In the hotly-contested Hobby Stocks class, hometown driver Chris Hovden collected yet another checkered flag. Hovden was followed across the line by Brady Link of Waukon, Iowa, and Steve Holthaus of Cresco. Tim Olson of Harmony took fifth.

Brandon Hare of Elma, Iowa, won the B-Mods feature. Ben Moudry of Cottage Grove took second.

Decorah driver Dan Hovden finished third, earning 91 points. Casey Knutson of Spring Grove checked in as well, taking eighth place in the points race.

In the Stock Cars division, Decorah driver Kyle Falck won all the marbles. He was followed by Iowan Dillon Anderson, who had lined up in fourth place for the feature. Mitch Hovden of Decorah began the race in eighth place, but finished third. Shawn Peter of Mabel took fifth while Chatfield's Brent Tweten finished eighth.
