In the Midwest Mod feature, Ryan Mickelson led the race from the start with Strand and Travis Sauer challenging. With five laps to go, Strand took the lead with another strong race effort this week and raced to the victory. Brian LePier of Fosston finished in the top three for his fourth consecutive time at area tracks, it was his first time at NCR this season.
In the Purestock feature, Ken Crane was the race leader until four laps remaining. Crane continued to race the outside/high side at NCR, Justin Olson raced on the bottom and pulled away in the final laps. In the Modified feature, it looked like Alex Engelstad would win his first feature this season as he led from the start, building a lead, however, Blake Jetvig and Rick Jacobson worked through traffic to challenge Engelstad. With three laps to go, Engelstad spun out in turn two for a caution flag. Engelstad went to the pits . On the re-start, Jetvig and Jacobson would race side by side for three laps with Jetvig crossing the finish line ahead of the Jacobson 7J from Wilton, Minnesota.
