Even though the racing action was hot on the race track and the action was just getting started with the conclusion of all the evening’s heat races and a few main events. The rain broke out at the beginning of the Extreme Asphalt Outlaw Main Event just as the officials were getting ready to warm the cars up, the officials scrubbed the race start off due to prevailing rain. The rain let go for about twenty minutes which was enough to ruin the racing surface for the night’s events.
Before the night was called, the racing action in the Legends of the Pacific division put on one heck of a show in the heat race it was a battle between Jeremy Doss and Luis Tyrell who battled for the front spot for the entire ten laps until Doss charged too hard into turn number three trying to make a last lap pass for the lead that sent his car spinning. The action continued into the main event where Tyrell got out to the lead first followed by Doss. Doss ran the high side the entire race taking a few looks to the inside, but with Tyrell keeping Doss at bay it was Tyrell that took the win, with a slight margin over Bickford who was waiting in the winds and almost made a pass for the lead coming out of the final turn.
The action in the Pro Jammer heat race was stalled with hard contact to the outside retaining wall of the car of Gene Odell and Casey Blocker and this stalled the racing action for a bit until the cars and track were cleaned up. It was just the start to an exciting night because in the main event it was Scott Strugnell that jumped out to the early lead with Wayne Young in tow. It looked like Young was going to have to settle for second as Strugnell had the better car on the free run, but as they started to catch lapped traffic the gap between the two of them started to narrow. Coming in to the last two turns, it was Young who was able to use the traffic to his advantage to take the win in the main event over Strugnell who ended up second.
