The 44 Auto Mart Super Late Model feature would see Johnny Wheeler take the lead at the drop of the green flag, with Lee Devasier, Terry English, David Webb, and Jerry Rutherford in pursuit.  Wheeler and Devasier would begin to battle for the lead on lap 2, while Jeff Watson would roll past Rutherford for fifth.  Devasier would have the lead by a nose at the line on lap 3 as the lead duo would battle side-by-side around the track, while Webb began to challenge English for third on lap 5.  Devasier and Wheeler would continue to duel for the lead, with Wheeler getting the advantage again on lap 7 as Webb went by English for third.  The only caution of the event would wave one lap later as Devasier slowed entering turn one with a broken j-bar mount and Webb would spin to avoid Devasier, as track officials called the caution for Devasier.  The restart would have Wheeler still on the point, with Webb, English, Watson, and Rutherford giving chase.  Wheeler and English would settle into an entertaining side-by-side battle for the lead after English passed Webb for second on lap 9.  Watson would close in on Webb for third and would take third on lap 12 as the leaders closed in on slower traffic.  English would get the advantage in turn three on lap 13 by using a slower car for a pick to gain the lead.  By lap 17, English would begin to open his advantage as Watson would begin to reel in second place Wheeler.  As English continued to pull away from the field, Watson would catch Wheeler and would have second as the pair took the white flag, but it would be English leading the final 13 circuits to claim the victory in his Triple A Fence/Seay Motors/Cox Wrecker Service/Sunoco/Wiles sponsored #96 C.J. Rayburn Race Car, Clements Race Engines powered machine.  Watson, Wheeler, Webb, and Rutherford completed the top five, while Gary Yeager, Tanner English, Kevin Colston, Aaron Matthews, and Robbie Bennett completed the top ten.  Terry English would be the top qualifier, while Wheeler won the dash and Watson would win the heat.

 

The $300 to win special for the Street Stock division would see Timmy Glazer win an early race battle with Jason Bartley for the lead and eventually see Glazer slowly pull away from the field to score his fourth Street Stock feature event win of the season at Bluegrass Speedway as the former Street Stock track champion piloted his Cecil Transmission/Tech-One/Chaney Signs and Graphics/Sam Murphy Race Engines sponsored #93 Chevy Monte Carlo to victory.  Bartley would take runner-up honors, followed by Johnny Cecil, Shane Lafollette, and Mike Cozzin, Jr.  Glazer was also top qualifier for the evening as Bartley would win the dash, with Cozzin, Jr. winning the heat.

 

Current Modified division track points Benji Lee would take the lead after a battle with Jason Wheatley and Michael England on the opening circuits of the 20 lap affair and would survive five caution flags to grab the victory in his Thompson Heat and Air/Smart Shoppers/B&B Motorsports/Springfield Auto and Farm Supply/Kirker Automotive Finishes/St. Joe Garage sponsored #03 Bandit Race Car, Dale Meers Race Engines powered mount.  Wheatley would take second, with Josh Lucas battling to third, followed by Randy Turpin and Dion Benningfield.  The remainder of the top ten would be England, Adam Cole, Randy Basham, Jason Priddy, and Brad Schlosser.  Heat race winners were Lee and Wheatley.

 

Pat Hagan continued his winning ways in the WBRT 1320-AM Sportsman division by scoring his seventh win of the season, but would do so in a different car, as Hagan would pilot the Roger and Tish Cecil owned Cecil Trucking/44 Auto Mart/Teamsters Local 89/Chaney Signs and Graphics/El Jimador Mexican Restaurant/RER Concrete sponsored #5 Chevy Monte Carlo, Dale Meers Race Engines powered entry to the win.  Robbie Settles would hold off Avral Thompson for second, while Rob Jones and Dan Dunbar completed the top five.  Thompson would win the heat.
