The novices closed the evening's program with Joe Ellis of Houtzdale and Butch Wolfe of Sykesville leading the field to the green. Ellis led the first lap of the 15-lap event before he looped his car around in turn one giving the lead over to Wolfe. Wolfe led for the next two laps with Slack charging to the front. Slack took over the point on lap 4 with Rick Maxim, Ron Gregori, Henry Wilfong, and Bob Alcorn keeping things close. Slack and Maxim opened up some space on the field at the midway point with Gregori, Alcorn, and Fuzzy Fields rounding out the top five. Wolfe's car came to a stop on the backstretch on lap 12 giving the field one last shot at Slack. Slack was strong the rest of the way as he went on claim his fourth win of the season. Dave Britten, Wilfong, and Daniel Clark took the heat wins.
