In the main, Jaskot and Blake took an early lead, pulling away from the group. After trailing Jaskot, Blake was able to overtake and run ahead for a solid win with his Reedy-powered Factory Team B44.3.
In 1:8 Ebuggy Rakus, along with Blake's Reedy-powered RC8B3e, were in a world of their own. Blake eventually took overall TQ with Rakus starting in second. In the main, Rakus and Blake drove away from the field and went 1-2, with Blake taking the win and Rakus in second.
