After winning his heat race and placing third in the dash, Brandon George raced to a win in the Arizona Mini Sprint feature race ahead of dash winner Dustin Cormany and Danny Mathus. A rare four division format found Jesse Chinn outracing Kevin Hickson in the Arizona Dwarf Car main event. With the four classes, all four features were run at the 15 lap length.

Battling Henderson for second in points, Brandon Garner lost ground when he was forced to scratch from the feature race. Robinson got that win ahead of Lacy, Henderson, Mike Brigner, Michael Harrison, Mike Harris and Tom Hussak. The factory stocks split 21 cars into a pair of heat races with Henderson taking the first ahead of Tommy Hussak III and E J Jones.
