by: John Brewington, Don Jenner broke a minutes-old track record at River City Speedway on Saturday. Jenner broke a new record set by Doug Davenport in an earlier time trial that day. Jenner would finish second overall in the main event.

Jenner would go on to finish second in the main event, behind Jeremy Martin.

In the Sportsman Division, Dan Smith won the trophy dash and then came back to take first in the main event, edging out Bud Russell.

Jeremy Wetherbee finished ahead of Todd Newton and Justin McMullen to win the Street Stock Division main event. McMullen had the fast time of the day in trials and also won the trophy dash.
