The action and intensity had been building up in the Extreme Asphalt Outlaw division between Mike “Wiley Coyote” Sullivan and Kyle “Road Runner” Tellstrom since the last race which saw the two veteran drivers battling door to door coming out of turn number four. The action started right off in the trophy dash where Sullivan was stopped and talked to about use of track during the four lap trophy dash. It was also a very exciting heat race for the fans that showed just how intense they two drivers are with Tellstrom sending Sullivan sideways once in turn number one as Sullivan was using up a little more track then Tellstrom thought he should be. With the two drivers leaving the crowd on their feet the two went back to the pits until the racing action continued with the main event. The luck of the pill draw put Sullivan ahead of Tellstrom in the lineup for the main event. In the main it saw Sullivan jump out to the early lead followed by Dutcher. Dutcher was passed by Denton who set the fast time for the night who was then putting the charge on Sullivan. During Denton trying to pass for the lead Tellstrom was able to slip under him making the pass on lap twenty five. It was then again the same battle the fans saw during the rest of the night with Tellstrom chasing Sullivan for the lead. Tellstrom was looking high and low but not able to get a run on Sullivan and then the last two laps saw the pair catch up to lap traffic which they navigated through and at the Checkers it was Mike “Wiley Coyote” Sullivan taking the win over Kyle “Road Runner” Tellstrom followed by Brian Denton in third.
"Jammer point’s leader Jason Hunter jump out to the early lead after taking the pack three wide down the front straight."
The Jammers saw some new drivers this weekend at the track and some returning drivers that had not been out this year yet. At the drop of the green flag it saw Jr. Jammer point’s leader Jason Hunter jump out to the early lead after taking the pack three wide down the front straight away. A new comer to the Pro Jammer division Jessy Thurman driving the number forty four passed for second spot making what looked like to be a good run for his first time on the track. Making a pass for the lead Thurman held the top spot for a few laps before being taking over by Pro Jammer driver Scott Strugnell. Strugnell held the lead for the rest of the race to be followed across the checkered line by Young, then Cubbage for the pro division. The Jr. Jammer Points leader retired to the infield with mechanical difficulties on lap number twenty three leaving the win go Roy Ingalls Jr.
The Coors Light Modifieds got off to a shaky start with a first turn yellow coming out for the nose piece coming off the car of Mike Nielson. Slowing for the caution coming down the front stretch drivers all checked up and a tap from Smithhart sent Nielson spinning to the infield. Being the cause of the yellow for the debris Nielson found himself being relegated to the rear of the field for the complete restart. At the drop of the second green it was Sean Keown jumping out to the early lead going down the back straight. He was able to hold off the challenge of Steve Taylor and Alex Andrews for many laps. Andrews brought out the second yellow for the night when he tried to change lanes from the high line to the low line sending the number eleven car of David Lyndall spinning in the infield. At the restart it saw Keown jump back out in to the lead holding the challenge of Taylor off again. Keown lost the lead to Tellstrom on lap number fifteen. When Tellstrom gets out front he is normally a hard driver to run down, but this was not his weekend and a hard charging Richie Potts was working his way through the field ended up on the back bumper of Tellstrom for five laps until making the pass on lap 21 not looking back until taking the checkers again this year at Lakeport Speedway. Following Potts it was Tellstrom, Collins, and Nielson who managed to work his way back up through the field to salvage what started out to be a bad night.
The Rental Solutions Mini Stocks saw Jay Strugnell return to the track to try and give Rich Schram a run for his money. At the drop of the green flag it was David Aceves of Upper Lake that jumped out to the early lead followed by Mike Peterson Sr. of Ukiah. The two ran nose to tail until on the back shoot Jay Strugnell passed Peterson on the outside for second spot. Schram was working his way up from the rear of the field making the pass for the lead on lap six not looking back to take another victory in the Mini Stock Division this season followed by Stillman then Aceves.
The boat races saw nine different competitors take to the track for the night’s event, with three other competitors getting eliminated in the pit area by mechanical problems that prevented them from taking to the track. The bashing and smashing started right at the drop of the green flag as the pack of boats and cars went into turn one to find some stationary boats located through the corner and down the back straightaway. The action saw a new competitor coming to look to unplug the batman and the shark guy and at the end of the night the drains where cleared by Roto Rooter who unclogged the drain and swept the Shark Car and the Batman car right into the lake. After the fans voted it was Roto Rooter who finished first followed by the lake bound Shark Car and following him was the Batman car. Placing again in the top five was Mike Smithhart who was driving the oldest boat car on the track having partaken in all the boat races since they were started at the speedway over 6 years ago.
