The Great Lakes Traditional Sprints would kick off A Main action following preliminary events. The 25 lap A Main saw the 24 of Lee Underwood and No 2DI Dustin Ingle bring the field to green. Ingle would lead the early laps before No 23K Thomas Meseraull would sneak by following a lap 5 caution. No, 41 Ricky Lewis would throw a slide job on TMez on lap 11, Meseraull would cross over and battle back but Lewis would take the point on lap 12. On lap 20, Meseraullbegan to reel in the leader by running the highside of the track in turns 3 and 4 and the bottom of turns 1 and 2. As the leaders took the white flag, lapped traffic would come into play and Meseraull would once again head to the top of turns 3 and 4, Lewis would slide up the track, allowing TMez to cross over and grab the win by half a car length at the finish line. Lewis was second, Underwood would finish third, Ingle fourth, and No 16 Jackson Slone 5th.
