Sportsman

In 1/8th Open, Walter Cruz set the TQ and went on to win the main albeit on the last lap, or last half of a lap. Starting off poorly, Cruz had worked his way back towards the front, and cycled back and forth with the leader Carl Lebo. With only a few turns to go and time already expired a mistake gave Cruz the lead and the win.

ProE-A

eBuggy had Brett Kingsbury sitting P1 for the Triple A mains, at the tone, Kingsbury used it to take himself away from the pack and going on to win. With the follow up of A2, again Kingsbury slowly moved out to a comfortable gap, and just managed his race taking another win, and the title.

Pro-A

Brett Kingsbury also had the TQ in Nitro Buggy however JC front man Jason Ruona was starting in P2, and was going to apply pressure from the tone. As the 2 raced away in the early laps, Ruona moved into the lead and controlled the pace. As first pit stops cycled through, Kingsbury and Ruona had a comfortable lead and were working through some traffic taking the lead depending on mistakes. Kingsbury had to take an extended pit for repairs giving Ruona a huge lead. As time was winding down, an unfortunate flame out during the 2nd to last fuel stint took Ruona out of the lead but a quick restart would still get him out in second where he would stay till the end behind winner Leon McIntosh.
