    The first feature of the evening was the make-up feature for the WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds. Matt Suckow took the lead at the start of the race. Jason Vejtruba took the lead from Suckow on lap six. Four laps later, Brian Haben took the lead and went on to win his eighth feature of the season.

    Josh Wentzel took the lead to start the Pure Stock feature. Shane Kruger went on to win his fourth straight feature.
