It marked the third occasion the NSRA regulars had visited the 1/4-mile oval. Twenty-nine teams would make the journey from the American states of Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, and Utah as well as the
Canadian province of British Columbia.

Chowchilla, California driver Eric Humphries would start on the front row and was the leader on the opening lap. He would remain in the
position the entire way as he went on to win his first race of the season with both the Royal Purple NSRA Winged Sprintcars and King Of The Wings. It also is the first career King Of The Wing for the Central Valley native.

Meridian’s Bryan Warf was a respectable second followed by fellow Meridian pilot Johnny Geisler, in third. The rest of the top five would
be made up of fourth finishing Matt Hein, out of Roseburg, Oregon, and Tristen Spiers, out of Adrian, Oregon and racing for Joey and Sarah Moore, in fifth.

Matt Hein was the quickest in qualifying in the early stages of the night. Heat race winners were Austin Carter of Clovis, California,
Johnny Giesler, Hein, and Carmichal, California’s Tom Baker. Ryan Orchard, from Sidney, British Columbia, was the victor in the consolation feature.
