Bob Alcorn of Emlenton and Gary Hepler of Kersey led 23 other novices to the waving of the green flag in the 15-lap feature. Alcorn led the opening lap before giving way to Slack on lap 2. Slack maintained his lead through a number of cautions with Alcorn, Butch Wolfe, Ron Gregori, and Shawn Lamoreau trying to track down the leader. Late in the race Slack had his hands full with Lamoreau with Lamoreau taking his shot at Slack coming out of turn four. Lamoreau lost control of his car, and went spinning into the infield giving the win to Slack. Alcorn, Dave Britton, and Tom Godin took the heat wins.
