert pulled to third on the final restart with Schultz leading over Spalding. Just one caution slowed the race as Schultz powered his way to his 68th career CMS win over Ebert, Wetzel, Sturgis Streeter and Sebastian Wolfenbarger. Spalding originally finished second, but his carburetor was declared illegal in post-race technical inspection and he was disqualified from the feature.

Brandon Hoover and Jeff Hardy began the 15-lap main event on row one, but it was fourth-starting Jonathan Evans who took command early on. Evans pulled away in the early laps but a third of the way into the race, Hardy went too high in turn four on the berm and slow rolled over bringing out the red flag. He was uninjured in the roll-over but retired to the pits. Lat week's winner, Jason Ryun, quickly moved forward after the restart and began closing in on the leader with Evans leading Ryun and Hoover. Lap-after-lap Ryun closed on the leader as the two built up a sizeable lead with under five laps remaining. In the closing laps Ryun found his way to the front with an inside move off turn two and held on for his second-consecutive victory of the season in a close win over Evans. Hoover ran a strong third with David Doelz and Spencer Reiff closing out the top five.

Charlie McKenna and fellow Iowa driver Todd Cooney earned front-row starting spots for the SLMR 30-lap main event. McKenna was quick from the start and grabbed the lead over Cooney and Chad Holladay in the early laps. Last year's winner of this event, Aaron Marrant moved to fourth by lap five. By lap seven, Holladay began to reel in the leader and at lap nine took command of the race. A series of cautions flew just shy of the halfway point while all the time Holladay maintained his lead on each ensuing restart. With ten laps remaining, multiple-time series champion Kyle Berck moved to the second spot, overtaking McKenna for the position while Marrant and Cooney maintained fourth and fifth. With five laps remaining, Marrant gained one more position to move to third while Holladay ran strong to the finish to claim his first-ever SLMR victory. Behind the leader at the line were Berck, McKenna, Marrant, McKenna and Cooney.
