Sunday night was a beautiful evening and the racing was HOT! The Street Stock winner was Jasen Wiley in a good battle with Mike Chlebek Jr.David Hilliker survived an incident when Zach Olger had a flat tire and had to battle with Carl Ries to win the Outlaw Late model event. Johnny "Showtime" Miller had his way with the Flinn Stock field as he went home a winner. Zach Olger pocketed the Open Modified event over Chad Bauer while Chris Keller beat out Kyle Borgman in the Late Model feature. Nate Jones moved from the Pro Trucks to the Pro Stocks and proved his success in the Trucks was no fluke as he held off Jesse Player to win the Pro Stock feature. Andrew Fidler made it two for the weekend as he edged out Ryan Paradise in the Pro Truck feature. More on Monday afternoon.

Night one of the two night Labor Day weekend found Ryan Ruhl beating out Dustin Daggett to win the Engine Pro SOD Sprints presented by ARP feature while Rob Brillhart got out early and held a big lead throughout the rest of the Street Stock feature to go home with the win over Mike VanderMark. Jerry Hunt won the Port City Race Car IMCA Modified
event with Taylor Runions winning big in the Races On The Web Flinn Stocks. The Port City Race Car Pro Stocks was a ten lap battle between Gary VanderMark and Rob Brillhart with the win finally going to VanderMark. The final event of the night was the  Engine Pro Pro Trucks and while the truck was the familiar red and white 14, it was Andrew Fidler bringing it home for the win. Racing continues on Sunday!

Unfortunately, front gate admission prices will rise to $12 on 'regular nights' and $15 on 'special nights.' Kids will remain at $5. A season grandstand pass can be obtained for $220. Pit passes remain at $25. In probably the best deal of the year, a family pass for two adults and two kids is only $25! Drivers and their cars must be checked no later than 5:45PM.
