The Schaeffer Oil Iron-Man Championship Late Model Series and Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Modified Series would visit Lake Cumberland Speedway on Saturday for the Lake Cumberland Classic/Finn Watson Memorial event and Jackie Boggs of Grayson, KY would become the first repeat winner with the tour in 2017 as he would drive to the $5,000 payday. In Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Series competition, Tyler Nicely of Owensboro, KY would score his first series victory in his first time competing with the tour.

The second victory of the season on the tour for Boggs would come aboard the Central Star Drilling/Quest Energy/McCoy Brothers Logging/Reno and Sons Lawn Care sponsored #4B Swartz Race Car. Nicely would score the Modified victory behind the wheel of the Lucas Oil Center/Diggers Fencing, Siding, and Guttering/D&J Auto Parts sponsored #25 Elite Chassis.
The start of the 40 lap, $5,000 to win Schaeffer’s Oil Iron-Man Late Model Series Lake Cumberland Classic/Finn Watson Memorial would be a rocky one as eight cars would tangle in turn one on the opening lap and bring out a red flag for the track being blocked. Once action got going, Kent Robinson would the initial lead, with Tyler Carpenter, Jackie Boggs, Michael Chilton, and Freddie Carpenter giving chase. Boggs would take second from Tyler Carpenter on lap three as Tyler Carpenter would slow on the frontchute on lap five to draw a caution flag. The restart would result in the second red flag of the event when Steve Smith would get upside in turn three and Jeff Watson would be collected in the incident as well. This restart would see Eddie Carrier, Jr. make his way into the top five, while Robinson would maintain the lead, with Boggs in pursuit. As the leaders started working traffic on lap thirteen, Carrier, Jr. would pass Freddie Carpenter for the fourth spot. Boggs would turn up the heat on Robinson and would make a turn-four slidejob pass of Robinson for the lead on lap fifteen. Boggs would jump the cushion in turn two on lap eighteen and Robinson would work to the bottom of the slower car of Jeff Neubert and contact would occur between Robinson and Neubert, resulting in pair tangling on the backchute. The restart, with Boggs out front, would Brandon Fouts make a move and take the third spot from Carrier, Jr., who also receive damage to his car from the previous incident, on lap nineteen and Skylar Marlar would roll by Carrier, Jr. for fourth one circuit later. Skylar Marlar would drive by Fouts for third on lap twenty-seven and Mike Marlar would take fourth Fouts on the same circuit. The Marlar brothers would settle into a great duel for third, while Boggs continued to hold the lead, with Chilton now running second. Mike Marlar would take third from Skylar Marlar on lap thirty-five as the caution would wave on lap thirty-eight for debris on the frontchute to close the field up one final time. Boggs would maintain the lead and drive to the win, with Chilton settling for second, while eleventh place starter Mike Marlar claimed third. Fourteenth starting Skylar Marlar would finish fourth, while twelveth place starter Caleb Ashby completed the top five. The remainder of the top ten would be Fouts, nineteenth starting Bob Gardner, sixteenth starting Tommy Bailey, Jason Welshan, and Steve Stollings.

Tyler Nicely would lead the first thirteen circuits of the Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Modified Series main event, only to lose the lead to Shon Flanary on lap fourteen, but Nicely would retake the race lead on lap fifteen and hold off the charges of Flanary in the closing laps to secure the victory. Flanary would settle for second, with Blake Brown charging to a third-place finish. Peyton Harlow and Jimmy Payne would complete the top five finishers. The remainder of the top ten finishers in the final rundown would be Tommy Bailey, Jimmy Robinson, Jimmy Lennex, Dennis Roberson, and Brandon Ramsey.
