Skylar Marlar would power his way to the lead at the start of the Schaeffer’s Oil Iron-Man Championship Late Model Series, with polesitter Dustin Nobbe, Todd Coffman, Cameron Marlar, and Jeff Watson giving chase. Tommy Bailey would immediately start to challenge Watson for the fifth position and the duo would make contact in the center of turns three and four, resulting in Watson looping his machine and Steve Stollings would make heavy contact with the outside retaining wall in turn four attempting to avoid the accident and would be finished for the night, resulting in the only caution flag of the event. The restart would see Skylar Marlar open a comfortable lead over Coffman, while Cameron Marlar would challenge Nobbe for the third position, with Marlar looking beside Nobbe on several occasions before Marlar would execute a slidejob pass for the position exiting turn four on lap ten. One circuit later, race leader Skylar Marlar would catch slower traffic and this would allow second-place Coffman to reel in the race leader, with Cameron Marlar also closing in on Coffman at this point as the trio saw the halfway signal on lap fifteen. Skylar Marlar would work his way through lapped traffic and would have clear track again in front of him by lap nineteen, while Bailey began to pressure Nobbe for the fourth position.

Bailey and Nobbe would complete the top five. Watson would recover from his early-race accident to finish to head up sixth through tenth at the finish, followed by Rod Carter, Jr., Kenny Cobble, Joey Standridge, and Perry Delaney.

The Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Modified Series main event would be slowed by a quartet of caution flags in the first three laps of the event, but those would be the only thing that would slow Clayton Miller on this night and Miller would be strong throughout the twenty-lap contest and score his second-consecutive series victory of the weekend as he would take the checkered flag first, with Ricky Arms closing in the final laps, but settling for the second position. Shon Flanary and Blake Brown would have a great battle throughout the event for the third position, with Flanary winning the battle eventually and finishing third, with Brown coming home fourth, and Victor Lee would claim fifth to complete the top five finishers.
